Abstract A self-consistent methodology is developed for determining citation based influence measures for scientific journals, subfields and fields. Starting with the cross citing matrix between journals or between aggregates of journals, an eigenvalue problem is formulated leading to a size independent influence weight for each journal or aggregate. Two other measures, the influence per publication and the total influence are then defined. Hierarchical influence diagrams and numerical data are… Expand

Net citation balances: A measure of influence between scientific journals
TLDR
A probablistic model is applied to a contingency table with cross-citation frequency counts between scientific journals to derive an interjournal “influence” score which is compared with two other citation-based disciplinary-oriented methods for ranking journals in an application to a number of core journals in astronomy and astrophysics. Expand
Determination of influence weights for scientific journals
A new citation matrix is proposed for the computation of journal influence weights applying Geller's methodology. Instead of self-citations, references to fringe journals are introduced and theExpand
Condensed matter physics journals
TLDR
On the basis of a citation/reference criterion, 20 core journals are selected in the field of condensed matter physics and their different characteristic features such as applied orientation, communication function and longevity are revealed. Expand

USING INFLUENCE WEIGHTS TO EVALUATE THE SCIENTIFIC IMPORTANCE OF JOURNALS
Scientific journals can be evaluated by the amount of new research they stimulate. Influence weights are one method for determining this contribution by measuring both the current use of the journalExpand
Comparison of peer and citation assessment of the influence of scientific journals
TLDR
A strong positive relationship was found to exist between the scientists' assessment of journal influence and the citation influence ratings, with product‐moment and Spearman rank correlations in the 0.7–0.9 range for seven of the ten fields. Expand
Citation rankings of physics journals

Visualization of the citation impact environments of scientific journals: An online mapping exercise
TLDR
Aggregated journal–journal citation networks based on the Journal Citation Reports 2004 of the Science Citation Index and the Social science Citation Index are made accessible from the perspective of any of these journals. Expand

TLDR
The assumption that citation and publication practices are homogenous within specialties and fields of science is invalid and the delineation of fields and among specialties is fuzzy. Expand
Impact functions on the citation network of scientific articles
TLDR
An approach for the definition of a function PS, for any set of scientific articles S, which reflects global properties of the citation network associated to S, is proposed, which is constructed as solution of an iterated system of Perron-eigenvalue problems. Expand

Clustering of scientific journals
TLDR
A cluster analysis procedure is described in which 288 journals in the disciplines of physics, chemistry and molecular biology are grouped into clusters and two‐step citation maps linking the clusters are presented for each discipline. Expand
Interrelationships of scientific journals
TLDR
A large amount of consistency was found between the citing characteristics of the journals in the different scientific fields, with quite clear boundaries between fields and a few well known cross disciplinary journals as cross field information links. Expand
Citation analysis as a tool in journal evaluation.
TLDR
In 1971, the Institute for Scientfic Information decided to undertake a systematic analysis of journal citation patterns across the whole of science and technology. Expand
