Should I verify my Abstracts?

Yes, we recommend that you verify your publications of all document types. You do not have to worry that abstracts, corrections and other document types will affect your citation indicators, such as the field normalized citation score. Such indicators are only calculated on the document types Articles and Reviews, and in some cases also Letters and Notes.

In all bibliometric analyses at Karolinska Institutet we make certain that verifying a publication should not negatively affect the individual researchers results. One way of achieving this is for example to only use the five or fifteen publications with the highest indicator values when calculating averages.
