1 Citation Impact Trends: Attention, Aggregation, and Relation James Pringle Thomson Reuters 4/14/2010

2 Attention, Aggregation, and Relation Proxies for value and quality –Citations: attribution, credit, impact, influence –Attention—a more general concept? Aggregates are complex –Researcher: Sum of achievements, with ORCID as identifier? –Institution: Sum of outputs or intellectual capacities? –Journals: Pre-defined aggregates without standard units? –Documents: Standard units in process of disaggregation? Metadata provides a gold mine of link relationships 2

3 Mining Linked Relationships 3 Funder Funds Acknowledgement Peer Review Grant, P&T Rankings Authorship Researcher Peer Review Manuscript Download Researcher Journal University Co-author Document Cites Is Cited By Data Set Supplementary Material Video Web Editorial Board

4 Using Citations to Measure Aggregates Journal Aggregates –Impact Factor and variants: Direct measures of journal aggregates –Network-based measures –Cross-field comparisons (“fractional” or “citing-side”) Generalized Aggregate Measures –H-type measures –Normalized impact (citation baselines) 4

5 5 Analytics Require Normalized Aggregates Relative Impact (InCites™) Evidence (Impact Profiles®) Actual/Expected Citation Rates (InCites™)

6 6 Network Analysis Organizes Link Relationships Co-funding network (Discovery Logic) Co-citation based disciplinary network: JCR categories mapped (after Leydesdorff )

7 Portfolio Key Performance Indicators Source: NIAID e-SPA Discovery Logic / IU 7 Multivariate Portfolio Analysis Funding Portfolio Analysis: (Discovery Logic)
