• Publications in 2019

The Research is one of the main issues in Ingenium Group. The publications show the productivity, and they are employed to protect the intellectual property of the research work done. This report shows and analyses the publications in 2019 and over the last years.

Ingenium has published 27 research works in 2019. Figure 1 shows the publications in 2019. The number of the research papers published in journals, 15, has increased regarding to 2018, 8, being 9 papers published in Journals catalogued into the Journal Citation Report (JCR). JRC employs InCites, a customized citation-based research analytics tool on the Web that enables you to evaluate institutional productivity and benchmark your output against peers worldwide. Based on Impact Factor (IF) data, the JCR published by Thomson Reuters provides yearly rankings of science and social science journals, in the subject categories relevant for the journal (in fact, there may be more than one). Quartile rankings are therefore derived for each journal in each of its subject categories according to which quartile of the IF distribution the journal occupies for that subject category. Q1 denotes the top 25% of the IF distribution, Q2 for middle-high position (between top 50% and top 25%), Q3 middle-low position (top 75% to top 50%), and Q4 the lowest position (bottom 25% of the IF distribution).

In 2019, 8 papers were published in Q1 (Reliability Engineering and System Safety (2), Applied Energy, Renewable Energy (2), Wind Energy(2) and Measurement), 1-Q2 (Energies). 4 papers were published in other journals, most of them published in International Conferences (NDT.net, Ingeniería del Mantenimiento and AEND). It can be concluded that quality of the journals where the papers have been accepted has increased regarding to previous years, and the number of research papers have decreased, specially Q1, being 8 where the maximum was 4 in 2016.

2 international books have been published in 2018, edited in IGI Global and Springer, ones of the most important editorials in the worldwide. This number will be increased in 2020, considering editorials as Elsevier, Springer, Intech and IGI.

3 chapter books has been also published in Springer and IGI. The number of chapter books is estimated to be increased in 2019.

Ingenium has presented the main advances in the most relevant International conferences, e.g. “13th International Conference on Industrial Engineering and Industrial Management XXIII Congreso de Ingeniería de Organización”, “13th International Conference on Management Science and Engineering Management”, “AEND Vitoria-Gasteiz 2019”, “ICREEP 2019”, “ISFESID 2019”, “The 3rd International Conference on Applied Automation and Industrial Diagnostics,ICAAID19”,… publishing a total of 7 conference papers.

The research and development activities has been done accomplished through more-effective products, processes, services, technologies, or business models that are readily available to markets, governments and society. The innovation activities of Ingenium has produces 1 patents, that are being evaluated by the Spanish Patent and Trademark Office.

  • Publications over the time

Ingenium has published a total of 306 publications, see Figure 2.

Ingenium has showed the main scientific advances in the most important conferences, e.g. IEEE, IFORS, ICMSEM, CM, RENEW, AREMA, APMOD, E2KM, CIO, ECMS, ICAM, ICISM, RCM, SAFEPROCESS, WCCM, ICREPQ,… presenting 100 conference papers.

The research group has been published 29 books in the most important editorials, Elsevier, Springer, Pearson, Mc-GrawHill, IGI, Intech, Nova Science, AlfaOmega, Marcombo, ProQuest, Academia Española, UCLM, etc. Ingenium has published also 61 international chapter books in these editorials.

The innovation tasks done in Ingenium together with the industry has produced 6 patents, 1 International and 5 Nationals, and 1 is under revision.

Figure 3 shows the publication productions over the time. The production has been rising from 2002 to date. The peaks are produced by the delay of the editorials to publish the research works, e.g. research papers written in 2019 will be published in 2020. The number of publications has been increasing from 2016. The references generated regarding to Scopus have been increasing from 2002. The references in 2019 are subjected to some updates from Scopus, being estimated, considering the references updates from previous years, around 30, i.e. more than 470 in 2019.

Figure 3. Publications over the time

The main interest has been focused in journal research papers, where 107 journal papers have been published, being 50 in JCR journals (Q1: 32; Q2; 13; Q3: 4; Q4: 1). Figure 4 shows the journal papers over the time, where the research papers are being published in the most important journals, e.g.  Renewable & Sustainable Energy Reviews,  Reliability Engineering & System Safety, Journal of Cleaner Production, Renewable Energy, Applied Energy,  International Journal of Production Research,  Computers & Industrial Engineering,  Mechanical Systems and Signal Processing,  Annals of Operations Research,  European Journal of Operational Research, Wear, Smart Structures and Systems, Structural Health Monitoring,  Quality Engineering, Engineering Failure Analysis,  Global NEST Journal, Acta Acustica United with Acustica, Energies, Maintenance and Reliability,  International Journal of Systems Science, Logistics and Transportation Review, Quality and Reliability Engineering International, Measurement, Journal of Rail and Rapid Transit, International Journal of Advanced Manufacturing Technology, etc.  It has been also published 57 journal papers that are not considered in JCR, most of them from International Conferences.
