Overview

Top Research Topics at Journal of Sound and Vibration?

The discussions in the journal mainly cover the fields of Vibration, Mathematical analysis, Mechanics, Structural engineering and Acoustics. It addresses concerns in Vibration which are intertwined with other disciplines, such as Control theory, Nonlinear system, Beam (structure), Boundary value problem and Finite element method. Many of the studies tackled connect Control theory with a similar field of study like Vibration control.

The work on Mathematical analysis tackled in the journal brings together disciplines like Normal mode, Geometry and Eigenvalues and eigenvectors. In Journal of Sound and Vibration, Amplitude and Classical mechanics are investigated in conjunction with one another to address concerns in Mechanics research. The main emphasis of Journal of Sound and Vibration is the subject of Classical mechanics, focusing on Equations of motion.

Journal of Sound and Vibration connects research in Structural engineering with the related topic of Modal. While the journal focused on Acoustics, it was also able to explore topics like Duct (flow) and Optics.

  • Vibration (33.40%)

The works on Mathematical analysis tackled in the published papers bring together disciplines like Geometry and Eigenvalues and eigenvectors.

Papers citation over time

A key indicator for each journal 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 in the journal edition to all articles published within that journal. The best research institutions were selected based on the largest number of articles published during all editions of the journal.

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 2022 edition, 0.00% of publications had an unrecognized affiliation. Out of the publications with recognized affiliations, 0.00% were posted by at least one author from the top 10 institutions publishing in the journal. Another 0.00% included authors affiliated with research institutions from the top 11-20 affiliations. Institutions from the 21-50 range included 0.00% of all publications and 100.00% were from other institutions.

Returning Authors Index

A very common phenomenon observed among researchers publishing scientific articles is the intentional selection of journals they have already attended in the past. In particular, it is worth analyzing the case when the authors participate in the same journal 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 journal 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 in a journal. The index includes the authors publishing at the last edition of a journal, 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).
