Where else can I find article citation counts?
What are the challenges of citation tracking?
- Impact measures provided by citation tracking databases only include citations by articles indexed in that database, so they won’t be comprehensive
- The number of citations may not be accurate, because of mistakes made by authors when citing. Databases won’t catch those mistakes.
- Impact measures used by one database may not be available in other databases for comparison
What are Article-Level Metrics?
These metrics can be used to determine the true impact of an article, by its influence on the public as well as the scholarly community
