Dear colleagues,

I would like to draw your attention to a special section of Journal of Informetrics on the topic of size-independent indicators in citation analysis. The special section is available at http://www.sciencedirect.com/science/journal/17511577/10/2. It presents a debate about the validity of commonly used scientometric indicators for assessing the scientific performance of research groups, institutions, etc.

An introduction into the debate is provided in the following blog post: https://www.cwts.nl/blog?article=n-q2w274.

Best regards,

Ludo Waltman
