Flattery citations of editors, potential referees, and so on have been claimed to be a common strategy among academic authors. [] Key Method To test the flattery citation hypothesis further, we have conducted a study applying the difference-in-differences estimator.

The relationship between the number of editorial board members and the scientific output of universities in the chemistry field

The quantile regression method and the Granger causality test results suggest that the number of editorial board members is positively and significantly related to the scientific output of their universities, however, the causal relationship between the number and number of articles of some top universities is not obvious.

Classification Based on Genre : The Significance of the Textual Location of Citations

The results obtained using the Vector Space Model on the co-citation data gathered from the chemistry articles and their cited documents, show that locations of references can be used to predict similarity and suggest that metadata on the textual location of references are added to citation databases.

What can new technology tell us about the reviewing process for journal submissions in BJET?

This quantitative study considers data about the dates of sending suitable papers to BJET, the papers to referees and when the referees' reports are returned to the editor to find modest agreement between referees on the quality of individual papers.

A lucrative seat at the table: Are editorial board members generally over-cited in their own journals?

A citation analysis of the editorial board members of four Library and Information Science journals analysed at five year intervals from 1995 to 2005 does not unambiguously show a tendency to give flattery citations to editors and members of editorial boards in these four journals.

Another test of the normative theory of citing

The normative theory of citing predicts that authors should not cite preferentially, that is, while it is clear that authors do not cite all of their influences, it is possible that in the aggregate they cite proportional to use.

How fractional counting of citations affects the impact factor: Normalization in terms of differences in citation potentials among fields of science

Fractional citation counts are normalized in terms of the citing sources and thus would take into account differences in citation behavior among fields of science, and the reflection of these differences in fractionally counted citation distributions can be used as a reliable instrument for the classification.
