This paper compares the h-indices of a list of highly-cited Israeli researchers based on citations counts retrieved from the Web of Science, Scopus and Google Scholar respectively. In several case
Non-cryptographic fault-tolerant computing in constant number of rounds of interaction
TLDR
Any function can be evaluated in a constant number of rounds, using messages of size proportional to the size of a constant-depth, unbounded-fanin circuit describing the function, and a means to simulate unbounded fanin multiplicative (or AND) gates using constant rounds is provided.
Coverage and adoption of altmetrics sources in the bibliometric community
TLDR
Findings suggest that some online tools are seeing substantial use by bibliometricians, and that they present a potentially valuable source of impact data.
How to Allocate Network Centers
TLDR
The paper discusses the significant parameters of center allocation, defines the resulting optimization problems, and proposes several approximation algorithms for selecting centers and for distributing the users among them.
Beyond citations: Scholars' visibility on the social Web
TLDR
Web presence widespread and diverse and social reference manager bookmarks are compared to Scopus and Web of Science citations; it is found that Mendeley covers more than 80% of sampled articles, and that MendEley bookmark counts are significantly correlated toScopus citation counts.
Citations to the “Introduction to informetrics” indexed by WOS, Scopus and Google Scholar

TLDR
This paper examined these three citation databases through the citations of the book “Introduction to informetrics” by Leo Egghe and Ronald Rousseau, finding that Google Scholar is not very “user-friendly” as a bibliometric data collection tool at this point in time.
A microscopic link analysis of academic institutions within a country — the case of Israel
TLDR
The purpose was to characterize these links in order to gain a better understanding why links are created and to characterize the interlinkage between the eight Israeli universities.
Search engine results over time-a case study on search engine stability
This paper examines the performance of search engines over time. The performance is not as expected: search engines loose information, relevant URLs that were retrieved at a given time by a certain
