Scientometrics views science as an information process characterized by numerous measurable indices. Currently, various databases of scientific publications host a multitude of statistical indices employed to assess the efficacy of individual researchers, scientific publication, and research institutions.
The combination of outcomes from scientometric analysis and rigorous qualitative assessment can form the foundation for evaluating the potential, credibility, and impact of scientists, teams, publications, research directions, and more.
All registered users of the KPI Library are eligible for individual consultations, free of charge, at the Center for Education and Research Support (KPI Library, 4th floor, room 4.4). The consultants will assist in determining authors’ scientific metrics (such as citation index and Hirsch index) using the scientometric platforms Scopus and Web of Science.

According to this Regulation, authors/co-authors of publications indexed in Scopus and/or WoS, who were employees of Igor Sikorsky Kyiv Polytechnic Institute at the time of a manuscript submission, are eligible for the award.
The award for the publication will only be granted under the condition that the author’s/co-author’s affiliation with the University is correctly indicated in the metadata of the publication: for articles in Ukrainian – Національний технічний університет України «Київський політехнічний інститут імені Ігоря Сікорського» or КПІ ім. Ігоря Сікорського, and for articles in English – National Technical University of Ukraine “Igor Sikorsky Kyiv Polytechnic Institute” or Igor Sikorsky Kyiv Polytechnic Institute.
For matters concerning the inclusion of publications in award lists, determination of journal quartiles, and other related issues, please reach out to the Center for Information Support of Education and Research (KPI Library, 4th floor, room 4.4).

New publications by researchers in Scopus and Web of Science
Information about journals iscrucial when deciding where to publish your research findings. We recommend platforms and the list of indices that can help you find journals to study research outcomes and to publish your results.
Scientometric indices that help to evaluate journals:
Jornal impact factor is the correlation of average citation number of the journal’s articles during the current year to the overall number of articles published in this journal during the two preceding years.
CiteScore calculates the average number of citations received in 4 calendar years to 5 peer-reviewed document types (research articles, review articles, conference proceedings, data papers, and book chapters) published in a journal in the same four years. .
SJR (SCImago Journal Rank) is a comprehensive index that considers the citation of a journal’s articles, the reputation of the journals citing it, and the thematic relationships between the publications.
Quartile refers to a category assigned to scientific journals that indicates their level of citation. Based on ranking results, each journal is placed into one of four quartiles:
Q1 – journals with the highest citation indexes (75–99%);
Q2 – journals with citation levels ranging from the middle to the highest (50–74%);
Q3 – journals with citation levels ranging from the middle to the lowest (25–49%);
Q4 – journals with the lowest citation levels (0–24%).
SNIP (Source Normalized Impact per Paper) is a contextual index that considers the probability of citation within a specific subject area. It calculates the ratio of a journal’s potential for overall citations to its potential for citations within its specific subject area.
Scimago Journal & Country Rank measures the prestige of citations received by a journal. It weights the value of a citation depending on the field, quality and reputation of the journal that the citation comes from, so that “all citations are not equal.” SJR also takes differences in the behavior of academics in different disciplines into account and can be used to compare journals in different fields..
