Calculating citation count indicators for individual files

Download Webometric Analyst to the desktop if you do not already have it.

When you start it, you might get a warning from Windows or a virus scanner but please ignore this. Start Webometric Analyst, and close the start-up wizard, to get to the main interface.

Within the menu bar at the top there is a Reports menu. Select Calculate MNLCS, gMNCS and NPC for a set of any tab-delimited files (one or more files, each processed separately) from the Reports menu. When asked if you have more than one file, click Yes. From the dialog box that appears next, select the citation counts folder containing the WoS files and click OK.  Now you will be asked to enter the number of the column containing the indicator data. For this, the citation count column is needed. Within WoS this is called TC (Times Cited) and is normally the 43rd column. Check that column number 43 in the dialog box is TC, enter 43 in the textbox and click OK. The report should now be created and saved to a file in the same folder called Report.txt. A second file called AllData.txt should also be created but this isn’t needed now. The report is copied below, with the table part at the end formatted as a table via Excel for ease of reading here. This table contains the same information as in the list above it but in a more convenient format for copying to spreadsheets.

The report contains the arithmetic and geometric means of the citation counts in each file, as well as the arithmetic mean of the log-transformed citation counts and the proportion of articles with at least one citation. When possible, 95% confidence intervals are also given.
