原始语种摘要: Abstract(#br)We introduce a new centrality index for bipartite networks of papers and authors that we call K -index. The K -index grows with the citation performance of the papers that cite a given researcher and can be seen as a measure of scientific social recognition. Indeed, the K -index measures the number of hubs, defined in a self-consistent way in the bipartite network, that cites a given author. We show that the K -index can be computed by simple inspection of the Web of Science platform and presents several advantages over other centrality indexes, in particular Hirsch h -index. The K -index is robust to self-citations, is not limited by the total number of papers published by a researcher as occurs for the h -index and can distinguish in a consistent way researchers that have...
