  47. 47. TITLE OF PRESENTATION | 47 47| Choose the field where the term must be searched. The default fields are: title, abstract and keywords Document Search
  48. 48. TITLE OF PRESENTATION | 48 48| Document Search Enter several search terms and combine them with Boolean operators (and, or and not).
  49. 49. TITLE OF PRESENTATION | 49 49| Limit your search by publication year or type of content Document Search
  50. 50. TITLE OF PRESENTATION | 50 50| Some tips to get less results but more relevant ones: the quotation marks and much more If you type without quotation marks: you get lots of results but not necessarily the ones relevant for you
  51. 51. TITLE OF PRESENTATION | 51 51| Quotation marks “ ” will search for fuzzy phrases. It will also search for both singular and plurals (with some exceptions). Symbols are ignored. Wildcards can be used. “heart-attack” will search for heart-attack, heart attack, heart attacks, and so on Curly brackets { } will search for a specific phrase. It limits the search to only the specified character string, and symbols can be used.{heart-attack} will only search for heart-attack By using the quotation marks and the curly brackets, you get less results but more relevant ones
  52. 52. | 52 Useful search operators (Boolean, wildcards …) • Boolean operators: and, or, and not • To find exact phrase use braces: {oyster toadfish} • To find loose phrase, use double quotation marks: “heart attack” • Use * to replace any number of characters: he* will match any word starting with he, such as he, her, help, hello, helicopter • Use ? to replace one character: he? Will match hem, hen, etc. • Proximity operators - pain W/15 morphine finds articles in which "pain" and "morphine" are no more than 15 terms apart. - behavioural PRE/3 disturbances finds articles in which "behavioural" precedes "disturbances" by three or fewer words.
  53. 53. TITLE OF PRESENTATION | 53 53| To search for an exact phrase To find documents that contain an exact phrase, including any stop words, spaces and punctuation, enclose the phrase in brackets: {oyster toadfish}. To search for a loose or approximate phrase To find documents where your search terms appear adjacent to each other enclose the terms in double quotes: "cell behavior". When you use double quotes : AND is not automatically inserted between terms. Punctuation is ignored. Entering "heart-attack" or "heart attack" returns the same results, because the hyphen is ignored. Wildcards are searched as wildcards. Searching for "criminal* insan*" finds criminally insane and criminal insanity. Plurals are included. Searching for "heart attack" finds heart attack and heart attacks.

  104. 104. TITLE OF PRESENTATION | 104 # of citations accrued since publication CITATION COUNT A simple measure of attention for a particular article, journal or researcher. As with all citation-based measures, it is important to be aware of citation practices. The paper “Effective Strategies for Increasing Citation Frequency” (http://papers.ssrn.com/sol3/papers.cfm?abstract_id =2344585) lists 33 different ways to increase citations. https://libraryconnect.elsevier.com/metrics
  105. 105. TITLE OF PRESENTATION | 105 # of citations received by a document expected # of citations for similar documents FIELD-WEIGHTED CITATION IMPACT (FWCI) Similar documents are ones in the same discipline, of the same type (e.g., article, letter, review) and of the same age. An FWCI of 1 means that the output performs just as expected against the global average. More than 1 means that the output is more cited than expected according to the global average; for example, 1.48 means 48% more cited than expected. https://libraryconnect.elsevier.com/metrics

  117. 117. | 117 | | 117 First generation metrics • For a large number of years the assessment of a journal’s quality has been dominated by the Impact Factor • Developed by Prof Eugene Garfield in 1960”s • The calculation of the impact of a journal is based on the average number of times the articles of a journal is cited in a two year period The 2013 Impact factor for the journal Nature = Citations in 2013 for items published in 2012+2011 –––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––– Number of articles 2011 & 2012 = 42.351
  118. 118. | 118 | | 118 Journal Impact Factor 2012* Pain 6.125 Nature Genetics 38.597 Annals of Mathematics 3.027 Computers & Operations Research 2.374 Progress in Energy and Combustion Science 17.778 Addiction Biology 5.914 Remote Sensing of Environment 6.144 *Journal Citation Reports 2013 Answer: All of them are the best journals in their subject areas. With IF journals from different subject fields CANNOT be compared. Which Journal is the Best Journal?
  119. 119. | 119 | | 119 Limitations of Impact Factor • Cannot compare across subject fields • Only uses the articles cited by the ~13,000 “ISI journals” • Some disciplines are especially poorly covered • Biased toward English-language journals • Short (two year) snapshot of journal • Some disciplines use older material more or take time to cite new research • Includes self-citations, that is articles in which the article cites other papers in the same journal • Differences in the nominator and denominator • San Francisco Declaration on Research Assessment (DORA) - more than 4,000 individual signatories and over 160 organizations

