Research Impact/Bibliometrics

This guide provides an introduction to using Web of Science, Scopus and other resources to determine journal impact, individual researcher impact, and article impact.

Introduction

Researchers are often interested in determining the impact of a journal or their individual research impact. The impact of research is usually assessed for three different areas: the impact of a journal as a whole, the impact of an individual researcher or group of researchers, and the impact of a specific research output, such as an article or a book chapter.
