Measuring Your Research Impact


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.

Citation Counts: Who Cites My Work

The databases listed below provide a count of all the times a scholar's works have been cited. As always, the count is based only on those journals that are indexed in the resource.
