SCImago Journal and Country Rank

SCImago Journal & Country Rank

The SCImago Journal & Country Rank adalah portal yamg mencakup jurnal-jurnal dan indikator ilmiah Negara yang dikembangkan dari informasi yang terkandung dalam database Scopus (Elsevier B.V.). Indikator-indikator ini dapat digunakan untuk menilai dan menganalisis bidang ilmiah.

Platform ini mengambil namanya dari SCImago Journal Rank (SJR) indicatorpdf, yang dikembangkan oleh SCImago dari alogaritma Google Page Rank™ yang dikenal luas. Indikator ini menunjukkan visibilitas dari jurnal-jurnal yang terdapat dalam database Scopus® dari tahun 1996.

SCImago adalah kelompok riset dari Consejo Superior de Investigaciones Científicas (CSIC), Universitas Granada, Extremadura, Carlos III (Madrid) dan Alcalá de Henares, yang didedikasikan untuk analisis informasi, representasi dan pengambilan keterangan melalui teknik visualisasi.

Selain SJR Portal, SCImago juga mengembangkan Ilmu proyek Atlas, yang bertujuan sebagai pembentukan suatu sistem informasi yang tujuan utamanya adalah untuk mencapai representasi grafis dari Penelitian Ilmu IberoAmerican. Perwakilan tersebut dipahami sebagai kumpulan peta interaktif, yang memungkinkan fungsi navigasi di seluruh ruang semantik yang dibentuk oleh peta.

This paper proposes an indicator of journals’ scientific prestige, the SJR indicator, for ranking
scholarly journals based on citation weighting schemes and eigenvector centrality to be used in complex and heterogeneous citation networks such Scopus. Its computation methodology is described and the results after implementing the indicator over Scopus 2007 dataset are compared to an ad-hoc Journal Impact Factor both generally and inside specific scientific areas. The results showed that SJR indicator and JIF distributions fitted well to a power law distribution and that both metrics were strongly correlated, although there were also major changes in rank. There was an observable general trend that  might indicate that SJR indicator values decreased certain JIF values whose citedeness was greater than would correspond to their scientific influence.  Keywords SJR indicator, academic journals, journal prestige, eigenvector centrality, citation networks

Scimago Institution Ranking SIR 2011

Scimago Institution Ranking SIR 2011


The current report involves the third release of our annual series Scimago Institutions Rankings World Reports, that based on quantitative data of citation and publication shows bibliometric indicators that unveil some of the main dimensions of research performance of worldwide research-devoted institutions. As in former editions, SIR World Report 2011 aims at becoming an evaluation framework of research performance to Worldwide Research Organizations.

The report shows six indicators that will help users evaluate the scientific impact, thematic
specialization, output size and international collaboration networks of the institutions.
The period analyzed in the current edition covers 2005-09. The tables include institutions having published at least 100 scientific documents of any type, that is, articles, reviews, short reviews, letters, conference papers, etc., during the year 2009 as collected by worldwide leader scientific database Scopus by Elsevier. The report encompasses Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) as well as other research-focused organizations from different sizes, with different missions and from countries in the five continents. Institutions are grouped into five Institutional Sectors: Higher Education, Health System, Government Agencies, Corporations and Others.

To elaborate this report, we carry out the challenging task of identifying and disambiguating all the institutions through an overwhelming number of scientific articles, reviews and conference papers contained in Scopus. The task, which is carried out by a mix of computer and human means, comprises the identification and gathering of institution’s affiliation variants under a unique identifiable form as well as the classification into institutional sectors.
SIR World Reports 2011 is the most comprehensive ranking of Worldwide Research Institutions.

Following the goal of embracing every institution around the world with significative scientific
output, the ranking now includes 3,042 institutions that together are responsible for more than 80% of worldwide scientific output during the term 2005-09 as indexed in Elsevier’s Scopus database.

The intended target audience of SIR World Report 2011 is formed by policymakers, research
managers, researchers, media and general public interested in finding out about research
performance of worldwide Institutions.
