Measuring Your Research Impact

What Are Article or Citation Level Metrics

Article Level Metrics help establish the impact of an individual article.
The most common way of measuring the impact of an article is to count the number of times it is cited in other articles.

As always, the count is based only on those journals that are indexed in the resource.
