Effect of Number of Versions on Receiving High Citations
AbstractNowadays, the h-index is an index that attempts to measure both the
productivity and impact of the published work of a scientist or scholar.
The index is based upon the set of the scientist's most cited papers and
the number of citations that they have received in other publications.
Besides, the most commonly used measure of journal quality is Impact
Factor. This is a number which attempts to measure the impact of a
journal in terms of the average number of citations to recent articles
published in the journal. So, receiving more citation is very important
for authors and journals to get high h-index and impact factor. In this
paper, we tried to analyses the effect of the number of available
version from the web on receive more citations. We analyzed 10162 papers
which are published in Scopus database in year 2010. Then we developed a
software to collect the number of citations and versions of each paper
from Google Scholar automatically.
