Bornmann and Leydesdorff (in press) proposed methods based on Web-of-Science data to identify field-specific excellence in cities where highly-cited papers were published more frequently than can be expected. Top performers in output are cities in which authors are located who publish a number of highly-cited papers that is statistically significantly higher than can be expected for these cities. Using papers published between 1989 and 2009 in information science improvements to the methods of…

1 Percentile Ranks and the Integrated Impact Indicator ( I 3 )
Dear Sir: In a brief communication, Rousseau (in press) proposed to redefine percentile classes by " this completely solves the issue raised by Leydesdorff & Bornmann (in press) that in the case of
Percentile ranks and the integrated impact indicator (I3)
We tested Rousseau's (in press) recent proposal to define percentile classes in the case of the Integrated Impact Indicator (I3) so that the largest number in a set always belongs to the highest
Applications and researches of geographic information system technologies in bibliometrics
TLDR
The spatial display and the basic spatial operations for the geographic information derived from literature were introduced, demonstrating that GIS can be directly used to construct digital libraries and several bibliometric indicators attached with research units were investigated.

Which cities produce more excellent papers than can be expected? A new mapping approach, using Google Maps, based on statistical significance testing
TLDR
Based on Web of Science data (a fee‐based database), field‐specific excellence can be identified in cities where highly cited papers were published more frequently than can be expected.
New bibliometric tools for the assessment of national research performance: Database description, overview of indicators and first applications
TLDR
The paper describes various types of information added to the database: data on articles citing the Dutch publications; detailed citation data on ISI journals and subfields; and a classification system of publishing main organizations, appearing in the addresses.
Integrated Impact Indicators (I3) compared with Impact Factors (IFs): An alternative research design with policy implications
TLDR
I3 is compared with IFs for the journals in two Institute for Scientific Information subject categories (“Information Science & Library Science” and “Multidisciplinary Sciences”), and the library and information science set is additionally decomposed in terms of nations.
Mapping the geography of science: Distribution patterns and networks of relations among cities and institutes
TLDR
The authors discuss the pros and cons of various options, and provide software (freeware) for bridging existing gaps between the Science Citation Indices (Thomson Reuters) and Scopus (Elsevier) and these various visualization tools on the other.
Relative indicators and relational charts for comparative assessment of publication output and citation impact
Cross-field comparison ofscientometric indicators1 is severely hindered by the differences in publication and citation habits of science fields. However, relating publication and citation indicators

Is citation analysis a legitimate evaluation tool?
TLDR
It is concluded that as the scientific enterprise becomes larger and more complex, and its role in society more critical, it will become more difficult, expensive and necessary to evaluate and identify the largest contributors.
Subfield-specific normalized relative indicators and a new generation of relational charts: Methodological foundations illustrated on the assessment of institutional research performance
TLDR
It is shown that a set of properly normalised indicators can serve as a basis of comparative assessment within and even among different clusters, provided that their profiles still overlap and such comparison is thus meaningful.
