Relations of relative scientometric impact indicators. The relative publication strategy index
- 215 Downloads
Relations of three relative scientometric indicators (Relative Citation Rate, RCR, Relative Subfield Citedness, RW, and Relative Publication Strategy, RPS) are studied. RW can be calculated by the percentage share of citations divided by that of publications. The findings indicate that publishing in journals with relatively high impact factor is a necessary but not sufficient condition for attaining a high RW index.
