Abstract

The existing Science Citation Index only counts direct citations, whereas PageRank disregards the number of direct citations. We propose a new Comprehensive Citation Index (CCI) that evaluates both direct and indirect intellectual influence of research papers, and show that CCI is more reliable in discovering research papers with far-reaching influence.

Keywords: citation analysis, citation networks, Comprehensive Citation Index, PageRank, Science Citation Index
