Abstract

This
paper investigates an association between two new variables and
citations in papers. These variables include the abstract ratio (the sum
of repetition of keywords in abstract divided by abstract length) and
the weight ratio (the frequency of paper’s keyword per journal).
The data consist of 5875 papers from 12 journals in education: three
journals from each SCImago quartile. The researchers used
semi-continuous regression to model the data and measure the impact of
the proposed variables on citations. The results revealed that both
abstract ratio and weight ratio are statistically significant predictors
of citations in scientific articles in education.
