Field-Weighted Citation Impact shows how well cited this document is when compared to similar documents. A value greater than 1.00 means the document is more cited than expected according to the average. It takes into account:

-The year of publication
-Document type, and
-Disciplines associated with its source.

The FWCI is the ratio of the document’s citations to the average number of citations received by all similar documents over a three-year window. Each discipline makes an equal contribution to the metric, which eliminates differences in researcher citation behavior.

PS: I have added screenshots of my papers record to see the FWCI that’s quite amazing which calculates the worth of each publication.

PPS: This Metrics is available to Premium Users only and being the REVEWER of Elsevier i can access such material.
