To take into account the different bibliometric features of science fields and the different size of both the set evaluated and the set used as reference standard, two new impact indicators are introduced. The Percentage Rank Position (PRP) indicator relates the ordinal rank position of the article assessed to the total number of papers in the publishing journal. The publications in the publishing journal are ranked by citation frequency. The Relative Elite Rate (RER) indicator relates the number of citations obtained by the article assessed to the mean citation rate of the papers in the elite set of the publishing journal. The indices are calculated preferably from the data of publications in the elite set of individuals, teams, institutes or countries. The elite set of papers is calculated by the equation: P(v) = (10logP)-10, where P is the total number of papers. The means of the corresponding indicators may be applied for comparing the eminence of publication sets across fields.
