JWS ranked highly in the 2014 Google Scholar Metrics data

Google has released its 2014 Google Scholar Metrics data, which estimated the visibility and influence of journals and selected conferences based on citations to articles published in 2009-2013 and indexed in Google Scholar as of mid-June 2013. The primary measure is a publication venue's h5-index, a variation on the popular h-index. Google defines a venue's h5-index as the largest number h such that h articles published in the last five years have at least h citations each. A related measure, h5-median is also computed for a venue as the median number of citations for the articles that make up its h5-index.

Journal of Web Semantics 2014 h5-index was 36 and its h5-median was 62. This puts the JWS among the top venues for the Google-defined category Databases and Information Systems as well as among the top venues whose names contain one of the words web, semantics, knowledge, intelligence or intelligent.

Here are the 36 articles that make up the JWS's h5-index for 2014.
