  2. Scholarly Communication Tools 2 Kramer, Bianca; Bosman, Jeroen (2015): 101

    Innovations in Scholarly Communication - the Changing Research Workflow. https://doi.org/10.6084/m9.figshare.1286826.v1
  3. CSIndexbr is a experimental scholarly communication tool, with two goals:

    - Discovery e.g. What are the "best" Brazilian papers in my area? - Assessment e.g. What are the "best" Brazilian CS depts in my area? 3
  4. Index of recent papers published by Brazilian CS professors in

    selected conferences and journals in the last five years (2014-today) - Transparent - Open - but "unofficial" 4
  5. Primary data source: DBLP (dblp.org) - High-quality metadata about CS

    papers - Covers all relevant CS venues - Open-license - Very reliable API 5
  6. Some numbers 6

  7. 3.2K users, 31K pageviews (in one year) 7

  8. Statistics Page (Fev, 2019) https://csindexbr.org/statistics.html 8

  9. Key decision: organization by research areas 9

  10. Research Areas (21) 10

  11. Brazilian CS Professors - 1,070 professors - 799 with indexed

    papers 11
  12. If you miss a name (or for any other question):

    https://goo.gl/forms/kz3F1fZIKtubWYiu1 or from csindexbr.org 12
  13. Key contribution: Curated dataset of conferences and journals 13

  14. Conferences - 15 conferences / area (max) - Only full,

    main-track papers (10 pages) - short, tool, workshop etc papers are not indexed - Criteria: - submitted > 100 papers - acceptance < 30% - h5-index > 20 14
  15. Exceptions: - Many areas: full papers < 10 pages -

    Computer Networks: 18 confs - Algorithms & Complexity: accept. ~ 40% - etc 15
  16. Exceptions are highlighted in yellow in Stats (C) 16

  17. Top-Conferences (⭐) - 3 top-conferences / area (max) - submitted

    > 180 papers - h5-index > 30 17
  18. Journals - 15 journals / area (max) - Criteria: -

    Indexed by JCR - h5-index > 25 18
  19. Top-Journals - 3 top-journals / area (max) - Criteria: -

    ACM Transactions or IEEE Transactions (or similar) 19
  20. Goal 1: Discovery 20

  21. Papers / Conference [always in the last 5 yrs] 21

  22. Papers / Journal 22

  23. Papers (Conferences & Journals) 23

  24. Professors with Papers (in a Research Area) 24

  25. Author Pages 25

  26. Goal 2: Assessment 26

  27. Department Rankings - 1.0: paper in top-conference or top-journal -

    0.40: paper in journals - 0.33: paper in - conference - magazines - journals with short papers - mega-journals - journals with normalized-h5-index < 0.2 27
  28. Dept Rankings: per Research Area 28

  29. More details: FAQ https://csindexbr.org/faq.html 29

  30. Beyond rankings: a repository for scientometrics studies on Brazilian scientific

    production in CS 30
  31. Source code and data is public on GitHub https://github.com/aserg-ufmg/CSIndex 31

  32. Documentation (in progress) https://github.com/aserg-ufmg/CSIndex 32

  33. First CSIndexbr-based study: Brazilian Workshop on Software Visualization, Evolution and

    Maintenance, 2018 33
  34. Research Topics 34

  35. This paper (workshop, portuguese) is a good opportunity for remembering

    that not at CSIndexbr ≠ "irrelevant" 35
  36. Another Example: most common words in paper's titles (5-min analysis)

    36
  37. Other features: arXiv links & citations 37

  38. Links to arXiv preprints (if available) 38

  39. Only 5% of papers have preprints on arXiv 39

  40. arXiv popularity (worldwide): 23% 40 Popularity of arXiv.org within Computer

    Science. Charles Sutton and Linan Gong, https://arxiv.org/pdf/1710.05225.pdf
  41. Another feature: citations 41

  42. CrossRef Citations - Crossref is an official DOI registration agency

    - They maintain a database of citations - used by ACM DL, IEEE DL, Dimensions etc - Has a public API (unlike Google Scholar) 42
  43. Future Work 43

  44. Future Work 1. Internal improvements, scripts, refactorings etc 2. Update

    conferences and journals statistics (2018) 3. Extend data collection to more than 5 years 4. Integration with CNPq: link to Lattes 5. (?) "Global" depts ranking (all areas) 6. (?) Adjust scores by number of authors 7. Other countries 44
  45. Quiz [para incentivar acesso ao sistema] 45 1. Em qual

    área o DCC tem mais pesquisadores? 2. Em qual área o DCC tem menos pesquisadores? 3. Qual o paper do DCC tem mais citações? 4. Qual o journal aceita o maior número de papers BR? 5. Em qual área o BR tem mais pesquisadores? 6. Qual o dept BR tem mais pesquisadores? 7. Qual o paper BR tem mais citações? 8. Qual a participação BR nos papers da área X?
