Journal statistics for LiU 2013

The Library provides access to more than 15 000 journals. But which ones are the most frequently used and cited by LiU researchers? And in which journals do Linköping researchers most frequently get published?


Most frequently downloaded

The Library’s figures for 2013 shows that Nature heads the list of the most frequently downloaded e-journals at LiU. During the year, articles from this particular periodical was downloaded 12 642 times. Number two on the list is Harvard Business Review with 10 435 downloads and at third place comes Science with 8933 downloads.


Most frequently cited

Nature is also on the list with the most frequently cited journals, but the number one on the list is PNAS (Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences of the United States of America), cited 539 times by LiU researchers during 2013, followed by Science, cited 499 times. Nature comes in at third place with 491 citations.


LiU researchers’ publications

Where do LiU-affiliated researchers most often publish their findings? With 69 publications, the journal PLoS One heads this list for 2013. Applied Physics Letters follows with 27 publications, and Journal of Applied Physics and Physical Review B with 23 publications respectively.


Natural sciences and medicine dominate

A close inspection of the figures shows that many of the journals heading these lists are within the fields of natural sciences and medicine. Why? One factor is the publication patterns in these heavily journal-focused disciplines. Other disciplines, such as the humanities, to a large extent use other publication channels, such as a monographs and anthologies, which do not show up in these figures.