  121. 121. | 121| 121| 121 When used correctly, research metrics together with qualitative input give a balanced, multi-dimensional view for decision-making Two Golden Rules for using research metrics Always use both qualitative and quantitative input into your decisions Always use more than one research metric as the quantitative input

TITLE OF PRESENTATION | 126 126| SJR measures the prestige or influence of a scientific journal SJR considers not only the raw number of citations received by a journal… but also the importance or influence of the source of those citations SJR is a combination of the quantity & quality of the citations received SCImago Journal Rank On top of CiteScore, 2 other metrics to compare journals,SJR & SNIP:
  127. 127. TITLE OF PRESENTATION | 127 127| Source Normalized Impact per Paper SNIP measures the contextual citation impact of a journal by normalizing citation values SNIP takes a research field’s citation frequency and the database field’s coverage into account It avoids delimitation and counters subject differences to balance the scales SNIP shows differences due to journal quality and not citation behavior On top of CiteScore, 2 other metrics to compare journals,SJR & SNIP:
  128. 128. | 128 | | 128 • Elsevier adopted these 2 metrics which counter some of the limitations of Impact Factor • Source Normalized Impact per Paper (SNIP) • SCImago Journal Rank (SJR) • Corrections entail 1. Normalising across subjects (SNIP) 2. Weighting according to the citing journal (SJR) The two different impact metrics are all based on methodologies developed by external bibliometricians and use Scopus as the data source.

  152. 152. TITLE OF PRESENTATION | 152 152| What is an abstract and indexing database?  Unlike a basic database, an A&I database does not contain full- text  Instead, and A&I database integrates research abstracts (summaries) and citation data in a central index  Each Scopus record correspond to individual documents and can be used to “point” to full-text research, such as Science Direct  Research documents are linked via their bibliographies creating a Web of interconnected research  This makes research easier to search, quantify and analyze
  153. 153. | 153 | | 153 Calculate the IF in Scopus In any given year, the impact factor of a journal is the average number of citations received per paper published in that journal during the two preceding years.[1] For example, if a journal has an impact factor of 3 in 2012, then its papers published in 2010 and 2011 received 3 citations each on average in 2012. The 2012 impact factor of a journal would be calculated as follows: A = the number of times that articles published in that journal in 2010 and 2011, were cited by articles in indexed journals during 2012. B = the total number of "citable items" published by that journal in 2010 and 2011. ("Citable items" are usually articles, reviews, proceedings, or notes; not editorials or letters to the editor.) 2012 impact factor = A/B.
  154. 154. TITLE OF PRESENTATION | 154 154| Calculate the IF in Scopus British Journal of Nutrition : IF 3.302 1. Go to advanced search in Scopus: SRCTITLE(xxx ) 2. Limit your search to 2010+2011= B (number of documents published in 2010+11) 3. Select ALL titles and “view citation overview” 4. Look up total number of citations in 2012: A 5. Divide A/B and you receive the Impact factor

  156. 156. TITLE OF PRESENTATION | 156 156| Thank you! Non Solus – Not Alone [..] the intertwined tree and vine represent a fruitful relationship […] the logo represents […] the symbiotic relationship between publisher and scholar. The addition of the Non Solus inscription reinforces the message that publishers, like the elm tree, are needed to provide sturdy support for scholars, just as surely as scholars, the vine, are needed to produce fruit. Publishers and scholars cannot do it alone. They need each other. This remains as apt a representation of the relationship between Elsevier and its authors today – neither dependent, nor independent, but interdependent.
