This page contains a random collection of charts and tables summarizing acceptance rates and bibliometric indicators for conferences and journals in Computer Science.

The data displayed in these charts are extracted from multiple sources, including:

The full dataset displayed in the charts is available here.

The charts are interactive:

- You can hover over the points to see the acronyms of the conferences/journals
- You can zoom in by selecting a region in a chart
- You can select the data series shown in a chart by clicking on the labels in the legends

This graph plots the citations per article of each conference versus the average conference acceptance rate. The acceptance rates is averaged over the years for which acceptance rates are available.

The shape and color of each point encodes the ranking of the conference according to the ERA 2010 Ranking and according to the X-Ranking. Initially, only the ERA 2010 ranking of each conference is shown. Click on the "X-Rank" label in order to view the X-Ranking of each conference.

It can be observed from the graph that A-ranked conferences are clearly distinguishable from B and C-ranked conferences, while it is difficult to discriminate between B and C conferences based on the metrics plotted here.

This graph plots the total number of citations to articles of each conference versus the average conference acceptance rate. The acceptance rates is averaged over the years for which acceptance rates are available.

It can be observed from the graph that A-ranked conferences are clearly distinguishable from B and C-ranked conferences (higher total number of citations and higher citations per paper). Meanwhile, it is difficult to discriminate between B and C conferences based on the metrics plotted here.

A point in this scatter plot represents a conference (or a journal). The x-coordinate value represents the diversity of the conference, and the y-coordinate value is the number of citations per paper at the conference (according to the Citeseer database).

Diversity is measured in terms of the "average distance" between pairs of authors who have published in the conference/journal at least once over the lifetime of the conference/journal. The distance between two authors is computed as the length of the shortest-path between two authors. For example, if two authors have co-authored a paper (in any conference or journal), they have a distance of one. If they have never published together but have co-authored a paper with the same person, they have a distance of two and so on. The intuition behind this measure of diversity is that venues where the publishing authors are more closely related to one another in the co-authorship graph will have a lower diversity.

ANOVA analysis shows that venues with higher Citation Count Per Paper (CCPP) have statistically lower diversity than venues with average or low CCPP. See this technical note for an explanation.

A point in this scatter plot represents a conference (or a journal). The x-coordinate value represents the diversity of the conference as defined above. The y-coordinate value is the total number of papers published in this venue (throughout the lifetime of the venue) according to the Citeseer database).
