The Mexican Conference on Pattern Recognition After Ten Editions: A Scientometric Study Chapter in Scopus uri icon


  • © 2019, Springer Nature Switzerland AG.Scientific conferences are suitable vehicles for knowledge dissemination, connecting authors, networking, and research entities. However, it is important to know the impact of a determined conference for the international research community. The main way to do this is through a scientometric study of those papers derived from the conference. Therefore, in this paper, we introduce a scientometric study taking into account all papers published in each edition of the Mexican Conference on Pattern Recognition (MCRP) as well as all the papers published in special issues derived from MCPR. Our study is based on data taken from the SCOPUS database. We have extracted and analyzed several essential keys, such as acceptance and rejection rates, number of authors and top-productive institutions, and frequency of citations by other journals, with the aim of providing the impact of the papers derived from MCPR for the international research community. From our study, we report some important findings about the impact of the MCPR conference after ten editions.
