Publications and weighted RCR

link iCite SHCS 

updated February 2023 

The Relative Citation Ratio (RCR) shows how well cited an article is when benchmarked against publications resulting from NIH-funded papers in the same field and year of publication. An RCR greater than 1.00 means the article is more cited than expected according to the average.

SHCS RCR   max 50.92  /  mean 2.21
median of the papers in the group 0.98

The weighted RCR is the sum of the RCRs for the articles in the group. This weights the article count by their influence relative to NIH-funded papers. A highly influential set of articles will have a higher weighted RCR than total publications.

SHCS total publications         1'366
total weighted RCR          2'919.35
