William J Browne - Citations

An increasingly important part of an academics profile is how widely their research is cited. Sites now exist such as ResearcherID where an academic can collate their (Web of Science) journal articles and in fact I have a ResearcherID record here . ResearcherID uses only journal articles that are cited in Web of Science and so if like me you have some non-standard research outputs like computer software, books or make the mistake of publishing in early editions of new journals you will have outputs that do not appear in a standard search but can appear in a cited reference search. Such searches have to be carefully performed as the method of citing the piece of work is often not unique. The purpose of this page is for me to collate all my work on one page. Below the work is included in citation number order. Note that the links to articles were accurate in May 2011 but may now be out of date and not contain the most recent citing articles.

A user's guide to MLwiN manual

Note this is the official User Guide for MLwiN and has gone through several incarnations. The cited reference search for USers Guide ML* gives 180 different reference patterns for different years, spellings etc. (note this doesn't quite find all refs but the use of 2 wildcards has been removed in WoN) with the most popular being to the original Goldstein et al. (1998) with 305, 2 variants of Rasbash et al. (2000) with 245 and 174, Rasbash et al. (2004) with 211 and Rasbash et al. (2005) with 100 giving a total of 1,810 citations.

2. Rasbash, J., Charlton, C., Browne, W.J., Healy, M. and Cameron, B. (2009) MLwiN Version 2.1. Centre for Multilevel Modelling, University of Bristol.

The software is perhaps trickier to collate the cited reference search for MLwi* gives 215 reference patterns. Some of these are actually for the manual and so should be in total above and some are for Min Yangs macro manual and should be discounted. Doing this results in a total of 477 citations
