What's New in InCites?

May 15, 2017

  • A new Research Area scheme has been added to InCites. The CAPES classification scheme was created by the Foundation CAPES, linked to the Ministry of Education, in order to facilitate the evaluation and skills improvement of superior education staff in Brazil. CAPES stands for Coordenação de Aperfeiçoamento de Pessoal de Nível Superior. More information.

  • 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 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.
