Net citation balances: A measure of influence between scientific journals

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.

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 the

Condensed matter physics journals

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.

Comparison of peer and citation assessment of the influence of scientific journals

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.

Visualization of the citation impact environments of scientific journals: An online mapping exercise

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.

Caveats for the Use of Citation Indicators in Research and Journal Evaluations

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.

Modifying the journal impact factor by fractional citation weighting: The audience factor

The audience factor is a variant of a fractional citation-counting scheme, but computed on the citing journal rather than the citing article or disciplinary level, and, in contrast to other cited-side normalization strategies, is focused on the behavior of the citing entities.

Seed journal citation network maps: A method based on network theory

This study shows a method based on network theory to identify the most important journals related to a given journal, the seed journal, suggesting influence relations between journals in such a way that traditional field boundaries are transcended.

Citation analysis of scientific journals and journal impact measures

Eugene Garfield's creative work on journal impact measures served more than one function. These measures were originally designed and applied to monitor the journal coverage of the Science Citation



Clustering of scientific journals

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.

Interrelationships of scientific journals

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.

Citation analysis as a tool in journal evaluation.

In 1971, the Institute for Scientfic Information decided to undertake a systematic analysis of journal citation patterns across the whole of science and technology.
