Effects and their influence on citations
An effect as it relates to citationanalysis is any influencing factor that may change the number of citations an entity such as an author, workgroup, institution, or publication receives. The most well
The foundation of the IS constructing method is the citation and co-citationanalysis. The citationanalysis method was pioneered by Garfield et al. (Garfield et al. 1964 ). It is one of the informatics methods developed to analyze the documents
The h-index has received an enormous attention for being an indicator that measures the quality of researchers and organizations. We investigate to what degree authors can inflate their h-index through strategic self-citations with the help of a simulation. We extended Burrell's publication model with a procedure for placing self-citations, following three different strategies: random self-citation, recent self-citations and h-manipulating self-citations. The results show that authors can considerably inflate their h-index through self-citations. We propose the q-index as an indicator for how strategically an author has placed self-citations, and which serves as a tool to detect possible manipulation of the h-index. The results also show that the best strategy for an high h-index is publishing papers that are highly cited by others. The productivity has also a positive effect on the h-index.

In this study an attempt is made to establish new bibliometric indicators for the assessment of research in the Humanities.
Data from a Dutch Faculty of Humanities was used to provide the investigation a sound empirical basis. For several reasons
(particularly related to coverage) the standard citation indicators, developed for the sciences, are unsatisfactory. Target
expanded citation analysis and the use of oeuvre (lifetime) citation data, as well as the addition of library holdings and
productivity indicators enable a more representative and fair assessment. Given the skew distribution of population data,
individual rankings can best be determined based on log transformed data. For group rankings this is less urgent because of
the central limit theorem. Lifetime citation data is corrected for professional age by means of exponential regression.
studies utilize bibliometric techniques, with an emphasis on citationanalysis. The argument is that if science is created through scholarly writing, then we can identify documents as the carriers of disciplinary understanding and structure and see
