Citation report

Citation report for CUE employees

Please note: The above link allows research staff to see their citation report. Clicking on it doesn’t mean ordering a full citation report. To order full citation report please contact the library by email, telephone or in person. When ordering the citation report please remember that its preparation will take minimum of two weeks. This period may be insufficient if the author does not cooperate in collecting citations from other sources.
Reporting citations

Citation reports for CUE employees are not public information.

CUE employees are welcome to individually download the script (step 1) and to cooperate in the collection of the citations (step 2), so that the citation report will be complete.

Step 1

Download the report script ( form option raport cytowalności). The script will be sent to the official university e-mail address of the CUE employee.

Generated citation report is based on the data from the following library databases:

  • Dorobek (database provides standardized citations, which allows to aggregate inaccurate citations);
  • Cytowania database, where library employees systematically collect data from databases: Web of Science, Scopus and BazEkon.
    Cytowania database also collects citations provided by the authors (step 2). Please note that such data must always be verified.

Step 2 Reporting citations.

For submitting new citations to the report please use form, option zgłoszenie cytowania.

The author may also bring citing works (see contact info) and delegate the registration of citations to the librarians.

The form contains description fields for work cited and citing work. If bibliographic descriptions are not taken from outside sources please use the Harvard style references.

We recommend, however, to obtain bibliographic records from the Dorobek database (option: pozyskaj z bazy DOROBEK). Bibliogrpahic descriptions are available for works registered in the database and published after 2004.

Please note that in case of a document absent in the library collection we ask the author to present such work for verification

The most comprehensive citation report is particularly important in proceedings regarding:

  • conferment of the academic degree of doktor habilitowany (habilitated doctor), and academic title of professor (professor)
  • research grant - National Science Center
  • membership in academic associations.

Cooperation with the authors in these areas is treated as a priority by the library employees.

When ordering the citation report please remember that its preparation will take minimum of two weeks. This period may be insufficient if the author does not cooperate in collecting citations from other sources.

Productivity

The scientific productivity of the scientific institutions/scientists is represented in bibliometrics mostly by the number of publications attributed to these entities (persons employed at the institution, scientists). Often, the total number of publications is supplemented by the second indicator, which is the number of articles.

Bibliometryczna analiza porównawcza, Warszawa, Ernst & Young Polska; please note that this publication is entirely based on data from the database ISI Web of Science, which indexes the affiliations of authors. The material for comparisons between higher education institutions that employ the authors and countries are obtained using the address field. Scopus database has a similar functionality - Affiliation Search).

The most complete data to determine the productivity of authors – the CUE employees – can be found in Dorobek database ( statistics)

Journal rankings

The ability to track the most influential journals is provided by the bibliometric online services, websites and experts lists.

About bibliometrics

Bibliometrics = application of statistics in literature research. In particular, bibliometrics deals with the statistical analysis of the literature registered in bibliographic databases.


The origins of bibliometrics can be traced back to 1923 when E.W. Hulme used the term ‘statistical bibliography’ as the combination of 'statistics' (a method of analysis) and 'bibliography' (the subject of analysis). Because of the possible confusing association with the bibliography of publications in the field of statistics, revision of this name was done by A. Pritchard [1969], who also extended the methods used in bibliometrics to include mathematical methods and gave up direct links with the bibliography (the application of mathematics and statistical methods to books and other media of communication). Polish definition of the term respects this, specifying 'bibliometrics' as ‘the quantitative analysis and the study of development trends in literature using statistical methods and based on bibliographies and statistics of publications’. [Source: Słownik terminologiczny informacji naukowej, 1979]. The most simple definition of bibliometrics, which was introduced 90 years ago by Hulme as the use of statistics in the bibliography, needs a reminder that each component is now presenting new quality, and that the common factor in their development is computer technology (greater computational capabilities and the ability to mine data, as well as bibliographies in the form of databases recording data and literature citations).

Bibliometrics is an auxiliary tool in the evaluation procedures for scientific journals and scientific institutions. Bibliometric analysis is becoming an important supplement to the expert analysis.

Institutions applying for a scientific category and the size of grants associated with it, as well as scientists applying for grants, promotions, honors, awards or membership in different organizations are usually required to present:

  • the number of published scientific papers (productivity of the scientific institution/scientist) - quantitative data
  • the citation of scientific papers published by the scientific institution/scientist - quantity and quality data (if the publication brings something important to science it is cited by the authors of other publications).

In many evaluation procedures a mixed approach is applied: for example, the list of publications in scientific journals is complemented by the impact indicators of those journals, or information about their presence in databases indexing the most important scientific journals in their disciplines..

The aim of this bookmarks is to collect in one place the information needed by the CUE employees. For each type of data we present the database in which they are stored, we also remind the requirements of different application procedures.

In addition, we link to the full text of ‘A Code of Good Practice for Scientific Publications’ published by UNESCO.
