Alert System is a tool which enables you to receive Alerts from electronic journals by Email or by RSS feed.
A citation is a reference to a source (not always the original source), published or unpublishedb.
CrossRef is an access service which seeks the full text and related references of the manuscript published by the other authors using Google search engine.
Database is a structured collection of records or data that is stored in a computer system.
The structure is achieved by organizing the data according to a database model
The Digital Object Identifier (DOIÂ®) System is for identifying content objects in the digital environment. DOIÂ® names are assigned to any entity for use on digital networks. They are used to provide current information, including where they (or information about them) can be found on the Internet. Information about a digital object may change over time, including where to find it, but its DOI name will not change.
E-Alert services are free services designed to alert the readers when new content is available online .
It enables readers to receive Alerts from electronic journals by Email or by RSS feed.
EndNote Web is a Web-based tool for managing and citing references in papers and creating bibliographies.
The h-index is an index that quantifies both the actual scientific productivity and the apparent scientific impact of a scientist.
The index is based on the set of the scientist's most cited papers and the number of citations that they have received in other people's publications.
The index can also be applied to the productivity and impact of a group of scientists, such as a department or university or country.
The index was suggested by Jorge E. Hirsch, a physicist at UCSD, as a tool for determining theoretical physicists' relative quality and is sometimes called the Hirsch index or Hirsch number.
9. Hot Paper
A highly cited published manuscript during 2 recent years with the most citations in a period of more than 2 months.
Every two months, Essential Science Indicators lists a new crop of what it calls hot papers in science. Hot papers are selected by virtue of being cited among the top one-tenth of one percent (0.1%) in a current bimonthly period. Papers are selected in each of 22 fields of science and must be published within the last two years. Because the hot papers are updated every two months, new papers are added with every update, and Special Topics tracks these new additions.
Here Special Topics highlights the most-cited of these new entries, one from each field, which are, in addition, not more than one year old. Since new hot papers are very recent scientific contributions that are receiving recognition during a current period, they may signal important new trends in research and serve as leading indicators of scientific advance.
11. Immediacy Index
Immediacy Index (II) is a measure of how topical and urgent work published in a scientific journal is. Along with the better known impact factor measure, it is a calculated each year by the Institute for Scientific Information for those journals which it indexes; both impact factors and immediacy indices are published annually in the Journal Citation Reports.
12. Impact Factor
The impact factor, often abbreviated IF, is a measure of the citations to science and social science journals. It is frequently used as a proxy for the importance of a journal to its field.
The Impact factor was devised by Eugene Garfield, the founder of the Institute for Scientific Information, now part of Thomson, a large worldwide US-based publisher. Impact factors are calculated each year by Thomson Scientific for those journals which it indexes, and the factors and indices are published in Journal Citation Reports. The publication of each year covered occurs in the summer of the following year.
For example impact factors for 2008 will be published in the summer of 2009. Some related values, also calculated and published by the same organization, are:
the immediacy index: the number of citations the articles in a journal receive in a given year divided by the number of articles published.
the cited half-life: the median age of the articles that were cited in Journal Citation Reports each year. For example, if a journal's half-life in 2005 is 5, that means the citations from 2001-2005 are half of all the citations from that journal in 2005, and the other half of the citations precede 2001.
The aggregate impact factor for a subject category: it is calculated taking into account the number of citations to all journals in the subject category and the number of articles from all the journals in the subject category.
A statistical indicator providing a representation of the value of the securities which constitute it.

16. Journal Citation Reports
Journal Citation ReportsÂ® (JCR) offers a systematic, objective means to critically evaluate the world's leading journals, with quantifiable, statistical information based on citation data. By compiling articles' cited references, JCR Web helps to measure research influence and impact at the journal and category levels, and shows the relationship between citing and cited journals. Available in Science and Social Sciences editions.
17. Reference Manager
Reference ManagerÂ® are the industry standard software tools for publishing and managing bibliographies on the Windows and Macintosh desktop. Using these products, writers save countless hours of typing and interpreting style requirements when creating bibliographies for curricula vitae, manuscripts, thesis/dissertations, grant proposals, term papers and other publications.
Other industry standard software tools can be as; EndNoteÂ®, ProCiteÂ®.
ResearcherID invites researchers to build their own custom publication profile and avoid the common problem of author misidentification. Researchers receive a unique URL for easy access, instant citation metrics including a h-index, privacy controls, and tools that display interactive world maps of collaborators and citing articles.
RSS (Really Simple Syndication) is an XML-based syndication format for distributing content on the Web. New articles that have been added to a journal can be distributed using the RSS format.
SJR is an indication that expresses the number of connections that a journal of receives through the citations of its documents divided the total of documents published in the year selected by the publication, weighted according to the amount of incoming and outgoing connections of the scoures.

The Extensible Markup Language (XML) is a subset of SGML that is completely described in this document. Its goal is to enable generic SGML to be served, received, and processed on the Web in the way that is now possible with HTML. XML has been designed for ease of implementation and for interoperability with both SGML and HTML.
