Silvana Roque de Oliveira's insight:

Entrevista com Stacy Konkiel (da ImpactStory), compreensivelmente muito favorável às métricas alternativas, mas também honesta intelectualmente, reconhecendo que ainda não sabemos ao certo o significado e a fiabilidade do que podemos quantificar com estas métricas. É necessário fazer ainda muita pesquisa na área do Comportamento Informacional.

Silvana Roque de Oliveira's insight:

Um bom estudo, que nos põe um pouco alerta em relação à validade das métricas alternativas em relação aos indicadores clássicos. Nenhum dos métodos é infalíveis, e é melhor avançar com cautela, pois não abundam soluções rápidas e miraculosas no que toca a avaliação da ciência.

Graphical interface of the SCImago Journal and Country Rank: an interactive aproach to accessing bibliometric information

Graphical interface of the SCImago Journal and Country Rank: an interactive aproach to accessing bibliometric information | Measuring science | Scoop.it

A graphical interface designed to access the bibliometric indicators database of the SCImago Journal & Country Rank portal (http://scimagojr.com/shapeofscience) is described. The map was generated from the relational matrix based on the citation, co-citation, and bibliographic coupling formed by the nearly 20,000 publications (journals and conference proceedings) registered in Scopus. The map layout is based on a variant of a force-directed algorithm using Noack’s proposal of an edge-repulsion energy model. The interface allows the publications’ bibliometric indicators and the cluster structures that they form to be displayed based on their shared use by the authors of the documents. To facilitate navigation, the interface automatically positions the reference areas and subject categories which are viewable via zoom-and-pan. The interface may be found to constitute a useful tool for analyses of the Scopuspublications’ presence in different scientific domains, and of the global distribution of the publishing capacity of different countries and regions. It uses the method of overlaying maps to locate subsets of selected publications in the context of the global publication structure.
