Swe-SE-SCI

Navigating the academic Swedish software engineering landscape can be difficult. As a Swedsoft activity, I created Swe-SE-SCI to list all Swedish Software Engineering (SE) scholars with permanent positions at Swedish non-profit research organizations. The ambition is to maintain an index of all Swedish SE scholars with first-authored publications in SCI-listed SE journals, i.e., “SSS scholars”. Swe-SE-SCI mines DBLP publication lists to identify typical research topics of Swedish SE research organizations and apparent research interests of SSS scholars.

A reliable and updated index of academic SE in Sweden could bring several benefits. The primary goal is to constitute a gateway for industry to find expertise among researchers – hopefully supporting knowledge transfer, industry-academia collaboration, and more relevant research. Swe-SE-SCI can also be used to find academic partners in new research projects and suitable PhD committee members.

Affiliations are ranked by the number of first-authored SCI publications by SSS scholars. Individual SSS scholars are ranked by their SSS rating – our in-house metric. In contrast to non-decreasing citation-based metrics, the SSS rating fluctuates as it promotes active research with a focus to publish in SCI-listed SE journals. A detailed description is available at the bottom of this page.

June 2020 – Swe-SE-SCI

The Swe-SE-SCI index shows that the top-5 SE research organizations are BTH, Chalmers/Gothenburg, Lund University, RISE, and KTH.

Looking at individual SSS scholars, familiar full professors top the list. We also find some new names in Sweden (Felderer and Baudry) as well as some emerging top scholars.

June update: Somewhat delayed as a new name disambiguation was required. DBLP also modified a journal abbreviation. Minor changes, but some new co-authored SCI-listed papers.

Detailed information

The source code used to calculate the data and generate the tables is available as open source on GitHub. The main ideas are the following:

  • Publication data are extracted from the manually curated DBLP. Publications that are not indexed by DBLP are not considered. Also, arXiv publications and Software Engineering Notes are removed.
  • Prof. Robert Feldt’s list of SCI-listed SE journals is used to determine the SCI status. This means that the magazines IEEE SW, IEEE Computer, and CACM are excluded.
  • SCI ratio is the fraction of a scholar’s papers that are publications in SCI-listed journals. We do not filter out introduction sections to special issues etc.
  • 1st ratio is the fraction of a scholar’s first-authorships.
  • SSS rating is calculated as the total number of publications multiplied by the weighted harmonic mean between the SCI-ratio and the 1st ratio, where the SCI-ratio is weighted twice as important as the 1st ratio. The SSS ratio can both increase and decrease, thus it is a more interesting metric to follow over time – SCI ratio emphasizes a quality focus (as opposed to paper inflation) and 1st ratio values active research (rather than management and supervision). I like the SSS rating as it indicates how prolific scholars are, but it also deteriorates by unrestrained co-authorships.
  • SSS contrib. is (just like the H-index) a non-decreasing number calculated as 1*SCI-listed first-authorships + 0.1*SCI-listed co-authorships + 0.01*other publications. This metric is useful if you don’t like the ideas of the fluctuating SSS rating.
  • The apparent research interests of individual SSS scholars is calculated by listing the most used terms in the titles of all first-authored publications. A manually curated stop-word list is used in the preprocessing.
  • The research topics of affiliations are calculated using topic modeling (LDA) with the paper titles of first-authored publications of SSS scholars as input. The number of topics and terms per topic are based on the total number of words in the input.

FAQ

Q: Isn’t there enough focus on rankings and lists already?

A. Yes, but let’s do this anyway. The main purpose of the Swe-SE-SCI index is to help navigate the expertise among academic SE scholars in Sweden. The index must be ordered in some way, and it turns into gamification no matter what metric you choose. My original idea was actually to embrace gamification even more by providing achievements in the form of badges.

Q: But there are other prestigious publications venues as well! Feldt’s list doesn’t cover everything. Why don’t you include the SCI-listed journal X?

A. There are indeed other great journals that publish amazing research. However, Feldt’s list is carefully curated for software engineering, I couldn’t do a better job myself.

Q: Shouldn’t you properly acknowledge ICSE publications? Now it’s valued just like a minor research workshop.

A: No. While ICSE is a highly competitive and prestigious venue, it is already recognized enough. I like journal publications and I prefer incentives to redirect paper submissions away from conferences.

Q: Why don’t you include PhD students and postdocs? They also publish great journal papers.

A: True, but I need to select a sustainable scope. As soon as the PhD student gets a permanent position in Sweden I will be happy to add her/him. Also, the main purpose of SWE-SE-SCI is to index expertise in Sweden – scholars with permanent positions are likely to be appropriate contact persons for industry. The SSS scholars can of course, in turn, recommend other internal experts.

Q: Being a co-author to help others is a supportive thing to do. Doesn’t the 1st ratio discourage collaboration? Supervisors get penalized by the SSS ratio.

A: Writing papers together is a great thing to do and what really makes SE research fun. However, the average number of authors on papers is growing – a metric that encourages scholars to think twice before putting her/his name on a paper is a good counter-balance. Supervision is certainly another great thing in research, but it’s not the job for Swe-SE-SCI to highlight.

Q: Software engineering is a multidisciplinary topic, thus considering only a few SCI-listed journals is a problem. Can’t you see that great scholars with plenty of other SCI-listed publications are undervalued?

A: Yes, but Swe-SE-SCI doesn’t try to rank scholars based on their research greatness. Swe-SE-SCI is mainly focusing on contributions in core SE journals. This index is for SE in Sweden, others are welcome to maintain lists for related areas such as computer science, information systems, enterprise architecture, artificial intelligence… the code is available on GitHub. And yes, some senior SSS scholars focusing on other topics might appear surprisingly low on the lists. They might be great researchers, but they apparently don’t focus on SE.

Q: Why don’t you include any open access journals? You support the old broken academic publication system.

A: I include the SCI-listed journals selected by Prof. Feldt. There are open access journals on the SCI “emerging list” such as e-Informatica Software Engineering Journal. I look forward to including such open access journals when they are upgraded to the “extended list”.
