Informatik-Oberseminar: Citing attractive papers: a model for citation networks

Montag, 10.07.2017, 16.15 Uhr

Ort: 4017 (Seminarraum i1)

Referent: Alessandro Garavaglia (TU Eindhoven)


The Journal Impact Factor and the h-index are probably the most famous bibliometrics indicators used to evaluate scientific quality of papers and research groups. Both of them are based on citations counting, ignoring that papers and/or scientists are part of large networks, on which it is possible to define different metrics, based not only on the degree of nodes. In this talk, I will focus on citation networks as directed graphs, where nodes are papers and direct edges are citations from a paper to another. I will identify some main characteristics of such networks using real data from Web of Science, and I will define a basic random tree model that can qualitatively replicate this data.
