Research metrics and publishing: Key metric tools

Key tools

There are three main sources of metrics tools that are often used to gather author, journal and publication citation data for ranking and benchmarking. These include publisher/analytic companies such as Clarivate and Elsevier.
Google scholar is the other main source of citation data for authors. Digital Science is a relatively new source that provides additional information on patent citations, policy and altmetric attention. Click on the icons to view the tools or use the side navigation tabs.
