Analyzing the Impact of an Author's Publications (Brief Communications) (Report)

INTRODUCTION Information professionals are called on to determine how best to measure the impact of an author’s articles, and citation counts are often regarded as one method for obtaining a quantitative expression of the utilization and contribution of a particular published paper. As Meho states, citation analysis assumes that influential works or scientists are cited more often than others [1]. Egghe and Rousseau claim that citation counts are based on four important assumptions: an article’s citation implies use of that document by the citing author; the citation reflects the merit (quality, significance, impact) of the article; the references are from the best possible works on the topic; and the cited articles are related in content to the one in which they are used [2].
