Citation Indices

Major databases to look for citations include:

  • Web of Science (Thomson Reuters)
  • SCOPUS
  • Google Scholar

The ResearchID website is also a good way to collect author citations. SCImago journal & country rank is another database that can be reviewed.

The Web of Science database not only allows a researcher to search for their own publications and how many times each has been cited but also provides a range of journal measures. For instance, consider the following journal data collected below:
