IAPril: Overview of Citation Analysis

Whose articles cite a body of work? Is this a high-impact journal? How might others assess my scholarly impact? Citation analysis is one of the primary methods used to answer these questions. 

Academics, publishers, and funders often study the patterns of citations in the academic literature in order to explore the relationships among researchers, topics, and publications, and to measure the impact of articles,  journals, and individuals. 

In this two-hour workshop, we will provide an overview of citation analysis, including: sources of data for citation analysis, common impact measures, and freely available software.

Attendees of the class will be eligible for an individual consultation session to explore individual projects and questions.
