Overview of Bibliometric Analysis

Whose articles cite a body of work? Is this a high-impact journal? How might others assess my scholarly impact? Citation analysis is one of the primary methods used to answer these questions. Academics, publishers, and funders often study the patterns of citations in the academic literature in order to explore the relationships among researchers, topics, and publications, and to measure the impact of articles,  journals, and individuals.

MIT has a wonderful tradition of offering a variety of short courses during the Winter hiatus, known as IAP. The MIT Libraries generally offers dozens of courses on data and information management (among other topics) during this time. Moreover, the Libraries also hold bonus IAP sessions in April and July.

For IAPril, the Program on Information Science has introduced a new course on citation and bibliometric analysis, this provides a review of and citation and altmetric data; best-of-class free/open tools for analysis; and classes of measures.

The full (and updated) slides are below:

 

In addition a short summary of MIT resources, as summarized in a presentation to library Liaisons is available here:
