Citation Reports and the H-Index

Use citation reports to track research output and citation activity for authors and institutions, see publication and citation trends in a topic area, and examine second generation citations to gauge indirect impact.

Impact Factors

The impact factor measures the influence or importance of an academic journal, based on the average number of citations to articles and other citable items.  Citable items may include letters or other material which constitute a contribution to the literature. For more information please see the presentation produced by Thomson Reuters about impact factors, how they are calculated, and how to find them using Journal Citation Reports.
