Paper 3: Climate Change Adaptation for Neophytes - UPEI Projects


LINKING CLIMATE MODELS TO POLICY AND DECISION-MAKINGin different research areas, and variations in citation habits between differentdisciplines. All these factors are relevant considerations for CCA which drawsfrom numerous disciplines. Nevertheless, the calculation is an effective,consistent, and transparent means of comparing journals, given caveats. Figure 4shows the relationship between the journals’ relative impact factors and theirranking.FIGURE 4Ranked Impact Factor of the top 18 journals. The journals Science and Nature wereremoved to facilitate comparison.Aside from Science and Nature, it is clear that Environmental Health Perspectivesdominates the field, with Agricultural and Forest Meteorology following not toofar behind in terms of impact factor. Within the CCA community though, ClimaticChange has a high impact as well as the greatest number of articles, with GlobalEnvironmental Change close behind. Unfortunately, we could not assess therelative importance of Mitigation and Adaptation Strategies for Global Change,since ISI does not rank the journal.58

PAPER 3 CLIMATE CHANGE ADAPTATION FOR NEOPHYTESFinally, we can also assess who the key authors of the CCA field are bydetermining the number of articles that specific individuals publish (Table 3).Although these twenty authors represent only 0.8% of total author numbers,they are responsible (with co-authors 9 ), for 16% of the total number of papers inthe field. We can further tease out an author’s influence by examining thecitation index of each of her papers within the database. Alternatively, we candetermine how many papers in our database cite a specific author. ThoughTABLE 3Authors of CCA articles with accompanying number of articles in SCOPUS, number oftimes the author was cited in the SCOPUS dataset irrespective of which of the author’sarticles are cited, and the ratio of # Articles to # times cited.
