Citation Impact

Citation is the process of acknowledging or citing the author and title of a source (journal, book, or other) used in a published work. Such citations can be counted as measures of the usage and impact of the cited work. Measures derived from citation analysis include citation counts for:

  • an individual article (how often it was cited)
  • an author (total citations, or average citation count per article)
  • a journal (average citation count for the articles in the journal)
