Posted by lipsius at 2020-02-29

On July 20, Beijing time, Google officially released its academic indicators for 2019.


Google academic metrics (GSM) is a journal evaluation system launched by Google in 2012 to evaluate the influence of journals in various fields. Publications included in the GSM need to meet the following standards: publish at least 100 articles and have at least one reference in the past five years. As a result, the 2019 GSM covers articles published in 2013-2017, including citations for all articles indexed in Google academic search as of July 2018.

GSM evaluation standards mainly include the following core indicators:

H-index: in the published papers, at least h papers have been cited at least h times, so the H factor of this journal is h.

H-CORE: the most cited h papers in the journal.

H-median: the number of times a paper in the H core is cited.

H5 index: the h index of all papers published in the journal in the past five years

H5 median: the median number of citations for all papers covered by the journal's H5 index.

For example, if a journal publishes 5 papers with 17, 9, 6, 3 and 2 citations, the h index of the journal is 3. The H core refers to 3 papers with 17, 9 and 6 citations, and the H median is 9.

The ranking of GSM in 2019 has been published on the official website. The top 20 journals in the field of "computer security and encryption" are as follows:

Among the top 5 conferences / journals, the most frequently cited single paper is "towards evaluating the robot of neural networks" in the S & P conference, which has been cited 1080 times. The second most cited is "Drebin: effective and explainable detection of Android malware in your pocket." in NDSS meeting, it was cited 968 times.

S & P, full name: IEEE Symposium on security and privacy is due in November every year, and will meet in the United States in May the next year. Since it is held in Oakland every year, the conference is also known as Oakland.

CCS, full name: ACM Symposium on computer and communications security, which is to be finalized in May of each year, meets in the United States in October of the same year.

USENIX security, full name: USENIX Security Symposium is finalized in February every year, and meets in the United States in August of the same year. USENIX security is a security conference in USENIX.

NDSS, full name: network and Distributed System Security Symposium is finalized in August every year, and meets in the United States in February the next year.
