Adam Finch

Abstract:

This chapter details the various methods of evaluating the impact of published research, with a particular focus on citations. The chapter gives an overview of the difficulties of measuring research impact and the solutions and controversies of citation analysis, then goes on to look at the indices that record citations between articles and the metrics that these data feed into. Also discussed are publishers’ approaches to improving journal impact, various recent developments in citation analysis, such as the influences of early view and open access, and author metrics.
