From the book Handbook Bibliometrics

  • Jafar Mehrad and Mohammad Reza Ghane


National citation indexing systems are as important as global systems for research policymakers, researchers, and journals in each country. The evaluation of scientific activities in national higher education institutes (HEIs) helps the decisionmaking process become more realistic. In this chapter we introduce ISC, its historical construction, and application. This study includes an overview of global attention to national tools for evaluating scientific performances: ISC historical background, policies, departments, and products.
