A guide to journal citation metrics
About this video
Metrics have become a fact of life in many - if not all - fields of research and scholarship. In an age of information abundance (often termed ‘information overload’), knowing what literature to focus our limited attention on has become increasingly important.
In this webinar, Andrew Plume, an expert in journal metrics, introduces and explains some of the most popular citation-based metrics employed at the journal level, including CiteScore Metrics, SCImago Journal Rank (SJR), Source Normalized Impact per Paper (SNIP) and Journal Impact Factor (JIF).
You will come away with an understanding of the appropriate use of journal citation metrics, knowledge of several of the most commonly-used journal citation metrics and comprehend the source, method of calculation and strengths/shortcomings of the most commonly-used journal citation metrics.
