Cherkasov, V.N. Is it still possible to establish the rating? (Some thoughts on the monograph by Y. A. Shumilov. Introduction into legal scientometrics.

Published in journal "National Security / nota bene", 2013-6 in rubric "Academic life", pages 151-160.

Resume: The problem of establishing the rating of a scientist has both scientific and practical dimensions. This approach is used to establish (mostly in other states, but lately in Russia as well) the level of journals, quality of article published in them, funding for the research, employee evaluation, their hiring in monitoring. Taking into account these criteria, the activities of the higher education institutions and scientific research institutes is evaluated, and decisions are made of whether specific institutions should exist or not. The article contains critical analysis of the negative features of the method used for establishing the rating by the author of the monograph and also by some scientific electronic resources, and some practical examples are provided. The author proposes to take measures in order to improve the method for rating calculation by involving some additional markers. The author substantiates the need to include correcting coefficients, and provides a new formula for rating calculation. Since currently the rating is mostly based upon a single criterion citedness, the author offers a number of additional markers, such as number of publication (with the corrective coefficients offered by the author), the edition size, impact-factor, presence of works of the author in the Internet, number of views and downloads of his works. It may be considered that the use of the above-mentioned calculation methods shall considerably improve the authenticity of ratings.

Keywords: rating, marker, coefficient, impactfactor, Hirsch index, Internet, list of journals indexed, Russian Science Citation Index, scientific electronic library, Dissernet.
