Abstract

Emergy-related
studies have been widely conducted worldwide in order to evaluate the
total environmental support and sustainability of one system from both
natural and economic sides. Aiming to depict the characteristics of
emergy-related literatures, recognize global research foci, and forecast
future research directions, a complete review on the related research
progresses by using a bibliometric analysis approach was performed in
this study. H-index is applied to evaluate the influence of most
productive journals, countries/territories, and institutions in
emergy-related fields. Social network analysis is also performed to
evaluate the interaction among different countries/territories and
institutions. A holistic picture of the primary performance of
emergy-related literatures published from 1999 to 2014 is presented.
Co-word analysis reveals that emergy-based sustainability research and
the integration of emergy synthesis with other methods (especially life
cycle assessment) will be future research directions in emergy-related
fields. Results obtained from this study can provide valuable
information for researchers to better identify future hotspots in
emergy-related fields. © 2017 Elsevier Ltd

Abstract

Solar
hydrogen generation is one of the new topics in the field of renewable
energy. Recently, the rate of investigation about hydrogen generation is
growing dramatically in many countries. Many studies have been done
about hydrogen generation from natural resources such as wind, solar,
coal etc. In this work we evaluated global scientific production of
solar hydrogen generation papers from 2001 to 2014 in any journal of all
the subject categories of the Science Citation Index compiled by
Institute for Scientific Information (ISI), Philadelphia, USA. Solar
hydrogen generation was used as keywords to search the parts of titles,
abstracts, or keywords. The published output analysis showed that
hydrogen generation from the sun research steadily increased over the
past 14 years and the annual paper production in 2013 was about three
times 2010-paper production. The number of papers considered in this
research is 141 which have been published from 2001 to this date. There
are clear distinctions among author keywords used in publications from
the five most high-publishing countries such as USA, China, Australia,
Germany and India in solar hydrogen studies. In order to evaluate this
work quantitative and qualitative analysis methods were used to the
development of global scientific production in a specific research
field. The analytical results eventually provide several key findings
and consider the overview hydrogen production according to the solar
hydrogen generation.

Research Impact Measurement

by Nader Ale Ebrahim
Do you know “Over 43% of ISI papers have
never ever received any citations?” (nature.com/top100,
2014
).
Publishing a high quality paper in scientific journals is only halfway towards
receiving citation in the future. The rest of the journey is dependent on
disseminating the publications via proper utilization of the “Research
Tools
”.
Proper tools allow the researchers to increase the research impact and
citations for their publications. This workshop series will provide you various
techniques on how you can increase the visibility and hence the impact of your
research work.

Enrich Research Visibility and Impact by Citation Tracking



Enrich Research Visibility and Impact by Citation Tracking

Enrich Research Visibility and Impact by Citation Tracking

byNader Ale Ebrahim
Citation
tracking is used to discover how many times a particular article has
been cited by other articles. Citation counts are not perfect. They are
influenced by a number of factors. Review articles are sometimes more
often cited than their quality would warrant. Poor quality papers can be
cited while being criticized or refuted. In this workshop, I will
explain about the advantages of "Citation Tracking" and introduced some
“Research Tools” for improving the research visibility, impact,  and
citations by “Citations Tracking”.
