Journal Metrics

The research contribution of journal articles may be measured in many ways including:

  • Journal quality (Official Impact Factor / appearance on ERA list¬†are two measures)
  • Coverage by abstracting services available from Ulrich's Periodicals Directory
  • Citation analysis (number of citations and analysis of citing sources e.g. who is citing your work and where, cites per paper)
  • Open access downloads
