Scientometrics considers science as an information process characterized by many measurable indexes. Today, in various databases of scientific publications, there are many statistical indexes that are used to evaluate the effectiveness of an individual scientist, scientific publication, and scientific institution.
The complex of the results of scientometric analysis and professional qualitative examination can become the basis for evaluating the prospect, authority, influence of the scientist, team, publication, research direction, etc.
All registered users of the KPI Library can receive individual free of charge consultations at the Center for Education and Research Support (KPI Library, 4th floor, room 4.4). The consultants will help to determine authors’ scientific indicators (citation index and Hirsch index) according to scientometric platforms Scopus and Web of Science.

CiteScore – average citation number, received during the year by all the articles, published in that journal for the last three years.

Q3 – middle to lowest citation level (from 75% to the first of 50 %);
Q4 – the lowest in the index (lower 25%).
SNIP (Source Normalized Impact per Paper) – contextual index in which the probability of citation certain subject area is taken into consideration: general potential of being cited is divided by the potential of being cited in its scientific subject area.
