Is collaboration among scientists related to the citation impact of papers because their quality increases with collaboration? An analysis based on data from F1000Prime and normalized citation scores
The results point out that the effect of collaboration activities on impact is largely independent of the papers' quality; the citation advantage is apparently not quality related; citation‐specific factors (e.g., self‐citations) seem to be important here.
Hot and cold spots in the US research: A spatial analysis of bibliometric data on the institutional level
This case study uses the Getis–Ord G∗ i (d) statistic for bibliometric data on US institutions to identify hot spots of institutions on a map publishing many high-impact papers.
The geography of references in elite articles: Which countries contribute to the archives of knowledge?
The results confirm the well-known fact that China has emerged to become a major player in science, however, China still belongs to the low contributors when countries are ranked as contributors to the cited references in top-1% articles.
Network analysis to measure academic performance in economics
This paper shows how the use of network analysis techniques provides a more global point of view, introducing indicators that, beyond individual merits, measure the capacity of researchers to generate more intangible assets.
Core elements in the process of citing publications: Conceptual overview of the literature
Mapping the impact of papers on various status groups: A new excellence mapping tool based on citation and reader scores
The institutional impact measurement of the tool has been expanded by focusing on additional status groups besides researchers such as students and librarians and the visualization of the data has been completely updated by improving the operability for the user and including new features such as institutional profile pages.


Ranking and mapping of universities and research-focused institutions worldwide based on highly-cited papers: A visualisation of results from multi-level models
Based on data gathered from Scopus, field-specific excellence can be identified in institutions where highly-cited papers have been frequently published.
Ranking and mappping of universities and research-focused institutions worldwide: The third release of excellencemapping.net
The effect of covariates (such as the perceived corruption in a country in which a research institution is located) on two performance metrics is examined and visualized and the third version based on new data is described.
Topical connections between the institutions within an organisation (institutional co-authorships, direct citation links and co-citations)
This study illustrates the possibility of comparing the self-perception of institutions of this organization with a view to (possible) mutual collaboration with the external perception through analysis of co-authorships, direct citation links, and co-citations.
Does the higher citation of collaborative research differ from region to region? A case study of Economics
The main findings are that the extent to which collaborative articles were more highly cited varied considerably from country to country, from state to state, and from indicator to indicator, indicating the importance of using multiple indicators when investigating citation advantage.
Multilevel-statistical reformulation of citation-based university rankings: The Leiden ranking 2011/2012
A reformulation of the Leiden Ranking 2011/2012 by means of multilevel regression models showed that only 5% of the PPtop10% total variation is attributable to differences between universities, and it is possible to interpret the significance of differences among universities meaningfully.
A multilevel modelling approach to investigating the predictive validity of editorial decisions: do the editors of a high profile journal select manuscripts that are highly cited after publication?
Summary.  Scientific journals must deal with the following questions concerning the predictive validity of editorial decisions. Is the best scientific work selected from submitted manuscripts? Does
