Q: How can I get information about paper rank and statistician?

Detailed Question -

One study looked at the impact of statisticians on paper rank. Wonder if there are any websites where you can search whether the author is a statistician, with SCI factors (citations) and so on. Or a site to check whether statisticians are involved? Or a site to check the rank of papers?

Thank you for your question. There doesn't seem to be any open-access tools/websites that offer details on research paper ranking. However, you can determine journal ranking, h-index, and where a certain journal stands in comparison to other journals from the same field through Scimago Journal and Country Rank (https://www.scimagojr.com/index.php). Here’s an example of Chemical Reviews by ACS: https://www.scimagojr.com/journalsearch.php?q=23340&tip=sid&clean=0.

To determine whether statisticians were involved in a particular study, you can check the acknowledgement section of the published study. In most cases, authors acknowledge any external help they sought for their study. To determine if the author is a statistician, you can check their affiliation or write to the author for further details.
