April 01, 2019

Liudmyla Ostapenko, Ph.D., the "Business Perspectives" company CEO, and Serhiy Kozmenko, Professor, the co-founder of "Business Perspectives" took part in the conference.
Serhiy Kozmenko contributed to the conference with a lecture on "The phenomenon and methodology of the monopolists of scientometrics (evidence from Scopus and Web of Science Core Collection)". He said that for Ukrainian scientists, the presence of their articles in journals indexed in leading citation systems is a prerequisite for career development. It is necessary for obtaining a scientific degree, academic rank, registration of a contract, etc. The presence of a large number of such articles and journals provides the necessary positions of the university (scientific institution) in various ratings. All this is enshrined in normative documents and legislative acts. But why did it happen that two bases with their products (Scopus and Web of Science Core Collection) actually conquered the whole scientific world? Are these bases methodologically impeccable, the procedures are transparent, and their content is qualitative?
