Bibliometrics are quantitative measures of research publications through citation analysis. They typically measure the number and frequency of citations to assess publications, and can be used to evaluate individuals, research groups, institutions, and journals by identifying:

  • the areas of strength and weakness in a research field
  • emerging areas of research
  • highly-cited journals in a particular field
  • highly-cited researchers in a particular field
  • core literature in a particular field
