Clarivate Analytics Expert on Why Russian Researchers Are Cited Less and Universities Aren’t Included in Innovation Rankings
Today, sciento- and bibliometrics are very important: researchers worldwide are supposed to get published often and to check their papers’ citation index. However, experts note that bibliometrics is a sophisticated tool that needs to be applied properly in order to be actually useful for science and research. ITMO.NEWS met with Pavel Kasyanov, a scientometrics expert at Clarivate Analytics, the company that owns Web of Science, and found out why historians and physicists can’t be compared, why Russian researchers don’t get as many citations as their international colleagues, and why many experts criticize the Hirsch index.
The results of the Webometrics Ranking of World Universities are published every six months. In the latest edition of the online ranking, ITMO University is back among the top-5 Russian universities, taking the 4th place in the national ranking and 650th globally.
Publishing your results is a vital step in the research lifecycle, as it allows you to get your work seen by the scientific community, and exchange your ideas globally. But writing a scientific paper is not only about creativity, but also about good structure and following some key rules. If you don’t follow these rules, your article may end up being either boring or incomplete, which means that it won’t be cited. Jeffrey Robens, Springer Nature Journal development manager, conducted an open workshop at ITMO University, where he shared some advice on how to write a good scientific article.
