## mean self-citation rate

The mean self-citation rate is the average rate of self-citation for an author across all of their publications. It differs from the total self-citation rate in that the total is based on the ratio of the sums while the average is based on the sums of the ratios.

$$\bar{S_r}=\frac{1}{P}\sum\limits_{i=1}^{P}{\frac{s_i}{C_i}}$$
