In your scholarly research, you may need to gauge the importance of a publication by counting the number of times it has been cited by other scholars. This is called citation analysis. You may also want to find all published works by a specific scholar (such as an advisor or professor).
See the Cited Reference Searching guide for information on how to view how many times a publication has been cited using tools like Web of Science, Scopus, and Google Scholar.
Research metrics attempt to show the impact, influence, and importance of researchers (authors), journals, and articles.
This guide will help you identify standard research metrics that are used to measure scholarly impact. This guide also outlines methods and tools you can use to identify journals in your field for publishing.
