Overview

Top Research Topics at Research Challenges in Information Science?

  • Knowledge management (16.85%)
  • Software engineering (16.08%)
  • Information system (13.30%)

The concepts of Knowledge management, Software engineering, Information system, Process (engineering) and Context (language use) are tackled in the conference. The work on Knowledge management addressed in the conference expands to the thematically related Process management. The studies on Process management discussed can also contribute to research in the domains of Artifact-centric business process model and Business process modeling.

Artifact-centric business process model research discussed connects with the study of Business process discovery. Research Challenges in Information Science tackles studies in Business rule and the interrelated subject of Business Process Model and Notation to gain insights into Business process modeling. The concepts on Software engineering presented in Research Challenges in Information Science can also apply to other research fields, including Software, Requirements engineering, Software development, Unified Modeling Language and Systems engineering.

The event explores research in Requirements engineering and the adjacent study of Requirements analysis. The study on Information system presented in the conference intersects with subjects under the field of Data science. Research Challenges in Information Science covers Business process management research under the subject of Business process.

What are the most cited papers published at the conference?

  • Creating an Ontology for the User Profile: Method and Applications (143 citations)
  • The four pillars of crowdsourcing: A reference model (101 citations)
  • Guidelines for industrially-based multiple case studies in software engineering (86 citations)

Research areas of the most cited articles at Research Challenges in Information Science:

Knowledge management, Software engineering, Information system, Process management and Business process are the main subjects of interest in the most cited articles. The conference articles explore issues in Software engineering which can be linked to other research areas like Requirements traceability, Enterprise architecture and Systems engineering. The most cited articles facilitate discussions on Information system that incorporate concepts from other fields like Domain (software engineering), Unified Modeling Language, Correctness, Risk analysis (engineering) and Data science.

What topics the last edition of the conference is best known for?

  • Artificial intelligence
  • Law
  • Programming language

The previous edition focused in particular on these issues:

The main research concerns discussed in the conference are Computer security, World Wide Web, Context (language use), Knowledge management and Data mining. Research Challenges in Information Science discusses concepts in Mobile Web and The Internet under World Wide Web and how they intertwine with disciplines like Electronic mail. Topics in Context (language use) were tackled in line with various other fields like User interface, Software system, Industrial control system, Usability and Information system.

While the primary focus in the event is Knowledge management, it also dissects topics surrounding Process management and Artifact-centric business process model, Business process modeling and Systems development life cycle as a whole. The studies in Data mining featured incorporate elements of Ontology (information science), Information retrieval, Linked data and RDF. Business Process Model and Notation research presented in it encompasses a variety of subjects, including Software engineering and Adaptation (computer science).

The most cited articles from the last conference are:

  • Securing digital identities in the cloud by selecting an apposite Federated Identity Management from SAML, OAuth and OpenID Connect (30 citations)
  • Supporting the design of privacy-aware business processes via privacy process patterns (13 citations)
  • Gamification solutions for software acceptance: A comparative study of Requirements Engineering and Organizational Behavior techniques (10 citations)

Papers citation over time

A key indicator for each conference is its effectiveness in reaching other researchers with the papers published at that venue.

The chart below presents the interquartile range (first quartile 25%, median 50% and third quartile 75%) of the number of citations of articles over time.

Publication chance based on affiliation

The publication chance index shows the ratio of articles published by the best research institutions at the conference edition to all articles published within that conference. The best research institutions were selected based on the largest number of articles published during all editions of the conference.

The chart below presents the percentage ratio of articles from top institutions (based on their ranking of total papers).Top affiliations were grouped by their rank into the following tiers: top 1-10, top 11-20, top 21-50, and top 51+. Only articles with a recognized affiliation are considered.

Research.com

During the most recent 2017 edition, 3.51% of publications had an unrecognized affiliation. Out of the publications with recognized affiliations, 43.64% were posted by at least one author from the top 10 institutions publishing at the conference. Another 1.82% included authors affiliated with research institutions from the top 11-20 affiliations. Institutions from the 21-50 range included 14.55% of all publications and 40.00% were from other institutions.

Returning Authors Index

A very common phenomenon observed among researchers publishing scientific articles is the intentional selection of conferences they have already attended in the past. In particular, it is worth analyzing the case when the authors participate in the same conference from year to year.

The Returning Authors Index presented below illustrates the ratio of authors who participated in both a given as well as the previous edition of the conference in relation to all participants in a given year.

Returning Institution Index

The graph below shows the Returning Institution Index, illustrating the ratio of institutions that participated in both a given and the previous edition of the conference in relation to all affiliations present in a given year.

The experience to innovation index

Our experience to innovation index was created to show a cross-section of the experience level of authors publishing at a conference. The index includes the authors publishing at the last edition of a conference, grouped by total number of publications throughout their academic career (P) and the total number of citations of these publications ever received (C).

The group intervals were selected empirically to best show the diversity of the authors' experiences, their labels were selected as a convenience, not as judgment. The authors were divided into the following groups:

  • Novice - P < 5 or C < 25 (the number of publications less than 5 or the number of citations less than 25),
  • Competent - P < 10 or C < 100 (the number of publications less than 10 or the number of citations less than 100),
  • Experienced - P < 25 or C < 625 (the number of publications less than 25 or the number of citations less than 625),
  • Master - P < 50 or C < 2500 (the number of publications less than 50 or the number of citations less than 2500),
  • Star - P ≥ 50 and C ≥ 2500 (both the number of publications greater than 50 and the number of citations greater than 2500).
