- 方法：兩兩比較各指數的相關性，六種可能比較組合：Spearman's rho.
- The number of journals that could be matched within each pair of indices ranged from 1,857 to 6,508.
- Paired ratings for all journals showed strong to very strong correlations, with Spearman’s rho values ranging from 0.61 to 0.89, all p\0.001. Identifiable errors were more common among scores for journals that had very discordant ranks on a pair of indices.
