Issues
•  Oldest method of measuring impact through
citations only
•  Good for science
•  Too much emphasis on the numbers by academics
• 
• 
• 
• 
Based on JCR
Measure impact to scientific community
Self-citations excluded
Includes cost-effectiveness (based on price of the
journal)
•  Includes articles, reviews and conference papers
•  Measures international collaboration
•  Uses h-index to measure productivity as well as
impact
•  Also includes JCR number (cites/doc (2y))
• 
• 
• 
• 
Still in development
Graphic representation of scholarly communication
Measures impact as well as usage
Uses interactive graphical representation of data
