The webinars of this series are conducted by Irina Tikhonkova, Ph.D.

1. Basic capabilities of Web of Science Core Collection for scientific activities

This webinar will be useful for those who are just starting to get acquainted with the possibilities of Web of Science. Why this resource is useful for a scientist, teacher, administrator. How to register your profile and be able to use the Web of Science outside the organization. In real time, we will find and analyze scientific literature on a specific topic using truncation symbols, replacements, search operators, related records. We will determine which journals have the most publications on this topic, which works are most in demand, which organizations and scientists are successfully working on this topic, and which funds have funded similar research. Let us analyze the basic scientometric indicators of the obtained sample, including the citation rate, the average citation rate of the publication, the Hirsch index, and the impact factor. Let’s save the found information in a convenient format. We will share the information we have found with our colleagues and set up notifications about the arrival of new works. Consider the new features that appeared at the end of May.

2. The world of scientific journals

The publication of research results is the culmination of scientific activity, allows you to familiarize colleagues with the data obtained and get their assessment, at the same time, articles in a predatory journal will negatively affect the career. The first scientific journals appeared in 1665. At the webinar, we will look at the evolution of magazines, their formats and business models; how journals are selected in the Web of Science; what is the impact factor, what modifications are there, why a quartile is needed, why not all journals have them; how, by whom and why “other impact factors” are “calculated”; what are the signs of a good magazine; what types of predatory magazines are there how not to fall prey to them? We will learn how to select and evaluate journals in PM from free publications using: Web of Science Core Collection, Manuscript Matcher (Master Journal List), Journal Citation Reports.

3. Author profiles: features and functions

Each scientist periodically needs to demonstrate his results, for example, at regular attestations or when submitting requests for funding, and sometimes it becomes necessary to search and analyze the achievements of his colleagues. At the same time, difficulties may arise with the identification and correct assessment of the scientist’s work, the reasons for this may be transliteration variations, a common surname or its change. The webinar will consider: capabilities, functions, creation / adjustment, advantages and disadvantages of the main authoring profiles Publons, Orcid, ResearchGate, Google Scholar. How to present your work, is it possible to post the full texts of your articles, how to increase the citation rate of publications, why is my work not visible in the organization’s profile, and why is the Hirsch index different in different databases? About publications, citations, impact factors, journal quartiles and the new beamplot in the scientist’s profile in the new Web of Science interface.

InCites is an analytical framework that allows you to compare and visualize citation data from the Web of Science Core Collection database. InCites also allows you to operate with dozens of additional bibliometric indicators, many of which allow you to compare the citations of publications made in different subject areas. All this allows us to compare authors, organizations and entire countries, analyze the strengths in our research, and also find emerging research trends. At the webinar, we will talk about how the InCites interface works and we will analyze a number of the most interesting examples of the analysis of organizations, countries, individual authors, as well as the search for breakthrough scientific topics.                                                    - June 22, Tuesday 10:00 (Moscow time)
