MAIN IMPACT INDEXES

Sometimes, it is hard to know which publications are the best in the sector, either for viewing articles or for publishing pieces. Several rankings of scientific publications exist that measure the importance of publications by analysing a series of indicators. Some of these quality indicators are:

  • Impact factor
    The importance of scientific publications is measured by their impact factor. This is an instrument used to compare publications and to evaluate their importance within the scientific community in a certain area. This factor considers aspects like the number of articles published, or the number of times the articles in a publication have been cited. The organization in charge of calculating this is the Institute for Scientific Information (ISI), which publishes their results in the InCites Journal Citation Reports (JCR). The publications with the most impact appear in the first positions in this ranking. The ranking can be accessed from HTSI facilities, or using a VPN connection from off-campus. (In the dropdown menu, users must choose the option “Federation of Spain by FECYT”).

For investigators, it is important to publish in publications with a high impact factor, for recognition of investigative activity in processes like accreditations or six-year periods, as well as to obtain grants or research projects.

 

  • Quartile
    This indicator helps to evaluate the importance of a publication in comparison to other publications in its area. A list of publications is divided into 4, with each fourth considered a “quartile”. The first Quartile (Q1) is made up of the publications with the greatest impact, and the fourth (Q4) is made up of the publications with the least. The main tool for viewing the quartile of different publications is the InCites Journal Citation Reports (JCR). The ranking can be accessed from HTSI facilities, or using a VPN connection from off-campus. (In the dropdown menu, users must choose the option “Federation of Spain by FECYT”).

 

  • H-index
    This is a measurement system that allows users to evaluate the professional quality of scientists based on their most-cited works and the number of citations of each of their works. The main tools for consulting the H-index are the InCites Journal Citation Reports (JCR) and the SJR Scimago Journal & Country Rank. The ranking can be accessed from HTSI facilities, or using a VPN connection from off-campus. (In the dropdown menu, users must choose the option “Federation of Spain by FECYT”).
