Influence mapping based on research disciplines

The methodology of influence mapping was described in this article, however as some users were curious about the broad groupings of scholarly articles per research disciplines, here we provide more details.

The International Centre for the registration of serial publications or the International Standard Serial Number (ISSN) Center oversees that each publication has a 8 digit code that represents a journal or a newspaper, etc…The ISSN code is associated with the title of a publication and indicative of a research discipline category. So, in our study, we used the ISSN codes, provided in the Crossref public application programming interface, and categorized all resolved scholarly articles in the institutional datasets and then grouped these further into nine distinct research disciplines plus one group for all unassigned articles: Life Sciences, Chemistry & Materials, Physics & Electronics, Mechanical & Civil Engineering, Communications & IT, Social Sciences, Math, Earth Sciences, and Others (see below for a detailed list of grouped categories).

Within each discipline group, total articles, third-party-citing patents weighted by family and the In4M metrics were determined.  Then we performed normalization within each discipline group to calculate and compare institutions based on a relative In4M metric.
