Citation metrics are one of the most used features on INSPIRE. We are always looking for ways to enhance the options to search through citations and references.
We introduced three new search terms you can use to refine your search results and exclude self citations:
- “citedexcludingselfcites:50+” gives you papers with more than 50 citations, without counting citations by any of the paper’s authors. You can also use the short form ‘cx’ and just search for “cx:50+”.
- “citedbyexcludingselfcites:author:M.E.Peskin.1” gives you all the papers cited by the author Michael Peskin that are not written by him. Also here, you get the same search results by using the short form ‘citedbyx‘.
- “referstoexcludingselfcites:author:M.E.Peskin.1” gives you all the papers which cite any of Michael Peskin’s papers, excluding any paper by Michael Peskin himself. The short form for this search term is ‘referstox’.
