Abstract: This paper is a reply to the article -Scopus-s Source Normalized Impact perPaper SNIP versus a Journal Impact Factor based on Fractional Counting ofCitations-, published by Loet Leydesdorff and Tobias Opthof arXiv:1004.3580v2cs.DL. It clarifies the relationship between SNIP and Elsevier-s Scopus.Since Leydesdorff and Opthof-s description of SNIP is not complete, itindicates four key differences between SNIP and the indicator proposed by thetwo authors, and argues why the former is more valid than the latter.Nevertheless, the idea of fractional citation counting deserves furtherexploration. The paper discusses difficulties that arise if one attempts toapply this principle at the level of individual citing papers.
