Identification of important works and assessment of importance of publications in vast scientific corpora are challenging yet common tasks subjected by many research projects. While the influence of citations in finding seminal papers has been analysed thoroughly, citation-based approaches come with several problems. Their impracticality when confronted with new publications which did not yet receive any citations, area-dependent citation practices and different reasons for citing are only a few...

Research and development (R&D) in many technological areas is characterized by growing complexity. In biomedical engineering, too, interdisciplinary collaboration is regarded as a promising way to master this challenge. Therefore, identifying suitable experts becomes crucial, which is currently being researched, amongst others, by analyzing semantic data. However, previous approaches lack clarity and traceability of the mechanisms for compiling top-n lists of recommended experts, as domain speci...

Neotropical stream fish assemblages have attracted much scientific attention in recent decades. However, spatial and temporal patterns in sampling, and the types of methodologies being used in studies, remains unclear. Here, we conducted an in-depth review of the published literature on Brazilian stream fish assemblages, recording where and how these surveys were conducted. We found that the number of studies has increased over time, but significant geographic biases remain, with most studies ha...

This paper explores the role of gender gap in the actuarial research community with advanced data science tools. The web scraping tools were employed to create a database of publications that encompasses six major actuarial journals. This database includes the article names, authors’ names, publication year, volume, and the number of citations for the time period 2005–2018. The advanced tools built as part of the R software were used to perform gender classification based on the author’s name. F...

Wu et al. (Nature 566:378–382, 2019) introduced a new indicator measuring disruption (${DI}_{1}). Bornmann et al. (Do disruption index indicators measure what they propose to measure? The comparison of several indicator variants with assessments by peers, 2019. compared variants of the disruption index and pointed to {DI}_{5} as an interesting variant. The calculation of a field-specific version of {DI}_{5} (focusing on disruptiveness within the same ...

Since the h-index has been invented, it is the most frequently discussed bibliometric value and one of the most commonly used metrics to quantify a researcher’s scientific output. The more it is increasingly gaining popularity to use the metric as an indication of the quality of a job applicant or an employee the more important it is to assure its correctitude. Many platforms offer the h-index of a scientist as a service, sometimes without the explicit knowledge of the respective person. In this...

Policy makers are interested in the influence of geographic distance on knowledge flows, however these can be expected to vary across research fields. The effects of geographic distance on flows are analyzed by means of citations to scientific literature. The field of observation consists of the 2010–2012 Italian publications and relevant citations up to the close of 2017. The geographic proximity effect is analyzed at national, continental, and intercontinental level in 244 fields, and results ...

We are now living in an integrated world full of abrupt political events and socio-political uncertainty. A comprehensive scientometric review in this aspect is useful but lacked in the existing literature. This paper fills the void by using VOSviewer and CiteSpace to systematically analyze the 4200 papers on “political instability”, “political uncertainty” and “political risk” during 1953–2019 from Web of Science Core Collection. We present the annual distribution of papers, the related discipl...

Our study is a scientometric analysis of research publications of science and social science disciplines in Pakistan during 2009–2018. The study examines 2000 published articles belonging to 50 research scholars of different disciplines. This analysis is conducted on three different levels: researcher level, field level and domain level. In this paper we discuss readability scores, title formats, single and multiple authorships of articles, citation rates, publication rates over time, the resear...
This study aims to investigate the diachronic change of Master thesis abstracts written by Chinese students in the applied linguistics. A corpus of 1000 English abstracts was built with 100 abstracts per each year during a 10-year period from 2009 to 2018. Based on the multidimensional analysis, both the textual and linguistic changes were investigated. To be specific, the Biber’s (Variation across speech and writing, Cambridge University Press, Cambridge, 1988) six-dimension model was adopted t...
