Program for calculating citations

Index Copernicus is one of the few entities in the world that identifies connections between object and, ipso facto, automaticaly calculates citations of journals registered in ICI World of Journals database. In 2016, for the first time in the history of national scientometrics and bibliometrics, we carried out a complex project aimed at calculating citations of publications used in scientific journals between 2010 and 2015. On the basis of attachement bibliography provided by registered journals, citations for years 2010-2017 were identified. Subsequent data are constantly updated. Based on data gathered in the ICI World of Journals database, we determined the number of citations for over 14 thousand scientific journals. Thus, over 6 million items in attachment bibliographies were isolated. Every registered Editorial office has access to detailed reports on citations that contains information on, for example articles that cite a given journal, journals that most frequently cite, or the most frequently cited publication years. Currently, development works of improving tools are underway and citations rates have not been included in the ICI Journals Master List evaluation methodology yet.
