Citation Tracking (CT) looks at the number of times that a particular author or article has been cited (aka referenced) in the bibliographies of other works. Large numbers are associated with greater impact and influence.
In this Challenge, you’ll discover how to determine article and author level citation counts on Web of Science and Google Scholar.
This session will be lead by Sally Taylor, Reference Librarian, Woodward Library.
The Research Impact Challenges Bank is a set of simple online activities to help you learn and apply concepts about building your online academic profile, connecting with other researchers, keeping informed of research, discoverability and access to resources, and research metrics & analysis.
