Just a nice place to visit

It’s not only the ‘regular’ content that drives my attention. I love to visit unusual places like this very nice museum which is specialized in the intersection of science and art. Enjoy for example the following painting by Robert van Franken at the National Academies Permanent Collection:

Where Do Thoughts Come From, Where Do They Go?

Competitors for the Web of Science?

Dana L. Roth has published an overview of the current alternatives. Services currently offering cited reference searching include (and I give the complete list to have a good look at it):

  1. Chemical Abstracts/SciFinder/SciFinder Scholar
  2. NASA Astrophysics Data System Abstract Service
  3. Amazon.com’s ‘Search Inside this Book’ program
  4. Scopus
  5. Scitation/Spin Web
  6. PROLA (Physical Review Online Archive)
  7. Citation Bridge (US Patents)
  8. US Patent and Trademark Office
  9. Google Scholar
  10. Optics InfoBase
  11. CiteSeer
  12. Science Direct
  13. PsycINFO
  14. IEEE Xplore
  15. Spires HEP
  16. IOP (Institute of Physics)
  17. CrossRef

She concludes her overview:

… Recent developments of ‘competitors’ to the WoS, while interesting and useful for quick links to some citing references, are clearly not a substitute for a comprehensive citation search. WoS currently indexes ~ 8000 journals from the sciences, engineering, social sciences and the humanities, and clearly remains the primary resource for citation searching….

Short impact (JCR) and long impact (JPI) of journals

We are updating the ERIM journalslist at the moment and as part of this procedure we are evaluating different measures of status and prestige of journals. The ERIM list is our main vehicle for focus and quality-policy in our filed of Research in Management at Erasmus University. We update this list every two year.

One of the issues is ofcourse the period we take into account when we look at the journal performance. We can use the JCR reports with the impact factors of ISI. This gives an inpression of the last two years. We could also take a longer time horizon for our classifications of journals. The following example takes a five year and a 20+ year perspective on the performance of journals for the subject category of Business. See how the long term quality journals perform here. It helps me to develop a more balanced view on impact and prestige of journals. If only those data were all free available on the web…
