Metrics, Identifiers, & Profiles - UC Office of Scholarly Communications

"How should scholarly communications be evaluated? Because scholars’ work varies so widely, it’s impossible to find quantitative measurements that work equally well for everyone, but more and more tools are being developed to provide a broader picture of a work’s relevance and importance in its field and beyond."


"Scholars have long been evaluated based on how many publications they have, and which journals or presses they publish with. Sometimes these journals are ranked or scored with systems like Impact Factors, Eigenfactors, and other journal ranking systems."
