Doctoral graduate research performance (DRP) is recognized as one of the most critical indices for evaluation of the success of doctoral education. Doctoral graduates with high research performance directly reflect a higher ability in academic research and academic achievement. Consequently, identifying which factors influence DRP is potentially of great value. This topic is also challenging because of difficulties in identifying the impact factors on research performance and the feasibility of the relative data collection. This paper first examines the relationships between the indicators and DRP. After a review of previous literature, the focus is on the doctoral graduates' individual factors, advisor factors and learning performance. Data is collected from graduated doctors from the Science Schools of University of Science and Technology of China (USTC). Contrary to expectations, our findings indicate that, based on the Chinese context, learning performance does not appea!
 r to be strongly associated with research performance. Individual factors (status of academic origin) do have significant effect on DRP. The advisor factors (including academic status, academic experience and allocation of energy) show a relatively strong association with DRP, in terms of both the number of publications and the *impact factor* of Science Citation Index (SCI) cited journals.

Background. h-index is useful for quantifying scholarly activity in medicine, but this statistic has not been extensively applied as a measure of productivity in anaesthesia. We conducted a bibliometric analysis of h-index in editorial board members and tested the hypothesis that editorial board members of anaesthesia journals with higher impact factors (IFs) have higher h-indices.
Methods. Ten of 19 journals with 2009 IF>1 were randomly chosen from Journal Citation Reports (R). Board members were identified using each journal's website. Publications, citations, citations per publication, and h-index for each member were obtained using Scopus (R).
Results. Four hundred and twenty-three individuals filled 481 anaesthesia editorial board positions. The median h-index of all editorial board members was 14. Board members published 75 papers (median) with 1006 citations and 13 citations per publication. Members serving on journals with IF greater than median had significantly (P<0.05; Wilcoxon's rank-sum test) greater median h-index, citations, and citations per publication than those at journals with IF less than median. A significant correlation between the median h-index of a journal's editorial board members and its IF (h-index 3.01xIF+6.85; r(2)=0.452; P=0.033) was observed for the 10 journals examined. Board members of subspeciality-specific journals had bibliometric indices that were less than those at general journals. The h-index was greater in individuals serving more than one journal. European editorial board members had higher h-index values than their American colleagues.
Conclusions. The results suggest that editorial board members of anaesthesia journals with higher IFs have higher h-indices.

The European mosaic of socio-cultural, economic and legal realities is reflected in forensic and legal medicine, in which a great variety of operational modes of forensic medical services, organisational systems, structures, functional competences and scientific research strategies can be observed. The present work analyses the European bio-medicolegal scientific output of the last 5.5 years (exact time window, January 1, 2005-June 1, 2010), categorising papers by nationality of the corresponding author and forensic sub-discipline in question, in order to identify the peculiarities of national sub-specialised competences and to build up international research projects. This country-based bibliometric analysis, based on the number of articles and the *impact factor* produced by each European country, also considering its economic profile (gross domestic product and per capita gross domestic product), highlights the prevailing productive role of Western and Southern Europe (Ge!
 rmany, Great Britain, Italy, Switzerland, Spain and France). Categorising scientific output by forensic sub-discipline and branch, significant in terms of *impact factor* are contributions from Germany (coming first in Pathology, Toxicology, Genetics, Anthropology and Biological Criminalistics), Great Britain (first in Clinical Forensic Medicine, Malpractice and Invalidity-Social Insurance), Switzerland (first in Criminology), Italy (second in Toxicology, Anthropology and Invalidity-Social Insurance), The Netherlands (third in Clinical Forensic Medicine and Medical Law and Ethics), Spain (third in Genetics, Criminalistics and Invalidity-Social Insurance) and France (third in Toxicology and Malpractice). Interestingly, several countries with low gross domestic product, such as Poland, Turkey and other Eastern European nations, show notable scientific production in specific sub-disciplines such as Pathology, Toxicology and Forensic Genetics, suggesting that fruitful internati!
 onal cooperation could be planned and be of interest to fundin!
 g source
s within the European Community, also taking into account funds reserved for depressed areas undergoing development.

Objective: To evaluate the distribution and scope of surgical research in Australia relating to malignant diseases in the field of surgery.
Method: Surgical publications relating to adult malignant diseases originating from Australia were identified from a systematic literature examination using PubMed during a 12-year period between 1998 and 2009. The origin of the article, journal *impact factor* (IF), type of research and its subspecialty discipline were recorded.
Results: Over a 12-year period, 1,132 papers were published in various journals at a median annual rate of 98 papers. Four hundred eighty-five (43%) papers arose from institutions in New South Wales, 225 (20%) papers from Victoria, 150 (13%) papers from South Australia, 106 (9%) papers from Western Australia, and 77 (7%) papers from Queensland. The mean IF was 3.22 (SD = 2.5). Papers were most commonly published in journals including the ANZ Journal of Surgery (n = 237, 21%), Annals of Surgical Oncology (n = 50, 4%), British Journal of Surgery (n = 38, 3%), and Diseases of the Colon and Rectum (n = 36, 3%). The mean IF of papers published per year ranged from 2.55 to 3.87. The most number of papers were published in the fields of urological oncology (n = 103, 9%), hepatopancreaticobiliary oncology (n = 144, 13%), breast oncology (n = 174, 15%), and colorectal oncology (n = 222, 20%).
Conclusion: Bibliometric findings of this review suggest that there is a growth in high scientific research publications in the field of surgical oncology in Australia, indicating an interest in this discipline. This research trend may impact on the national research strategy for clinical cancer control. J. Surg. Oncol. 2011;104:216-219. (C) 2011 Wiley-Liss, Inc.

