Research output: Contribution to specialist publicationArticle

Abstract

An overview is given on the influence of the publication profile on the citations per paper (CPP). For this purpose, an example is presented where the CPP and CPP/WAF yield results that are contradictory to the results of other measures of research impact and productivity. A simulation study of the influence of the publication profile on the CPP is presented and the weakness of the CPP is demonstrated. Further, a new 'weighted CPP,' which is invariant of the publication profile, is introduced.
