Confidence and RISC: How Russian papers indexed in the national citation database Russian Index of Science Citation (RISC) characterize universities and research institutes

P. 1328-1338.
Akoev M., Moskaleva O., Pislyakov V.

We find that evaluation of research activity by RISC Core publications is good for all types of Russian universities and prevents different misleading practices with data manipulation in RISC like uploading to database poorly cited and viewed article collections and proceedings of student conferences via Science Index. On the other hand, Science Index is a useful instrument for correction of errors in database and linkage of missing references, so using of RISC Core for research assessment of Russian universities and research institutions can help to use it in proper way for enhancing the data quality in Russian Index of Science Citation.
