Percentile in Subject Area: The percentile of a publication is determined by creating a citation frequency distribution for all the publications in the same year, subject category, and of the same document type (arranging the papers in descending order of citation count), and determining the percentage of papers at each level of citation, i.e., the percentage of papers cited more often than the paper of interest. If a paper has a Percentile in Subject Area of 1%, then 99% of the papers in the same subject category, year, and of the same document type have a citation count that is lower: smaller percentile = better performance. The Percentile in Subject Area is available from the document list view for all papers in the InCites dataset.
Average Percentile: For any set of papers, an Average Percentile can be calculated as the mean of the percentiles of all of the papers in the set. If a paper is assigned to more than one category, the category in which the percentile value is closest to zero is used, i.e. the best performing value.
Other InCites metrics help you identify what percentage of papers in a set are performing at a particular level of citation.
International Collaborations: This indicator shows the number of publications in a set with at least two different countries among the affiliations of the co-authors.
% International Collaborations: This indicator shows the percentage of publications in a set that have international co-authors.
% Industry Collaborations: Industry collaborations are papers with at least one corporate author affiliation. This indicator shows the percentage of publications in a set that have a corporate co-author.
