ICT4D Journal Ranking Table

Postby mgcrisp » Fri Aug 21, 2015 11:34 am

So this is a league table of impact, based mainly on the average number of citations per paper, and calculated by taking every paper for the given year published in a journal and seeing how many citations for that paper (if any) are shown in Google Scholar, then averaging the total. The citation figure is amended to take account of the length of time since publication, and of both the proportion of papers that have no citations, and the proportion of papers that aren’t even listed on Google Scholar. Because not all impact is accounted for by citation, open access journals – which will attract many more readers – are given an additional weighting of 1.5. These calculations were undertaken for both 2005 and 2008 for the journals that go back that far, and an average of the two scores taken.
