How it the analysis performed?

Introduction of the scientometric portal at Semmelweis University

What is the difference between Scientometrics.org and Tudomanymetria.com?

Tudomanymetria.com uses data as of January 2022 and Scientometrics.org uses the latest available data. The main difference is omitting papers reaching high impact rank in 2022 in the Tudomanymetria.com site.

Why are my 2022 papers not listed?

Scientometrics.org uses complete calendar years, as it is not possible to make a ranking using partial timeframes (e.g. months). Papers published in 2022 will be included after January 2023.

What is the option for researcher age correction useful for?

Scientific performance might be influenced by factors which take up the researcher's time. User suggested examples include: 1) maternity leave, 2) university teaching work, 3) early publications during graduate studies, 4) military service, 5) prolonged illness, 6) career-break, 7) switchover between disciplines, and others. We advise to use this option with caution as none of these factors is available for the other researchers. When adjusting for all possible factors, each researcher would be assigned to a one-man cluster making objective comparison impossible.
