An iCE map approach to evaluate performance and efficiency of scientific production of countries / Prathap (2010)
Citation - Prathap, G. (2010). An iCE map approach to evaluate performance and efficiency of scientific production of countries. Scientometrics, 85(1), 185-191.
- An indicator called the performance index (p-index) which can effectively combine size and quality of scientific papers, mocking what the h-index could do, emerges from an energy like term E = iC, where i is a measure of quality, expressed as the ratio of citations C to papers published P.
- In this paper, we demonstrate how this energy paradigm can be used for bibliometric research assessment.
- The energy assessment technique is demonstrated by applying it to the research assessment of all the countries listed in Essential Science Indicators.
- Partitioning is easily done by using contour lines on the twodimensional iCE (impact–Citations–Energy) map.
