Unveiling the New Version of ISC Citation Matching Project for Calculation of Citations to Articles
Based on the reports of Islamic World Science Citation Center (ISC) and Regional Information Center for Science and Technology (RICeST) Office of International Scientific Cooperation (OISC), ISC Citation Matching was unveiled on 24th of November, 2018.
Unveiling ISC Citation Matching, i.e. a program for calculation of citations to articles, took place by attendance of ISC and RICeST dean and vice-presidents in research affairs, the dean counselor, and a group of ISC personnel. This progress can open a new chapter in efficiency of citation system of ISC.
Regarding the fact that one of the most important missions of ISC is finding indexed and cited articles in this database, it seems essential to operationalize each citation by using a smart algorithm to find the most related article in title, authors, year of publication, volume, issue, and journal title. Therefore, one of the advantages of this method in comparison to the previous one is the possibility of fast updating of citations statistics. Besides, it is so flexible that makes it resistant to probable errors in typing or inexistence of needed parameters for citation, and it leads to more accurate calculation of citations.
