Title: A new journal citation impact measure that compensates for disparities in citation potential among research areas
Authors: Moed, Henk F
Issue Date: Sep-2010
Publisher: NISCAIR-CSIR, India
Abstract: This paper presents a new journal indicator of citation impact of a scientific-scholarly journal. It builds further upon Eugene Garfield’s groundbreaking ideas presented in many of his early and later publications, by combining his concept of a journal impact factor with his notion that “evaluation studies using citation data must be very sensitive to all divisions, both subtle and gross, between areas of research; and when they are found, the study must properly compensate for disparities in citation potential”1. The proposed indicator is based on a tailor made delimitation of a journal’s subject field, and takes into account the frequency and immediacy of citation and database coverage in a subject field.
