1 Collaboration, Competition and the Global Drivers of Research Moscow, 18 May 2010 Dr Wim J.N. Meester Senior Product Manager


3 Science is growing globally Knowledge, networks and nations, The Royal Society, 2011

4 New global leaders are emerging Countries ranked by output growth 1997-2007 (percentage) “Today the dominant position of the United States in the international research and education community is being challenged as never before.” -American Academy of Arts and Sciences

5 Sharing in science

6 Scientists seek recognition for their work There is one character trait... which is an intrinsic part of a scientist’s culture, and which the public image doesn’t often include: his extreme egocentricity, expressed chiefly in his overmastering desire for recognition by his peers. No other recognition matters. And that recognition comes in only one way. It doesn’t really matter who you are or whom you know. You may not even know those other scientists personally, but they know you—through your publications.

7 CollaborationCompetition Driver of collaboration and competition Funding Personal loyalties Ideological, social and political forces Publish or perish Low-cost communication and travel Personal gain Funding Personal antipathies Ideological, social and political forces Publish or perish Drive for individual recognition Personal gain

8 International collaboration is rising globally International collaboration rate Year 1996199719981999200020012002200320042005200620072008

9 International collaboration is field-dependent Numbers denote number of articles (thousands) in each subject area in 2008 International collaboration rate

10 International collaboration increases citation impact

11 International collaboration leads to more citations Russia achieves more than three-fold publication impact increase by collaborating with ‘country x’ (in 2008)

13 And in Russia

14 How to use Scopus to promote your journal’s authors?

15 Tools to increase collaboration based on Scopus content Evaluate research performance and make informed strategic decisions

16 Find experts and enable collaboration Tools to increase collaboration based on Scopus content

17 SciVerse Scopus: Content coverage and title selection Dr Wim J.N. Meester Senior Product Manager Moscow, 18 May 2010

18 7 million researchers worldwide 1,5 million research articles per year 3 articles published per minute “Average researcher is reading 300+ articles per year” “Researchers can spend up to 31% of time on content related activities”

19 Scopus: Scanning the horizon for quality research Scopus: a broader view on Science

20 Broadest source for research answers 17,500 Peer reviewed journals 400 Trade journals 300 Book series A rich and extended coverage including Abstracts and citations from > 5,000 publishers 4,4 Million conference papers (10% of Scopus records) “Articles in Press” from more than 3,750 titles 24 Million Patents 1,200 Open Access journals 80% of all Scopus records have an abstract Abstracts going back to 1823 40 languages covered 315 m integrated scientific websites via Scirus > 18,500 titles

21 Breadth of coverage across subject areas More than 18,500 titles in Scopus, titles can be in more than one subject area Health Sciences 6,200 (100% Medline) Nursing Dentistry etc., Social Sciences 5,900 Psychology Economics Business A&H etc., Life Sciences 3,950 Neuroscience Pharmacology Biology etc., Physical Sciences 6,350 Chemistry Physics Engineering etc.,

22 Breadth of coverage across geographical areas l Wider coverage gives a more accurate picture of the research landscape 5,950 500 400 8,700 1,050 1,600 350

23 Breadth of coverage Russia RussianOther language Number of documents in Scopus with Russian country affiliation in 2006 – 2010 187 Russian titles in Scopus

24 Publication types Bio- Medicine Physical Sciences EngineeringSocial Sciences Humanities All Sciences Adding other content types in subject areas where it matters most

25 Broader coverage than nearest peer Scopus (Total: 18,772) Web of Science (Total: 11,419) 8,234 881 10,538 “The Scopus surplus”

26 Broader coverage means more citations Number of citations to most cited articles in WoS and Scopus Scopus has on average 10% more citations per article >7,000 citations for these examples In Thousands Nearest peerScopus

27 Broader coverage = higher citations

28 Exponential growth of academic/scholarly journals June 2010

29 505 And new global leaders are emerging Countries by research output growth rate (%) 1997-2007 366 204 159 126 98 76 80 63 50 49 10 5 48 45 35 25 22 -6 Low growth rate High growth rate

30 But these new leaders have relatively low citation rates 0.15 0.19 0.22 0.23 0.20 0.21 0.46 0.39 0.30 0.45 0.48 0.56 0.33 0.68 0.59 0.51 0.56 0.54 0.47 0.13 Countries by average citation count in 2007 Low citation rate High citation rate

31 Quality selection by independent, international board

32 Scopus new title suggestions

33 Technical criteria Eligibility Peer-review English abstracts Regular publication References in Roman script Publication ethics and malpractice statement

34 Journal policy English language abstracts available All cited references in Roman alphabet Convincing editorial concept/policy Level of peer-review Diversity in provenance of editors Diversity in provenance of authors Quality of content Academic contribution to the field Clarity of abstracts Conformity with journal’s aims & scope Readability of articles Citedness Citedness of journal articles in Scopus Citedness of editors in Scopus Regularity No delay in publication schedule Accessibility Content available online English-language journal home page Quality of home page Scopus selection criteria a combination of quantitative and qualitative measures

35 Scopus Title Evaluation Process Input Suggest Title Check against pre-conditions OK for Review? Not for review Further enrich titles Review title Make decision External Reviewer Rejection + reasons Setup content feed Feedback decision Y Y N N Publisher CSAB

36 Top 25 countries suggested titles 2008-2011 Under review Not for review Reviewed (n=6156)

37 Top 25 countries reviewed titles (2011) Rejected Accepted (n=232)

38 Scholarly titles from the Russian Federation (20%) (13%) Under review by CSAB Suggested for review Accepted Not accepted for review Rejected

39 Pro-active: Social Sciences and A&H comparison study ERIH (5,186) AERES (5,116) Francis (2,344) Cairn (219) 1,200

40 Comprehensiveness Adding Publishers’ archives (> 2,650 titles) Planned:

41 This is an “article number”, not a Page Number New software is being installed to match citations for journals that use this publication method Quality of content and Correctness This is an “article number”, not a Page Number

42 Tools to improve user experience Datasets

43 Thank You

44 Global competition has increased dramatically Countries ranked by published output (times 1,000 documents) 2007 1997

45 Scholarly titles from Spain (14%) (4%) Under review by CSAB Suggested for review Accepted Not accepted for review Rejected

46 Local initiatives: FECYT (Spain) Excellent Scientific quality Formal quality Basic quality Pre-selection

47 Collaboration between Brazil, Russia, India and China and the G7 (2004-2008)

48 Thank You
