This paper reviews standard ranking aggregation approaches in bibliometric analysis. These include the arithmetic and the harmonic mean. We also present two less-well known aggregation schemes, lexicographic and graphicolexic, which are based on the order of the rankings. Finally, we introduce two recently proposed ranking aggregation approaches which are based on stochastic aggregation. We describe all approaches and give a small illustrative and an empirical example to highlight the differences.
