Full Description

Citation analysis measures a scholar's research performance, as it is an indicator of how one scholar's publications influence the research and scholarly activities of others. Moreover, citation analysis plays an important role in faculty tenure, promotion, and hiring decisions in academic institutions, and also affects grant applications. Library and information professionals in academic and research institutions can use citation analysis data for making decisions in collection development and management projects. It has become a growing topic of research and publication in the library and information science field, and as the sources of obtaining citation data are proliferating, it has become difficult for information professionals to decide which tools are best to fit certain needs. In this workshop, participants will develop a better understanding of citation analysis tools and methods in order to conduct citation analysis in a meaningful way.

We will discuss:
- The different tools that generate citation data, including Web of Science, Scopus, Google Scholar, and others

- Various metrics of citation analysis, such as Impact Factor, h-index, Eigenfactor, Immediacy index, and altmetrics

- The methods and pitfalls of citation analysis and its tools

Who should attend:
Academic librarians, LIS Students, info professionals hoping to use citation analysis in current or future projects, and any others interested in learning about these methods.