Coauthorship links actors at the micro-level of scientists. Through electronic databases we now have enough information to compare entire research disciplines over time. We compare the complete longitudinal coauthorship networks for four research disciplines (biotechnology, mathematics, physics and sociology) for 1986-2005. We examined complete bibliographies of all researchers registered at the national Slovene Research Agency. Known hypotheses were confirmed as were three new hypotheses. There were different coauthoring cultures. However, these cultures changed over time in Slovenia. The number of coauthored publications grew much faster than solo authored productions, especially after independence in 1991 and the integration of Slovenian science into broader EU systems. Trajectories of types of coauthorship differed across the disciplines. Using blockmodeling, we show how coauthorship structures change in all disciplines. The most frequent form was a core-periphery struct!
 ure with multiple simple cores, a periphery and a semi-periphery. The next most frequent form had this structure but with bridging cores. Bridging cores consolidate the center of a discipline by giving it greater coherence. These consolidated structures appeared at different times in different disciplines, appearing earliest in physics and latest in biotechnology. In 2005, biotechnology had the most consolidated center followed by physics and sociology. All coauthorship networks expanded over time. By far, new recruits went into either the semi-periphery or the periphery in all fields. Two 'lab' fields, biotechnology and physics, have larger semi-peripheries than peripheries. The reverse holds for mathematics and sociology, two 'office' disciplines. Institutional affiliations and shared interests all impact the structure of collaboration in subtle ways.

Objectives: Emergency medicine (EM) is a young but rapidly growing field. An evaluation of academic performance and the growing impact of EM journals would help to elucidate the increase in the number of EM scientific studies. The authors used the Journal Citation Reports (JCR) database to investigate the scientific achievements of EM journals in the past 10 years.
Methods: This was a literature review study. All data were collected from the JCR database. Journals listed in the EM category from 2000 to 2009 were included. Eleven categories that were considered most closely related to EM by a consensus of the authors were chosen for comparison, including cardiac and cardiovascular systems, clinical neurology, critical care medicine, gastroenterology and hepatology, infectious diseases, general and internal medicine, pediatrics, respiratory system, surgery, toxicology, and urology and nephrology. Data on journals in the EM category were collected, including journal title, language, journal country or territory, *impact factor* for each year, total number of EM journals for each year, and the EM category aggregate *impact factor* (available from 2003 to 2009). The variables in the comparison group included the number of journals in each of the 11 clinical medicine categories from 2000 to 2009 and the aggregate impact factors for 2003 to 2!
 009. The category aggregate *impact factor* and journal *impact factor* were adopted as representative of category and journal academic performance. Linear regression was used to assess the trend of aggregate *impact factor* and journal *impact factor*. The slope (beta) of the linear regression was used to represent the evolution of performance. The relationship between the 2000 EM journal *impact factor* and the *impact factor* trend of EM journals between 2000 and 2009 was measured by Pearson correlation coefficient to evaluate the evolution difference between journals with different initial impact factors.
Results: In 2000, all 12 EM journals were published in the United States or Europe, and the language of all was English. In 2009, 10% (2/19) of the journals originated from outside North America and Europe, and 16% (3/19) were non-English-language journals. The number of EM journals increased 58% from 2000 to 2009, twice the increase in the total number of JCR-listed journals, and rank first in the rate of journal number increase among categories of clinical medicine. The *impact factor* of all EM journals showed an increasingly positive trend since 2000. The *impact factor* increased faster for high *impact factor* EM journals than for low-*impact-factor* EM journals.
Conclusions: An increasing number of international EM journals have appeared over the past 10 years. Every EM journal exhibited a positive *impact factor* trend, but the gap between EM journals' impact factors has widened in the past 10 years.

Scholars, practitioners, and students in operations research and management science (OR/MS) often hesitate to use traditional approaches to evaluate journal quality because of the inconsistency of these approaches to perceptions and other associated biases. We introduce an alternative approach, which is based on Google's PageRank, to evaluate 31 OR/MS journals. This approach enhances the *impact factor* method by considering both citation quantity and quality. When we apply our method to OR/MS journals, the results match survey opinions and significantly outperform rankings based on impact factors. In addition, we provide an extensive discussion of other methods that have been used to assess journal quality. Compared to these methods, our method is better able to discern quality differences for journals that are perceived to be of relatively higher quality. Most importantly, we integrate our method into a Web-based journal-ranking system.
