Display parameters

Based on different display parameters, you can define the contents and appearance of different displays, which include citation data in WoS and Scopus databases for researchers, groups of researchers, projects, programmes and research organizations, registered within the SICRIS system, for authors with a researcher's code, assigned by IZUM, or with the identification number of author from the CONOR.SI authority database, for Slovene universities, and for serials or publications in COBISS system.

  • Citation base more >>>


    Citation data is displayed on the basis of citations of publications for which a direct link in the WoS databases or in the Scopus is made.

    <<< less

  • Code(s), CONOR.SI-ID(s), ISSN(s) or COBIB.SI-ID(s) more >>>


    Citation data is possible only based on the code of the researcher, group of researchers, project, programme or research organization in the SICRIS system, or based on the registration code assigned to the author or the identification number of author from the CONOR.SI authority database, ISSN number for serials, COBIB.SI-ID number for record in COBISS system or Slovene university by IZUM:

    • UNI-001 – University of Ljubljana
    • UNI-002 – University of Maribor
    • UNI-003 – University of Nova Gorica
    • UNI-004 – University of Primorska

    The display can be created for several researcher's codes, groups of researchers, projects, programmes, research organisations, authors' registration numbers or for several ISSN or COBIB.SI-ID numbers at once. In such a case, enter the codes or numbers separated with comma ',', e.g. 00004,02581,00199. The report will be created for the deduplicated set of all bibliographic units for all codes or numbers; within the set, the selection of bibliographic units is performed based on the other input parameters. It may take a longer period of time to create reports for several codes or numbers at once.

    The parameter is mandatory.

    <<< less

  • Entity more >>>


    With this parameter, you can define the entity (researcher/author with a code, author with a identification number from the CONOR.SI, group of researchers, project, programme or research organization registered within the SICRIS system, university, serial or publication) to which the codes or numbers entered in the parameter Code(s). CONOR.SI-ID(s), ISSN(s) or COBIB.SI-ID(s) refers to.

    <<< less

  • Without code(s), ISSN(s) or COBIB.SI-ID(s) more >>>


    From the report, it is possible to exclude bibliographic units of one or more researchers, research groups, programmes, research organisations, Slovenian universities, authors with registration codes, serials or publications. Codes or numbers are entered into the field separated by commas (»,«), e.g. 00004,02581. The report will be created for all bibliographic units for all codes or numbers, entered in the Code(s), CONOR.SI-ID(s), ISSN(s) or COBIB.SI-ID(s) field, and excluding all bibliographic units for all codes or numbers, entered in the Without code(s), ISSN(s) or COBIB.SI.ID(s) field.

    <<< less

  • Entity (Without codes or numbers) more >>>


    With this parameter, you can define the entity (researcher/author with a code, group of researchers, project, programme or research organization registered within the SICRIS system, university, serial or publication) to which the codes or numbers entered in the parameter Without code(s), ISSN(s) or COBIB.SI-ID(s) refers to.

    <<< less

  • Publication year more >>>


    By entering the years into the text boxes from and to, you define the time period when the publication was published for which you wish the citation data to be displayed. The default value for from is 1970 and for to the default value is the current year. If the value in from is smaller than the value in to, these two values are exchanged before the display is prepared.

    <<< less

  • Year of citation more >>>


    By entering the years into the text boxes from and to, you define the time period of citations for which you wish the citation data to be displayed, regardless of the publication year (an publication published before the year entered into the text box to will be included in the display if it is cited after the relevant year). The default value for from is 1970 and for to the default value is the current year. If the value in from is smaller than the value in to, these two values are exchanged before the display is prepared.

    <<< less

  • Publications, Typologies more >>>


    All linked publications (publications with a link established between the records in the COBIB.SI database and the records in the WoS or Scopus databases), all categorized publications (publications with typology), scientific publications (publications with typology 1.01, 1.02, 1.03, 1.06, 1.07 or 1.08) or publications with typologies, which are entered to the Typologies field, separated by a comma (e.g. 1.02,1.03,1.04), can be displayed.

