Citation rate of KUE researchers

Information Services Department helps to create citation reports providing information on:

  • number of publications;
  • number of citations;
  • h-index.

Generated citation report is based on the data from the following databases: Web of Science Core Collection, Scopus, BazEkon oraz Google Scholar.

Citation reports are prepared exclusively for employees of the Krakow University of Economics based on publications registered in the DOROBEK database. [Please check the list of your publications and report any missing information].

Bibliometric reports are prepared:

  • in habilitation proceedings and for the conferment of the professor title;
  • for the purposes of a research grant application (National Science Center);
  • for the University authorities.

To submit new citations please use the online form or send it to one of the following e-mail addresses: , or

All interested employees are welcome to contact the Information Services Department in person, by telephone or by email:

Bibliometric indicators

Bibliometrics = application of statistics in literature research. In particular, bibliometrics deals with the statistical analysis of the literature registered in bibliographic databases.

The most popular bibliometric indicators are:

Impact Factor

Indicator of a journal's impact. It is the ratio of the number of citations received in a given year by articles published in that journal during the previous two years to the total number of articles published in that journal during the same period.

IF indicators are available in the Journal Citation Reports database.

Impact Factor for the authors

IF for the authors is calculated by taking into account their publications in journals with IF factor using the following formula:

IF = Ax(n) * IFx(n) + Ay(n) * IFy(n) + Ay(m) * IFy(m) + …

n, m - article's publication year / year for which the journal's IF was calculated

Ax - the number of articles published in the x journal in a given year

Ay - the number of articles published in the y journal in a given year

IFx - IF of the x journal calculated for the given year

IFy - IF of the y journal calculated for the given year

which means that we multiply the IF of a journal from a particular year by the number of articles published in this journal by one author. In case of articles from several journals, we add the multiplication results.


It is a measure reflecting the yearly average number of citations to recent articles published in that journal. It is  based on the citations recorded in the Scopus database. Absolute rankings and percentile ranks are also reported for each journal in a given subject area.

FWCI (Field-Weighted Citation Impact)

Field-weighted Citation Impact (FWCI) is an author-level metric introduced and applied by Scopus SciVal. FWCI equals to the total citations actually received divided by the total citations that would be expected based on the average of the considered field.

Source Normalized Impact per Paper (SNIP)

SNIP measures contextual citation impact by weighting citations based on the total number of citations in a subject field. The impact of a single citation is given higher value in subject areas where citations are less likely, and vice versa.

Scimago Journal Rank (SJR)

SJR indicator is a measure of the prestige of scholarly journals that accounts for both the number of citations received by a journal and the prestige of the journals where the citations come from.
