Publication year: 2011 Source: Journal of Informetrics, Volume 5, Issue 3, July 2011, Pages 369-381 Borja González-Albo, María Bordons In 2008, the type of document “proceedings paper” (PP) was assigned in the WoS database to journal articles which were initially presented at a conference and later adapted for publication in a journal. Since the use of two different labels (“article” and “proceedings paper”) might lead to infer differences in their relevance and/or quality, this paper presents a comparative study of standard journal articles and PP in journals to explore potential differences between them.
