Abstract

This article argues that despite a citation review is a rarely used research tool, this can be very useful to assess the impact of new research topics, both from the future research direction and the bibliometric perspectives. An explorative study is presented around the research area marked as Industry 4.0 with the conference paper mentioned in the title of this citation review. Even though the given reference paper is relatively recent, there are already twenty-seven citations listed among three different scholar databases. These are Google Scholar, ResearchGate and Semantic Scholar. In light of this, the article provides a bibliometric confirmation and analysis for the progression of the line of research adopted by de Giorgio et al. in the exploration of non-traditional methods using virtual reality technology and human-robot collaboration for adaptive applications in Industry 4.0. Furthermore, it represents a model for the authors’ self-development and an example of an unconventional approach to scientific work that may help improve related bibliometric research and scholar database strategies to index new articles and topics in the future.

Comment by the editor: We are receiving by far more manuscripts than we can consider, we are forced to select only those manuscripts which are of major interest to our readers. The results presented in the present study might be of interest for the research community of the topic under study itself but the study does not add new insights to the field of scientometrics. Therefore, we are unable to consider this time your manuscript for publication.
We duly hope that you will think of Scientometrics when making publication plans for your future papers.

Comment: Dear Dr. de Giorgio,

Thank you for submitting your manuscript to Journal of Informetrics. I regret to inform you that your paper has been declined for publication in the journal. The material you submitted doesn’t have sufficient novelty and would perhaps be more suitable for a different journal. We encourage you to find another venue for your work and wish you success.

I would like to thank you for giving me the opportunity to consider your work. Although a negative decision was reached for this submission, I hope that you will consider again the Journal of Informetrics as the preferred venue of your future work.

Kind regards,    
Mu-hsuan Huang
