Clarivate Introduces a New Report on Managing Academic Publication Credit

Clarivate’s Institute for Scientific Information published a report, “Making It Count: Research Credit Management in a Collaborative World” (registration required), which puts forth “a new method for analyzing the credit authors of academic papers receive via citations.” The press release notes, “Credit for publishing academic research often affects employment, promotion and funding at the individual level, as well as funding and decision making for academic research institutions and nations. … [T]he need for informed, data-driven analysis on credit that works across research disciplines and regions is essential. However, existing methods for analyzing credit can become distorted by exceptionally high author counts.”

The report suggests using a new indicator, called Collaborative CNCI (Collab-CNCI), which “complements the already existing Category Normalized Citation Impact indicator. … But [with Collab-CNCI,] the accumulated citation count for each paper is normalized against other papers of the same publication year, the same subject category, the same document type and—critically—the same collaboration type.”

For more information, read the press release.
