Analyzing Self-citations in WoS

Bearbeitung: Dr. Ameni Sahraoui
Leitung: Dr. Philipp Mayr
Wissenschaftlicher Arbeitsbereich: Wissenstechnologien für Sozialwissenschaften (WTS)


In this project we want to apply a recently published index - the self-citation index [1] - to a large fraction of Web of Science data in the KB infrastructure. The project proposes the following work packages:

  1. Identification of self-citations in WoS data
  2. Implementation of a self-citation index in the KB infrastructure
  3. Systematic analysis of self-citations of different disciplines and journals within WoS (WoS subject area)
  4. Systematic analysis of self-citations of a random sample of researchers in different career stages
