Abstract

There is no significant penalty for the most frequent self-citers, and the effect of self-citation remains positive even for very high rates of self-citation. However, WoS has dropped some journals from its database because of untrue trends in the citations. The same policy also should be applied for the most frequent self-citers. The ethics of publications should be adhered to by those who wish to conduct research and publish their findings.

Keywords: Improve citation, Research impact, Publication ethics
