About the REDIB Ranking
The REDIB Ranking analyses the citations of indexed articles to indexed articles, and then adds these article-to-article citations for each journal.
The REDIB Ranking goes much further than a simple calculation of the citations made in the given period and dividing this figure by the number of articles. Rather, it contextualises the citations in each subject area, taking into account certain factors (number of publications, expected average impact, etc.) The REDIB Ranking differs from other rankings of similar document bodies in the sense that it is the only one that calculates expected citations or which compares its journals with the rest of the world, outside its own corpus.
The ranking does not analyse the publications as a whole. Rather, the data provided about each of the journals are obtained by aggregating the data gathered through analysing each of the articles and then contextualising them, as mentioned above.
