    Abstract: 論文被引用次數常被用為評估學術研究成果的質,對學術界的重要性不可言喻,為求公允,引用次數的運算宜力求正確,然而,由於提供查詢論文被引用次數之引文索引、索引摘要或網路搜尋引擎等引用資訊系統,系統發展背景不同,其製作程序與資料處理原則相異,使得各篇論文被引用次數在不同系統之檢索結果因而產生差異。



    Citedness score is a widely accepted metric for the quality of scholarly literatures, therefore, the forming calculation and corresponsive consequence of citation counts becomes of importance for academic researchers, especially for the research assessment. However, the distinction of citedness score exists in heterogeneous information systems resulted from considerations for system construction and development, such as purpose, procedure and policy of data processing, and that would bring various meanings and impacts for citedness score.

    This paper aims to examine the distinctive factors and results on calculation of citedness score of scholarly literatures between SCIE and Scopus by adoption of comparison as research methodology. In this empirical study, we selected 372 research papers from research grant publications of the College of Engineering at Tamkang University, and 251 engineering journals published in Taiwan and the Mainland China as research subject to test the citation counts from SCIE and Scopus simultaneously. As a consequence, one may generalize that four factors heavily impacts on the different citedness scores between SCIE and Scopus and factors are: coverage of collected data, integrity of cited references, quality of citation record and citation pointer between citing and cited references.
    Based on our results in this study, one may draw conclusions in the following:
    1.In addition to the amount of scholarly literatures determined by citation information system producers, citation counts are also varied resulted from the selection policy, especially concerning about comprehensiveness of journal coverage and type of scholarly literatures, such as conference proceedings and so on.
    2.It has proven to be economical effectiveness for the use of core journals, according to the citation counts both of SCIE and Scopus.
    3.Record fields and style of cited references collected by information systems has a far–reaching influence on calculation of citation counts.
    4.The distinctive recognition on granularity of references for scholarly literatures between SCIE and Scopus also deeply impact the calculation of citation counts.
    5.The policy of quality assurance on data verification and correction is another influential factor resulting in various calculations of citation counts.
    6.Errors stemmed from misquotation of original scholarly literatures get the accuracy of citation counts into disputable.
    7.The errors from production of information system are much worse than those stemmed from misquotation of original scholarly literatures, such as omission of cited references, record linkage errors and so on.

    Based on the conclusions above, five suggestions for improving citedness score of information systems are raised as follows:
    1.To expand the data coverage of journals into the other scholarly literatures, such as conference papers.
    2.To enhance quality assurance on citations.
    3.To record the fullness of paper title and author rather than in an abbreviation ways, in order to facilitate the identification of cited and citing references.
    4.To build up a consistent policy for inclusion of cited references.
    5.To adopt record identifier mechanism for reference pointer function, instead of reference-matching one.
