The International Conference on Electrical Power Drive Systems (ICEPDS) is held every two years at Russian universities that significantly contribute to the development of energy systems.
Scopus and Web of Science are the two largest databases that collect data from top scientific journals. Today, publications in journals indexed by these two systems and the number of references to these works in other authors’ papers are key indicators of a scientist’s activity and reputation. But researchers who are submitting their work to such journals for the first time have to deal with a number of challenges, such as finding the right outlet, properly formatting their article, and so on. ITMO.NEWS asked Valentin Milichko, the winner of Scopus Award Russia 2018 and researcher at ITMO University’s Faculty of Physics and Engineering, and George Zograf, a PhD student at the same Faculty, to compile a guide to submitting your article to Scopus- and WoS-indexed journals.
Sometimes it’s hard for junior researchers to find the information on such concepts as impact factor or citation index. In a new project by ITMO.NEWS, we explain these and other things in basic terms. This time, Pavel Kasyanov, a scientometrics expert at Clarivate Analytics, explains what the h-index is, who calculates it, and why it is no longer enough to assess the impact of a researcher.
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.
ITMO University has entered the Academic Ranking of World Universities (ARWU), widely known as the Shanghai Ranking. Considered one of the most objective rankings, it takes into account the universities’ bibliometric indexes and the prevalence of prestigious awards among their graduates and staff. ITMO University entered the ranking in the 801-900 position.
Seven years ago, ITMO University launched the Metamaterials Laboratory. It all began with a grant won by Yuri Kivshar, a world-class scientist and one of Russia’s top physicists. Since then, the university has also launched the Department, and later, the International Research Center of Nanophotonics and Metamaterials. Under Yuri Kivshar’s leadership, the center’s researchers were the first in the world to venture into a completely new field: dielectric nanophotonics, or, as the scientist calls it, “metaoptics”. ITMO.NEWS met with Yuri Kivshar during his latest visit to St. Petersburg to discuss his current work, the future of the most unorthodox field of nanophotonics, and why a scientist shouldn’t stick with the same field of study for their entire life.
The Web of Science Awards 2017 were presented in Moscow to scientists and scientific organizations for their contribution to science. Sixteen Russian scientists received awards, including Yuri Kivshar, research director of ITMO’s Center for Nanophotonics and Metamaterials and a professor of the Australian National University.
The journal "Nanosystems: Physics, Chemistry, Mathematics" was included in the Web of Science Core Collection (WoS CC), a scientometric and bibliographic database. Publishing one’s article in a journal from the WoS CC is the most appropriate way of sharing one’s work with the international research community.
