Citations, self-citations, and citation stacking

We have covered the diverse range of citation metrics in previous
posts and although their number continues to grow, the Impact Factor is
still the most important. Despite increasing concerns about how the
Impact Factor is being used, far beyond its main purpose to evaluate
citation profiles of journals, it is a key metric on which authors
choose journals and often editors want to ensure theirs is as high as

New journal citation metric – Impact per Publication

From summer 2014, Scopus and the Centre for Science and Technology
Studies (CWTS) at Leiden University will be publishing a new

CrossMark: Keeping Readers Up to Date

In his analysis of 742 retractions from PubMed, R.G. Steen
observed that not only have the number of retractions over the past
decade increased in proportion to the number of articles published, but
also “journals often fail to alert the naive reader; 31.8% of retracted
