Proof of Reference(PoR): A unified informetrics based consensus mechanism

  title={Proof of Reference(PoR): A unified informetrics based consensus mechanism},
  author={Parul Khurana and Geetha Ganesan and Gulshan Kumar and Kiran Sharma},
Bibliometrics is useful to analyze the research impact for measuring the research quality. Different bibliographic databases like Scopus, Web of Science, Google Scholar etc. are accessed for evaluating the trend of publications and citations from time to time. Some of these databases are free and some are subscription based. Its always debatable that which bibliographic database is better and in what terms. To provide an optimal solution to availability of multiple bibliographic databases, we… Expand

Figures and Tables from this paper


A weighted unified informetrics based on Scopus and WoS
A weighted unified informetrics system takes into account the input from multiple indexing databases and generates a single output, named “conflate”, which is used to generate a conflate dataset. Expand
Comparing Bibliometric Statistics Obtained from the Web of Science and Scopus
For more than 40 years, the Institute for Scientific Information (ISI, now part of Thomson Reuters) produced the only available bibliographic databases from which bibliometricians could compileExpand
Availability of digital object identifiers (DOIs) in Web of Science and Scopus
The results show a generally increased percentage of items with DOI in all the disciplines in both databases, which provide very similar numbers and trends. Expand
Web of Science, Scopus and Google Scholar: A content comprehensiveness comparison
It became evident during the verification process that the citation resources retrieved varied results, and the total citation counts indicated that ISI Web of Science (WOS) retrieved the same results as Google Scholar. Expand
The right to refuse unwanted citations: rethinking the culture of science around the citation
The right to refuse to be cited or to refuse a citation is discussed as valid and invalid literature increasingly gets mixed through citations, and as the grey zone between predatory/non-predatory and scholarly/unscholarly becomes increasingly difficult to distinguish. Expand
Impact of h-index on authors ranking: A comparative analysis of Scopus and WoS
The difference in the h-index compiled with Scopus and Web of Science (WoS) is compared with the publication records of 350 authors from Monash University (Australia) with the aim of analyzing the ranking of the authors within a university. Expand
Google Scholar, Web of Science, and Scopus: which is best for me?
Being able to find, assess and place new research within a field of knowledge, is integral to any research project. For social scientists this process is increasingly likely to take place on GoogleExpand

  • K. Sharma
  • Political Science, Computer Science
  • ArXiv
  • 2020
The study provides an insight that how a fraud leads to another fraud in the scientific world is provided, and the rising trend of citations of retracted papers is a serious concern. Expand
Comparisons of citations in Web of Science, Scopus, and Google Scholar for articles published in general medical journals.
Comparing the citation count profiles of articles published in general medical journals among the citation databases of Web of Science, Scopus, and Google Scholar produced quantitatively and qualitatively different citation counts. Expand
Two new kids on the block: How do Crossref and Dimensions compare with Google Scholar, Microsoft Academic, Scopus and the Web of Science?
  • A. Harzing
  • Computer Science, Sociology
  • Scientometrics
  • 2019
Overall, this first small-scale study suggests that, when compared to Scopus and the Web of Science, Crossref and Dimensions have a similar or better coverage for both publications and citations, but a substantively lower coverage than Google Scholar and Microsoft Academic. Expand
