Citation Analysis - The Basics
Citation analysis is looking at which authors use which articles as references in their own publications. It uses citation data to see the impact or assumed quality of an author, article, or journal. There are several different types of citation reports you can generate. You can see:
Scholarly impact can refer to several aspects of scholarly communication. Most commonly:
Journal Impact is the amount of times articles from a specific journal are cited combined with the number of articles that the journal publishes - this is known as the impact factor.
H-index measures scholarly impact at the author level - the amount of articles a scholar published combined with how many times those published articles are cited creates your h-index.
Eigenfactor is intended to measure the overall importance of a scientific journal. Similar to the journal impact factor, the Eigenfactor was developed to be a more robust tool, and considers how broad the journal's contribution is.
To find your h-index you must create a Google Profile and have a Gmail account. Google Scholar Citations then collects your publishing and citation information and creates your h-index. You can choose whether to make your profile Public or Private. When searching for others authors' h-index Google Scholar only gives access to authors who have created a public profile.
Altmetrics is the use of alternative, or nontraditional, measurements to better understand the extent of a work's scholarly impact. Altmetrics serve as a complement to traditional metrics (e.g., citation counts) by incorporating statistics regarding usage, capture, and mentions of scholarly works in online environments.
