Google Scholar Metrics for Publications

Sunday, April 1, 2012 | 3:00 AM

 

Most researchers are familiar with well-established journals and conferences in their field. They are often less familiar with newer publications or publications in related fields – there’re simply too many! Today, we’re introducing Google Scholar Metrics: an easy way for authors to quickly gauge the visibility and influence of recent articles in scholarly publications. 

To get started, you can browse the top 100 publications in several languages, ordered by their five-year h-index and h-median metrics. You can also search for publications by words in their titles. For example, [design], [international law], [salud], and [otolaryngology]. To see which articles in a publication were cited the most and who cited them, click on its h-index number.

Scholar Metrics currently covers many (but not all) articles published between 2007 and 2011. It includes journal articles only from websites that follow our inclusion guidelines as well as conference articles and preprints from a small number of hand-identified sources. For more details, see the Scholar Metrics help page.

Here is hoping Google Scholar Metrics will help authors worldwide as they consider where to publish their latest article.
