Ranking Scheme (beta version)

This ranking system applies a publication counting based criterion, and assumes that every scholar or institution contributes equally in each publication. Different publication venues are assigned to different weights to make the importance of each publication be accounted.

In detail, the selected leading journals and conferences and their weights are as follows:

  • TSE, IEEE Transactions on Software Engineering (3.0)
  • TOSEM, ACM Transactions on Software Engineering and Methodology (3.0)
  • JSS, Journal of Systems and Software (1.8)
  • IST, Information and Software Technology (1.8)
  • ESEM, Empirical Software Engineering (1.8)
  • STVR, Software Testing, Verification and Reliability (1.8)

  • ICSE, International Conference on Software Engineering (2.5)
  • FSE, International Symposium on the Foundations of Software Engineering, (2.5)
  • ASE, International Conference on Automated Software Engineering (1.5)
  • ISSTA, International Symposium on Software Testing and Analysis (1.5)
  • ISSRE, International Symposium on Software Reliability Engineering (1.5)
  • ICSM, International Conference on Software Maintenance (1.5)

The final weighted score of each scholar or institution is calculated as follows, where #A indicates the number of named papers published in venue A:

Score = (#TSE + #TOSEM) * 3.0 + (#JSS + #IST + #ESEM + #STVR) * 1.8 + (#ICSE + #FSE) * 2.5 + (#ISSTA + #ASE + #ISSRE + #ICSM) * 1.5 + #Other * 0.8

Note that this ranking system remains in a beta version and under development.
