In week 4, we introduce the primary databases used in most bibliometric analyses and provide hands-on training on using those databases for bibliometrics.
Mongeon P, Paul-Hus A. 2016. The journal coverage of Web of Science and Scopus: A comparative analysis. Scientometrics. 106(1):213-228. doi:10.1007/s11192-015-1765-5
Franceschini F, Maisano D, Mastrogiacomo L. 2016. Empirical analysis and classification of database errors in Scopus and Web of Science. J Informetrics. 10(4):933-953. doi:10.1016/j.joi.2016.07.003
Find publications from NIBIB (or another organization) in Web of Science or Scopus. Remove meeting abstracts from the results. Save the results as an .isi (for Web of Science) or .csv (for Scopus) file. Based on that data, make some charts about the number of publications per year, journal, subject category, and document type.
