    An integrated model for ranking scientific publications together with authors and journals recently presented in [Bini, Del Corso, Romani,ETNA 2008]is closely analyzed. The model, which relies on certain adjacency matrices $H,K$ and $F$ obtained from the relations of citation,authorship and publication, provides the ranking by means of the Perron vector of a stochastic matrix obtained by combining $H,K$ and $F$. Some perturbation theorems concerning the Perron vector previously introduced by the authors are extended to more general cases and a counterexample to a property previously addressed by the authors is presented. The theoretical results confirm the consistency and effectiveness of our model. Some paradigmatic examples are reported together with some results obtained on a real set of data.
