Scholarometer and author citations

Scholarometer is a social tool to facilitate citation analysis and help evaluate the impact of an author’s publications. So I’m giving it a whirl.


According to James, a man in the know, there are three main ways author citations can be found:

  • web of science
  • google scholar
  • scopus

Each gives a different number of citations as they use different ways of identifying articles. Scholarometer uses Google Scholar.
