How to win citations and rise up the university rankings

Postby mgcrisp » Tue Nov 11, 2014 6:56 pm

In a recent article in the University World News, Richard Holmes points out some of the anomalous rankings in the Times Higher Education and explains how the bibliometric methodology for citation metrics may be flawed for the purpose of rankings.

Holmes suggests that a university involved in 'multi-collaborator mega-cited' projects will see an improvement in rankings, to a point...

There are also some interesting criticisms of the Thomson Reuter products such as InCites.

Hi,
I am new here and want to know about the Thomson Reuter products! I have just checked them online and they moved me to the site ideal ranking for bar stools. I read few of their articles about ranking, finance and home insurance but still want to know more and experiences of the people!
