How can we investigate a collaboration further
• FWCI=16.25
• Careful, FWCI is computed
for a small group of articles
(27). The value is highly
influenced by “outliers”,
highly-cited articles in the
group
• Very large number of authors
for a very small data set.
• These data seem to indicate
hyper collaborations in
Physics(Astrophysics)
resulting in highly cited
articles

Who is citing my topics?
Concatenation Klaxon
Concatenation is very useful tool for constructing bulk searches in Scopus (or any other
database with a sensible search language).
In essence concatenation is the operation of joining character strings end-to-end. For
example, the concatenation of “alt" and “metrics" is “altmetrics".
We know that Scopus searches consist of a field and variant
Field(xxxx)
TITLE-ABS-KEY ( phonon )
Concatenation Klaxon
By using Excel we can create a template to hold your variants

AFFILCOUNTRY( Angola ) AFFILCOUNTRY( Angola)


OR AFFILCOUNTRY( Burundi ) OR AFFILCOUNTRY( Burundi)
OR AFFILCOUNTRY( Democratic Republic Congo ) OR AFFILCOUNTRY(Democratic Republic Congo)
OR AFFILCOUNTRY( Cameroon ) OR AFFILCOUNTRY( Cameroon)
OR AFFILCOUNTRY( Central African Republic ) OR AFFILCOUNTRY( Central African Republic)
OR AFFILCOUNTRY( Chad ) OR AFFILCOUNTRY( Chad)
OR AFFILCOUNTRY( Republic of the Congo ) OR AFFILCOUNTRY( Republic of the Congo)
OR AFFILCOUNTRY( Equatorial Guinea ) OR AFFILCOUNTRY( Equatorial Guinea)
Concatenation Klaxon
Nice examples can involve keyword lists, country lists, DOI’s or EID’s.
You can export a list of EID’s from SciVal and bulk load them into Scopus, this can allow you
to find extra information such as funding details or who has cited these publications.
Who is citing my topics?
• Who is citing your work? Which researchers from which institutions?
• Start of by picking a topic of prominence, click on view list of publications?

08.04.2019
Who is citing my topics?
• Export the EID’s from the Topic
• Use concatenation in excel as follows
Who is citing my topics?
• Paste the EID’s into Column B
• Copy column E and paste in Scopus advance search
Who is citing my topics?
Once you have loaded these onto Scopus, select all and click on View Cited by
Who is citing my topics?
You can now see the publications that have cited yours, click on all and then export
Who is citing my topics?
Export the EID’s
Who is citing my topics?
Load the EID’s into SciVal as a publication set

08.04.2019
Who is citing my topics?
• When importing the cited by EID’s back into SciVal, chances are some will
not be matched, this is due to the SciVal data cut (these publications have
not made their way into SciVal yet)

08.04.2019
Who is citing my topics?
• Open in Overview and choose institutions, you can now see where the
citations are coming from

08.04.2019
Who is citing my topics?
• Choose the authors tab to see who exactly is citing you, great for potential
collaborations, future hires and studying the competition.

Two Golden Rules for using research metrics

Always use both qualitative Always use more than one

Benefit from the strengths of both One metric’s strengths can complement the
approaches. Don’t replace one with the other weaknesses of others

Combining both approaches = closer to the


There are many different ways of being excellent

Valuable intelligence comes when these Using multiple metrics drives desirable
approaches show different messages changes in behaviour (harder to game)
How to choose a metric

There are 6 factors, which can


affect the value of a metric:
• Size
• Publication-type
• Manipulation
• Discipline
• Database coverage
