2 © Prof.dr Jouke van DijkERSA Summerschool July 2006 Paul Cheshire: So - you want an academic career … •A PhD is only a means to an end – ‘satisfy the examiners’. The ‘end’ is peer reviewed publication – collectively these are what constitute the ‘body of scientific knowledge’ •Aim for publication in refereed journals, impactfactors (seek rejections) •Have a publication strategy: Need a ‘pipeline’ •All publications take a significant and variable amount of time going through the process Working paper-conference paper-submission-revision- acceptance….proofs…citation?  Go to conferences, seminars etc; offer papers: you learn and gives discipline

20 © Prof.dr Jouke van DijkERSA Summerschool July 2006 Journal Citation Reports (JCR) •Impact Factor: Provides a way to evaluate or compare a journal’s relative importance to others in the same field •Immediacy Index: Measures how quickly an article is cited during year published •Cited Half-Life: Benchmarks the age of cited articles; useful in collection development

21 © Prof.dr Jouke van DijkERSA Summerschool July 2006 Impact factor •It measures how often articles in a specific journal have been cited: It measures the total number of quotes during a year of the two immediately preceding years' issues •Example: an impact factor of 2 means that every article published in issues of 2003 and 2004 was quoted in 2005 on average 2 times.

22 © Prof.dr Jouke van DijkERSA Summerschool July 2006 Cited Half-Life •Benchmarks the age of cited articles. It measures the number of years, going back from the current year, that account for half the total citations received by the cited journal in the current year. •Example: a value of 4 means that half of all the quotations from the journal in the year 2005 referred to articles published in the last 4 years. The remaining half, then, concerns articles older than 4 years.
