Deputy Director of the Lobachevsky Library Yuliya Leksina reminded, «It’s important to remember that the number of papers for 2015 will rise until April – May. Also, it’s not very correct to compare citations for different years; obviously, the papers from a year and more ago have more citations than fresh ones».
Top Journal Percentiles SJR for authors from KFU showed a staggering rise from 5% to 25%.
Among the most popular publications are those in biomedicine, genetics and molecular biology, physics and astronomy, chemistry, agriculture, chemical technology.
