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.

Finding Journal Impact in Google Scholar

Google Scholar Metrics provides journal impact information including the h-index and related factors calculated from Google Scholar citation data for some journals. It lists the top 100 overall journals in several languages, and the top 20 in various fields and sub-fields. It does not provide a ranking for every journal.

For more information about how Google Scholar metrics are calculated, see the About Google Scholar Metrics page.
