Abstract

SIGAPS is a bibliometric software tool developed in France to identify and analyze Medline-indexed publications that are produced by a researcher or research group. This measurement takes into account the author's ranking on the paper along with the journal's prestige according to its impact factor within the research field. However, use of this impact factor is the primary limitation of SIGAPS. SIGAPS analysis results are used to assign a financial value to hospital facilities. The impact of the journal Revue de Chirurgie Orthopédique and its successor-Orthopaedics & Traumatology: Surgery & Research-was compared using the Medline-based ISI (SIGAPS) and SCOPUS-based SCImago journal rankings.
