Bibliometric Resources:

  • PlumX Metrics (Library Resource) – Search your article/author in ArticlesPlus and see the PlumX Metric for each record. Information includes: number of Tweets, other social media shares, link outs (AKA people who have created a link to your article), abstract views, etc.
  • Google Scholar Citations (Free) – Google Scholar Citations provide a simple way for authors to keep track of citations to their articles. You can check who is citing your publications, graph citations over time, and compute several citation metrics. You can also make your profile public, so that it may appear in Google Scholar results when people search for your name.
  • Web of Science (Library Resource) – Journal Citation Report

Research Impact Resources:

  • ORCID– An open, non-profit, research community-led initiative that provides a registry of unique researcher identifiers and a transparent method of linking research activities and outputs to these identifiers. You will have to register for an ORCID I.D. number.
  • ResearcherID is the identifier that has been implemented by Thomson Reuters, the company that develops Web of Science. Having a ResearcherID makes it easy for researchers to input all their publications into Web of Science. ResearcherID is working with ORCID. You can search ResearcherID to find collaborators, review publication lists and explore how research is used around the world.
