Abstract:Citation indexes are key tools in the science communication system for two reasons. Firstly, they are an excellent information source for searching the scientific literature since they enable navigation through links between documents represented by bibliographic references. Secondly, they allow the evaluation of the scientific production. Citations count is a usual procedure to evaluate the quality of a research paper. In Spain, this evaluation can only be carried out using tools elaborated by the ISI which have a limited coverage of journals published outside Anglo – Saxon countries. In this way, the evaluation of the Spanish scientific production is limited to works published in international journals. There is no tool for the evaluation of research (mainly in Social Sciences and Humanities) published in local journals. With the INCISO research project we will investigate the possibility of create a citation index by automatic means. The deliverable of the project will be software to automatically create citation indexes and a sample citation index for social sciences.