    <<< less

  • Language of the display more >>>


    You can choose from the following two languages:

    • eng – English
    • slv – Slovene

    <<< less

  • Statistics / Lists more >>>


    You can define which data is to be displayed. You can select from the following options:

    • statistics
      • by year of citation – number of citations, of pure citations and of cited publications, and average number of pure citations per publication by year of citation
      • by publication year – number of citations, of pure citations and of linked publications, and average number of pure citations per publication by publication year
      • by journal – number of citations, of pure citations and of linked publication, and average number of pure citations per publication by journal
    • bibliography – list of linked bibliographic units with citation data and h-index, additionally, it is possible to display:
      • co-authorship - the list of authors' codes and codes of groups of authors from the SICRIS system or from the universities that authors of a bibliographic unit belong to
      • citations by year - the number of citations by year of citation for a bibliographic unit

    If you do not select any display, only summary citation data will be included in the display.

    <<< less

  • Graph more >>>


    By ticking the checkbox you include a graphs for selected displays (by year of citation and/or by publication year) in the parameter Statistics.

    <<< less

The display is made in the HTML format (up to 3.000 records in the bibliography), which includes link to the display in the PDF format (with no graphs, maximum 1.000 records in the bibliography or maximum 500 records in case of the display of the number of citations by year for a bibliographic unit), to the display in the TXT and the JSON format, and to the display in the XML format according to the schema http://home.izum.si/COBISS/xml/Citations.html.

Searching for entity codes

Codes of researchers, research groups, projects, programmes or research organisations can be found in the SICRIS system, whereas the registration codes that were appointed to the authors by IZUM, the identification numbers of other authors can be found in the CONOR.SI authority file for personal names and the ISSN numbers of serials or identificators COBIB,SI-ID for publications can be found in COBIB.SI database. The COBISS/SciMet platform includes a web form, which enables basic and advanced search for entity codes or ISSN and COBIB.SI-ID numbers; values are offered automatically according to the search string entered by the userThis means that you can search for individual entities without knowing the codes by knowing the entity name, surname or title from the SICRIS system or from the CONOR.SI authority file, or you can search for individual series or publications without knowing the ISSN or COBIB.SI-ID numbers in the COBISS system by knowing the serial or publication title.

Basic codes search is performed for all entities at the same time. Depending on the entered search string the found researcher codes are displayed first, followed by the found CONOR.SI-ID identifiers and codes for research groups, programmes, projects, organisations Slovenian universities and ISSN or COBIB.SI-ID numbers. In advanced search searching for codes and numbers is enabled in the search fields Code(s), CONOR.SI-ID(s), ISSN(s) or COBIB.SI-ID(s) and Without code(s), ISSN(s) or COBIB.SI-ID(s). Based on the selected type of entity from the Entity or Entity (Without codes or numbers) drop-down list, the values related to the entered search string are offered to the user automatically. It is also possible to search by several codes or numbers, separated with commas (,). The search field will display help for every search string starting with a comma.

For example: If you wish to enter the researcher's code for Vito Turk into the field Code(s),  CONOR.SI-ID(s), ISSN(s) or COBIB.SI-ID(s), select the value researcher/author with a code with a code from the Entity drop-down list, and enter Vito Turk into the search field. Word order and capitalisation are irrelevant (name surname or surname name). If there are spaces between search string elements (e.g. v turk), the search will be performed by the author's name, surname or the entity title for every word in the search string. From the drop-down list, which opens under the search field, possible hits are displayed every time you enter a character. Select the entity you were searching for. By selecting the entity, only the entity code is transferred to the search field, and not the entity's name, surname or title.

If you are searching for a search string that is not displayed in the drop-down list, this could mean that:

  • you did not select the appropriate type of entity from the Entity or Entity (Without codes or numbers) drop-down list – you must select the type of entity that corresponds to the code you are searching for;
  • the entity you are searching for is not displayed as the drop-down list is limited to 15 hits – change (update) the search string to receive less possible hits;
  • the search string is not in the SICRIS database, in the CONOR.SI authority file or among the registration codes appointed by IZUMif you think that this data should be included, please send an e-mail to podpora@izum.si.
