Salgo en el ránking de los principales 30.000 autores del SSRN, no sé bien a título de qué, pues dicen que han establecido el ránking siguiendo el criterio del Eigenfactor, y ahí tengo, como se ve, una nota de cero lamentablemente, que me da un ránking por Eigenfactor de 65.521, no de los más altos ciertamente.
The author-level Eigenfactor® score is a weighted measure of an author’s citations. It adjusts for the number of authors of the paper, the number of outgoing citations from each paper citing an author’s paper and for the importance of the citing paper. All self citations are eliminated in calculating an author’s Eigenfactor® score. The score reported in the SSRN ranking tables is calculated from SSRN citation data only. To understand how this importance-weighting works, consider the following iterated voting procedure:
"Each author begins with a single vote and passes it on, dividing the vote proportionally based on those authors whom she cites. In other words, if she cites two authors -- author A one time and author B two times -- she would distribute 1/3 of her vote to author A and 2/3 of her vote to author B. After one round of this procedure, some authors will receive more votes than others. In the second round, each author passes on her current vote total, as received in the previous round, again dividing this quantity equally among those authors whom she cites. This process is iterated indefinitely. Eventually, we reach a steady state in which each author receives an unchanging number of votes in each round. An author’s Eigenfactor® score is the percentage of the total votes that she receives at this steady state."
