Science in Brazil. Part 1: A macro-level comparative study
Despite similarities and strong co-publication links with the other countries in the region, Brazil has nonetheless a specific research profile, and forms the largest potential in the Latin American region.
Traces of Prior Art: An analysis of non-patent references found in patent documents
This contribution assesses the role that 'non-patent references', found in patent documents, can play in this respect and reveals that citations in patents allow developing nontrivial and robust indicators.
A bibliometric approach to the role of author self-citations in scientific communication
The results characterise author self-citations - at least at the macro level - as an organic part of the citation process obeying rules that can be measured and described with the help of mathematical models and can be used in evaluative micro and meso analyses to identify significant deviations from the reference standards.
The influence of author self-citations on bibliometric macro indicators
The analysis of citation based indicators for 15 fields in the sciences, social sciences and humanities substantiates that at this level of aggregation there is no need for any revision of national indicators and the underlying journal citation measures in the context of excluding self-citations.
A concise review on the role of author self-citations in information science, bibliometrics and science policy
From the bibliometric viewpoint, there is no reason for condemning self-citations in general or for removing them from macro or meso statistics; supplementary indicators based on self- citations are, nonetheless, useful to understand communication patterns.
Does co-authorship inflate the share of self-citations?
The authors show that at the macro level multi-authorship does not result in any exaggerate extent of self-citations, as shown in other bibliometric studies.
Proceedings literature as additional data source for bibliometric analysis
The weight of proceedings literature in all fields of the sciences, social sciences and humanities as well as the use of the ISI Proceedings database as additional data source for bibliometric studies are analyzed.
Interdisciplinarity and Impact: Distinct Effects of Variety, Balance, and Disparity
It is found that long-term citations increase at an increasing rate with variety, decrease with balance, and increase at a decreasing rate with disparity, and interdisciplinarity also affects the process of citation accumulation.
Better late than never? On the chance to become highly cited only beyond the standard bibliometric time horizon
This study is focussed on a large-scale analysis of the citation history of all papers indexed in the 1980 annual volume of the Science Citation Index to analyse whether the share of delayed recognition papers is significant and whether such papers are typical of the work of their authors at that time.
Academic Research Strengths and Multinational Firms' Foreign R&D Location Decisions: Evidence from R&D Investments in European Regions
Although an expanding literature on university–industry linkages has suggested that proximity to academia can increase the innovative performance of firms, the role of academic research in the R&D…
