Cited Reference Searching - Documenting Scholarly Impact: Home

A variety of resources on citation indexes and scholarly impact metrics.


This guide links to a variety of tools for tracking down cited references.  Other topics about scholarly impact (what are the metrics, recording social media impact) are also included.


This guide collects useful information for faculty preparing for their tenure review, or for anyone interested in citation data.  I recommend immediately investigating the Publish or Perish software for rapidly gathering citation data.


Feedback on what can be improved or what is missing is very much welcomed.
