PageRank for Ranking Journals January 10, 2008Posted by Andre Vellino in CISTI Visualization, Collaborative filtering, Recommender.
It uses 13,000 journals, many from Scopus (one wonders – how did they get the IP rights to use the citation data?!)
Like EigenFactor, SCImago performs Journal Ranking using a PageRank-like algorithm.
SCImago also has a nice graphing tool that allows you to look at co-citations maps by subject:
and citation frequency bubble-charts:
by topic and by country for a given year.
It wouldn’t take much to animate sequences of these bubble-maps and show how citation numbers are changing over time, a bit the way Gapminder does it.
In the rankings by country over the past 10 years, Canada article citation ranking is consistently 7th by absolute numbers. On a per capita basis Canada is 6th in cited publications, ahead of the U.S., Germany and France; #1 and #2 per capita are Switzerland and Sweden.
