Mathematical citation quotient for probability and statistics journals – 2016 update

We have already considered the mathematical citation quotient (MCQ) in a couple of posts (here and there). We give below the 2016 update of the MCQ evolution for probability journals, and for statistics journals. The graphics were produced using MathSciNet, Python, and LibreOffice. Since the MCQ normalization is with respect to papers and not with respect to pages, the MCQ is not in favor of journals publishing exclusively or frequently short papers such as Electronic Communications in Probability (ECP) and Journal of Statistical Physics (JSP). We still see on these graphics the three (maybe four) clusters for probability, and the domination of a Europe-USA couple for statistics. We also see a possible beginning of domination of a Europe-USA couple in probability. Is it an instance of some sort of self-organized criticality? The concept seems to be vague enough to include the phenomenon.

Dauphine Plurielle

Dauphine Plurielle

À Paris-Dauphine, le second mandat du président Laurent Batsch s’achève bientôt. Ses années de pouvoir ont été marquées par une conjoncture et des décisions stratégiques pour l’établissement.

Le 22 novembre auront lieu les élections quinquennales pour les conseils centraux : conseil d’administration (CA), conseil de la formation et de la vie étudiante (CFVE), et conseil scientifique (CS). Le mandat correspond à la période 2017-2022. Je soutiens les listes Dauphine Plurielle www.dauphineplurielle.net menées par Isabelle Huault, qui rassemblent des collègues de toutes les composantes de l’université, notamment plusieurs collègues mathématiciens.
