    • Question on Open Access Funding June 13, 2018
      Hi Everyone - I wanted to see if anyone knows of potential funding sources that could be pursued for a journal special issue. My colleagues and I are wrapping one up and I am interested in making it open access. The title/topic is "Interdisciplinary approaches for uncovering the impacts of

      Except I should have said with every article, not for every article. CiteScore, like IF, is a journal metric. David On Jun 9, 2018, at 8:50 AM, Anthony Watkinson wrote: Sounds plausible Get Outlook for iOS On Sat, Jun 9, 2018 at 7:42 AM -0500, "David Wojick"

      They may have good reason, Anthony, as CiteScore may be little used.

Just one journal accounts for a lot of the CiteScore
    • RE: Journal Metrics June 9, 2018
      I wonder how many researchers actually use or even look at CiteScore. In the work I am doing on early career researchers a few mention SOPUS but none mention CiteScore though Impact Factors are always known and regarded though their defects for individual papers are known Anthony From:

    • new OSI website coming soon June 8, 2018
      Hi Folks, It’s been a while since I’ve bothered you with an email. Hopefully all is going well as your school years approach an end and your “summer” (depending on which side of the planet you live) plans take shape. As you know, OSI is now moving into the “action” phase of its work. The
