My RI - Measuring your Research Impact. Citation searching.

An introduction

Citation searching and analysis lets you:

  • See who has influenced particular research
  • Identify leading researchers in a particular field
  • Identify emerging areas of research
  • Identify competitors and potential collaborators
  • Assess the impact of an individuals’ or group of individuals’ research output

However, as noted in Module 1, there are limitations to the sole use of publication and citation counts in evaluating research impact.
