What's New in InCites?

October 03, 2019

A new InCites experience:

Each of the features in this and future releases were informed by our InCites users - through surveys, interviews and prototype-testing over the past year. And in discovering our user workflows, we are keen to ensure that these existing workflows are not interrupted. Our release schedule is designed to introduce gradual usability improvements with a corresponding release notes, to outline what has changed and why. 

We are also excited to introduce Open Access Impactstory Data in InCites. We have added the following 12 new indicators capturing and aggregating the article level OA version in InCites. These indicators are available in all contexts under "Manage Indicators - Open Access tab". To learn more about Impactstory OA data, please follow this link.

This set of features, among a series of planned updates, will make InCites Benchmarking & Analytics more intuitive, inviting and valuable to you. Please review the release notes posted here (application/pdf, 629.4 kB, info).

If you are an EZProxy user, please make the necessary configuration changes outlined by OCLC here to ensure a seamless user experience.

With this release, the European NUTS classification data is now available in InCites B&A. The Nomenclature of Territorial Units for Statistics (aka NUTS) is a geocode standard for referencing the subdivisions of countries for statistical purposes. The standard is developed and regulated by the European Union, and thus only covers the member states of the EU in detail. The Nomenclature of Territorial Units for Statistics is instrumental in the European Union's Structural Fund delivery mechanisms. For each EU member country, a hierarchy of three NUTS levels is established by Eurostat:

- NUTS 1: major socio-economic regions

- NUTS 2: basic regions

- NUTS 3: small regions

All of the level 1, 2 and 3 data is available under each "Location" filter in Regions, Research Area, Journal and Funding Agencies as well as in the "Collaboration with Location" filter for People and Organization entities. 

Country/Region option is now selected by default within the "Location Type" filter of Region explorer.

New features implemented in this release:

1. ESCI index from WoS core collection is now available in B&A: The option to toggle between ESCI and non ESCI datasets is available through Explorer. Once in Explorer, users are able to select or deselect ESCI and the underlying data and performance baselines are updated immediately to show the research impact. By default, this is unchecked.

2. New Indicator  - 1 Year Citing all Prior Years Cumulative: This new indicator is available in the "Organization" entity and counts citing document grouped by the publication year of the citing document. Thus, this is another variation of the "Times Cites Per year" but instead of looking at the publication year of the source document, we are capturing the publication year of the citing document. This can be found under "Manage indicators" -> Impact group. This new indicator is also available in the "Research Performance" system report. It provides institution the performance (in particular year) of all their publications written so far. For example: How many times my entire publications were cited by documents published in a specific year? 

On the other hand, the times cited per year indicator provides Institution the performance of their publications written in a particular year. For example: How many times my publications from 2012 were cited when compared to my publications from 2011? 

Information on the latest release of the InCites dataset can be found in the Data and Subscription Notification updates.

    • A second type of trend graph, the 5-Year Trend Graph, has been added to all Explorers. This graph groups documents and citations accumulated in the same five-year period. Trend lines on multi-year graphs tend to appear more stable than those illustrated on single-year graphs.

    • Program based “KAKENHI-Japan” has been added to the funding agency explorer, combining all KAKENHI programs provided by MEXT (Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology, Japan) and JSPS (Japan Society for the Promotion of Science). The unification of KAKENHI programs is partly based on a collaboration project with NISTEP (National Institute of Science and Technology Policy), Japan.

    • Now you can save up to 20 custom datasets. The previous limit was 5.

    • Custom datasets can now be exported from the My Folders page.

    • A new threshold, Authors per Document, has been added to all InCites Explorers. This threshold enables you to limit a dataset to only documents with a minimum and maximum number of authors.

January 14, 2017

    • Research Area data in the Web of Science Documents table has been modified so that the Percentile in Subject Area corresponds to the first listed Research Area. This change affects only documents assigned to multiple research areas.

December 1, 2016

    • ORCID and RID found in Web of Science Core Collection are now searchable in each of the InCites Explorers.  All documents associated with the author identifier will appear in InCites, so that Web of Science and InCites similarly represent authorship.  

    • Prior to the 2016 4th bimonthly update of InCites (November 2016) a document’s publisher was determined at the time the document was indexed. Whatever the publisher was at the time of indexing (1980-2016), InCites displayed this as the publisher of the document. For example if a journal changed publishers in 2010, its pre-2010 documents would be associated with the previous publisher and its 2010-and-later documents would be associated with the current publisher.

With the latest InCites update, this protocol has undergone a change. Now InCites will display every document’s publisher as whichever publisher is currently associated with the document’s publication. Extending the above example, after a 2010 publisher change all of a journal’s documents (even those published prior to 2010) will be associated with the current publisher.

September 22, 2016

    • New Location Type filter has been added to further refine your queries by selecting from Country/Region, Country/Region Groups and/or State/Province combinations.
