Google Updates Scholar Metrics

By Africa S. Hands

From Google Scholar blog:

Scholar Metrics provide an easy way for authors to quickly gauge the visibility and influence of recent articles in scholarly publications. Today, we are releasing the 2014 version of Scholar Metrics. This release is based on citations from all articles that were indexed in Google Scholar as of mid-June 2013 and covers articles published in 2009–2013.

You can browse publications in 8 broad areas like Physics & Mathematics or Life Sciences & Earth Sciences as well as 253 specific categories such as Physical Education & Sports Medicine or Plasma & Fusion. You will see the top 20 publications ordered by their five-year h-index and h-median metrics. To see which articles in a publication were cited the most and who cited them, click on its h-index number. To see the list of categories in an area, click on the area and then click on “Subcategories”.
