Bibliometrics are the statistical analyses of books, articles, or other publications. The analyses are used to track author or researcher output and impact. This can help in promotion and tenure, as well as aiding in funding and grants. Bibliometrics are also used to calculate journal impact factors, which can help you decide into which journal to publish.
This research guide will help you find sources available in both the Hunt Library and those available on the Internet to help you determine both author impact and journal impact.
