Research Impact Metrics
An Overview of Metrics
Research impact indicators can be quantitative or qualitative. However, research impact metrics are quantitative and are diverse. Examples include citation-based metrics, such as citation counts, the h-index, the Journal Impact Factor, and normalized citation metrics, such as the Field-Weighted Citation Impact from Scopus. Normalized metrics allow you to compare citation impact across disciplines or fields, document type, and publication year.
