May 1, 2013 Assess your Research Impact:
How to use Bibliometrics outline 1. What is this all about?
2. The view from:
journal level
author level
article level
3. Limitations
4. Best strategy what is this all about? author identification ResearcherID (www.researcherid.com)
ORCID (orcid.org) author level h-index (Hirsch index): a calculated ratio of the number of articles published and the number of times they have been cited. An h-index of 10 means the researcher has 10 articles each of which has been cited at least 10 times. Many variations.   your (real) Impact Factor journal level 1. Open Access:
Material that is made freely accessible at the point of use 2. Impact Factor:
Ratio of articles published to articles cited during a rolling two-year window
Used to evaluate the relative importance of a journal
Tool: Journal Citation Reports (JCR) from Thomson Reuters ISI Web of Knowledge database Tools: Sherpa Romeo: information about what publishers allow in repositories (http://www.sherpa.ac.uk/romeo/)
Sources of gold open access: DoAJ (http://www.doaj.org/)
Sources of green open access: Laurier's Scholars Commons (scholars.wlu.ca) eprints (http://www.eprints.org/) Arxiv (http://arxiv.org/)
PubMed Central Canada (http://pubmedcentralcanada.ca/pmcc/) 3. ScImago Journal and Country Rank (SJR):
Calculation of the average 'prestige per paper" of a journal. Algorithm uses weighted citations over a three-year window. Data taken from Elsevier's SCOPUS database.
Tool: http://www.scimagojr.com 4. Eigenfactor:
Calculation algorithm based on Google Page Ranking. The Eigenfactor Score (ES) is an indication of the importance of a journal to the community. It uses a five-year window. Article Influence Score (AIS) measures how articles influence the whole journal and is similar to impact factor. The same data is used for calculating impact factor.
Tool: http://eigenfactor.org/ (check out their 'gender' page) Bibliometrics: Methods to quantify texts and information. Tools:
SCOPUS (Elsevier) database
Web of Science (Thomson Reuters) database

Scholarometer (http://scholarometer.indiana.edu/)
Scholar H-index Calculator (Firefox add on) article level Article-Level Metrics (ALM): aggregated variety of data used to quantify the socialization and immediacy of an article's impact usage
captures (eg. into Mendeley)
social media
citations Providers
Public Library of Science (PLoS)
Nature Publishing Group (NPG)
BioMed Central problems with data   ISI Accuracy? problems with authors? citation manipulation review articles are more highly cited
editorial influence
citation clubs and/or bartering
publication type
where are the books?
review articles more highly cited
are editorials/correspondence used in the calculation?
journal size
ISI/SCOPUS coverage of journals
discipline bias - scholarly communication
publish with the famous
"malicious actors"
citation errors - bad stuff is cited too   best strategy? what are you using bibliometrics for? European Science Foundation Standing Committee on for the Humanities
