Among the most recent bibliometric indicators for normalizing the differences among fields of science in terms of citation behaviour, Kosmulski (J Informetr 5(3):481–485, 2011) proposed the NSP (number of successful paper) index. According to the authors, NSP deserves much attention for its great simplicity and immediate meaning—equivalent to those of the(More)
One of the most significant inaccuracies of bibliometric databases is that of omitted citations, namely, missing electronic links between a paper of interest and some citing papers, which are (or should be) covered by the database. This paper proposes a novel approach for estimating a database's omitted-citation rate, based on the combined use of 2 or more(More)
Indoor GPS (iGPS) is a newly developed laser based measuring system for large scale metrology. The relative portability, reconfigurability and ease of installation make the iGPS suitable for many industries manufacturing large scale products. The system performance depends on both the components characteristics and their physical configuration. Hence, an(More)
In many branches of industry, dimensional measurements have become an important part of the production cycle, in order to check product compliance with specifications. This task is not trivial especially when dealing with large-scale dimensional measurements: the bigger the measurement dimensions are, the harder is to achieve high accuracies. Nowadays, the(More)
An increasing demand for an extended flexibility to model types and production volumes in the manufacture of large-size assemblies has generated a growing interest in the reduction of jig and fixtures deployment during assembly operations. A key factor enabling and sustaining this reduction is the constantly expanding availability of instruments for(More)
As all databases, the bibliometric ones (e.g. Scopus, Web of Knowledge and Google Scholar) are not exempt from errors, such as missing or wrong records, which may obviously affect publication/citation statistics and—more in general—the resulting bibliometric indicators. This paper tries to answer to the question “What is the effect of database uncertainty(More)
Omitted citations – i.e., missing links between a cited paper and the corresponding citing papers – are the main consequence of several bibliometric database errors. This paper investigates the possible relationship between omitted citations and publishers of the relevant citing papers. This relationship is potentially meaningful because: (i) publishers(More)
Similarly to the h-index and other indicators, the success-index is a recent indicator that makes it possible to identify, among a general group of papers, those of greater citation impact. This indicator implements a field-normalization at the level of single paper and can therefore be applied to multidisciplinary groups of articles. Also, it is very(More)
