What does “relevance” mean in the table?
It refers to the level of association between a journal being listed and the concept it is listed under, from 0-100.

How do you count total number of citations?
The citations represent the times that works have cited papers under this journal. In our case, we obtain this data from OpenAlex, an open catalog of scholarly papers.
