Dergi Kendine Atıfının Etkisi: Energy Education Science and Technology Örneği

Bibliyometrik araştırmalar bilimsel çalışmaların etkinliğini ölçmekte, niceliksel ve niteliksel açıdan sorgulamaktadır. Araştırma değerlendirme çalışmaları kişiler, kurumlar ya da ülkeler arasında karşılaştırmalar yapılmasına olanak sağlamakta, ortaya çıkan sonuçlar ile ülkelerin veya kurumların bilimsel gelişmişliğini ortaya koymaktadır. Aynı zamanda kurumların ve ülkelerin bilimsel yayın politikaları daşekillenmektedir. Bu çalışmada dergi kendine atıf kavramı ve dergi kendine atıfının dergi yayıncılığı üzerindeki etkileri incelenmektedir. Bu bağlamda Science Citation Index Expanded tarafından 2008 yılından beri dizinlenmekte olan Energy Education Science and Technology adlı dergi bibliyometrik özellikleri açısından değerlendirilmiştir. Çalışmada Energy Education Science and Technology’dekiatıfların %94’ünün dergi kendine atıfı olduğu sonucuna ulaşılmıştır. Bu durum önemli ölçüde anormallik sergilemekte ve etik olmayan sonuçlara neden olmaktadır. EEST’nin etki faktörünün yükselmesine doğrudan etki eden dergi kendine atıf sayıları derginin olduğundan farklı şekilde değerlendirilmesine yol açmaktadır.

The Impact of Journal Self-Citation: The Case of Energy Education Science and Technology

The impact of scientific studies is measured and examined quantitatively and qualitatively by bibliometric methods. By means of research evaluation studies, comparisons are made in between countries, institutions or individuals indicate scientific development,and consequently all these efforts help the formation of scientificpublication policies of countries and institutions. This study analyzes thejournal self-citation concept and its impact on academic publishing. It also examinesbibliometric features of the Energy Education Science and Technology that has been indexed by the Science Citation Index Expanded since 2008. In conclusion, it is found that 94% of the Energy Education Science and Technology citations are journal self-citation. Self-citation numbers that affect the increase ofEEST’s impact factor lead to serious abnormities and cause unethical consequences
