Abstract

In the present stage of Scientometrics indicators published are mostly incomparable, which fact impedes the development of the field and makes the users of scientometric results mistrustful. Consequently, standardization of data, methods, indicators and their presentation is urgently needed. For instance, the time periods applied should be standardized across fields and subfields in calculating citation and publication indicators.
