Evaluating the Scientific Impact of XSEDE
TimeWednesday, July 252:45pm - 3pm
DescriptionThis paper uses the bibliometrics approach to evaluate the scientific impact of XSEDE. By utilizing publication data from various sources, e.g., ISI Web of Science and Microsoft Academic Graph, we calculate the impact metrics of XSEDE publications and show how they compare with the rest from the same field of study, or the peers from the same journal issue. We explain in detail how we retrieved, cleaned up, and curated millions of related publication entries.
We then explain the metrics we used for evaluation and comparison, and the methods how we calculate them. Detailed analyses results of Field Weighted Citation Impact and the peers comparison will be presented. We also briefly showcase how the same approaches could be used to evaluate publications from a similar organization or institute, to show the generalization and ubiquitous nature of the presented evaluation approach.
