Abstract:This thesis presents a look into citation counts as a measure for scientific impact which in turn is used to determine the replication value (RV). first, by comparing citation sources (WoS, Crossref, Scopus and Scite) from which citation counts can be retrieved. Secondly, by removing contradicting citations from the citation count, and comparing this new citation count without contradicting citations with the original total citation count.

scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and understand research articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by students researchers from around the world and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
