Recent research has shown that simple graphical representations of research performance can be obtained using two-dimensional maps based on impact (i) and citations (C).

  • 影響與引文相乘,得到學術能量(E)。
    The product of impact and citations leads to an energy term (E).
  • 以學術能量作為第三向量的座標,可以得到一三維空間的地圖。
    Indeed, using E as the third coordinate, three-dimensional landscape maps can be prepared.
  • 本文中,除了以傳統的影響指數與引文數以外,採用了論文影響力(Article Influenece)與 Eigenfactor。
    In this paper, instead of using the traditional impact factor and total citations received for journal evaluation, Article Influence and Eigenfactor are used as substitutes.
  • 論文影響力(Article Influenece)是品質量測的指標,Eigenfactor 是數量的指標。而兩者的乘積類似於學術能量。
    Article Influence becomes a measure of quality (i.e. a proxy for impact factor) and Eigenfactor is a proxy for size/quantity (like citations) and taken together, the product is an energy-like term.
  • 用來評估期刊的影響與威望。
    This can be used to measure the influence/prestige of a journal.
  • 提出 p-factor, 作為評估 期刊威望或卓越性 的單位,與 h-index 等效。
    It is also possible to propose a p-factor (where p = E1/3) as an alternative measure of the prestige or prominence of a journal which plays the equivalent role of the h-index.
