Google Scholar Metrics for Publications Most researchers are familiar with well-established journals and conferences in their field. They are often less familiar with newer publications or publications in related fields - there're simply too many! Today, we’re introducing Google Scholar Metrics: an easy way for authors to quickly gauge the visibility and influence of recent articles in scholarly publications. To get started, you can browse the top 100 publications in several languages, ordered by their five-year h-index and h-median metrics. You can also search for publications by words in their titles.

AAAAH! Publish or Perish Are you applying for tenure, promotion or a new job? Do you want to include evidence of the impact of your research? Is your work cited in journals which are not ISI listed? Then you might want to try Publish or Perish, designed to help individual academics to present their case for research impact to its best advantage. Version: 4.17.0 (18 June 2015)

Eighth version, 20 December 2008. Introduction How to reach a wider audience for your research In today’s age of knowledge abundance, the scholarly community is turning its attention to the use of social media channels and other online platforms. Scholars have been increasingly integrating these tools into their everyday work, creating enormous potential to capture the digital traces of their research. Not surprisingly, then, in recent years academics have shown a growing interest in non-traditional ways of evaluating their scholarly ‘impact’. These altmetrics, short for alternative metrics, allow researchers to gauge the impact and reach of their research in the social web beyond traditional citation counting. Here we offer practical advice on how to make the most of the opportunities provided by altmetrics.

Scientific journals - rankings / Links / Welcome - CEFAGE Journal Citation Reports presents quantifiable statistical data that provides a systematic, objective way to evaluate the world's leading journals and their impact and influence in the global research community. SNIP (Source Normalized Impact per Paper) and SJR (SCImago Journal Rank) are both powered by SCOPUS and offer the value of context in the world of citations. The SCImago Journal & Country Rank is a portal that includes the journals and country scientific indicators developed from the information contained in the SCOPUS database. Eigenfactor ranks journals much as Google ranks websites. Scholarly references join journals together in a vast network of citations. Eigenfactor uses the structure of the entire network (instead of purely local citation information) to evaluate the importance of each journal.
Qualitative Methods Qualitative Methods Author(s): Ada Cattaneo The paper presents a qualitative method used to find and analyze social, cultural, emotional, psychological factors in experiencing leather. The proceeding phases are five. Journal Citation Reports Journal Citation Reports® offers a systematic, objective means to critically evaluate the world's leading journals, with quantifiable, statistical information based on citation data. By compiling articles' cited references, JCR helps to measure research influence and impact at the journal and category levels, and shows the relationship between citing and cited journals. Now offered on the InCites platform, JCR allows you to access and explore the underlying data that informs JCR metrics from article keywords to citation thresholds. This expanded capability lets you conduct analysis and comparisons of citation relationships across journals and categories over time. You can even localize your analysis to understand publishing practices within your organization.
Responsible use of metrics 1. Preamble Loughborough University is proud of its achievements in research to date and has ambitious plans for the future in line with the ‘Building Excellence’ strategy. The quality of our research clearly affects the academic, social, economic and environmental impact it has. Maximising the visibility of our research is equally important to delivering that impact and bibliometric indicators are currently attracting much attention in these regards. FQS - Forum Qualitative Sozialforschung / Forum: Qualitative Social Research FQS is a peer-reviewed multilingual online journal for qualitative research established in 1999. FQS thematic issues are published tri-annually. In addition, selected individual contributions and contributions to the journal's regular features FQS Reviews, FQS Debates, FQS Conferences and FQS Interviews are published as soon as they have undergone peer review. FQS is an open-access journal, so all articles are available free of charge. Please register if you are interested in receiving information about new publications once they are posted online.
Four reasons to stop caring so much about the h-index. The h-index attempts to measure the productivity and impact of the published work of scholar. But reducing scholarly work to a number in this way has significant limitations. Stacy Konkiel highlights four specific reasons the h-index fails to capture a complete picture of research impact. Furthermore, there are a variety of new altmetrics tools out there focusing on how to measure the influence of all of a researcher’s outputs, not just their papers. Time to discard the metric that decides how science is rated Scientists, like other professionals, need ways to evaluate themselves and their colleagues. These evaluations are necessary for better everyday management: hiring, promotions, awarding grants and so on. One evaluation metric has dominated these decisions, and that is doing more harm than good. This metric, called the journal impact factor or just impact factor, and released annually, counts the average number of times a particular journal’s articles are cited by other scientists in subsequent publications over a certain period of time. The upshot is that it creates a hierarchy among journals, and scientists vie to get their research published in a journal with a higher impact factor, in the hope of advancing their careers. The trouble is that impact factor of journals where researchers publish their work is a poor surrogate to measure an individual researcher’s accomplishments.
