A new guide on Impact Metrics

Following our blog articles on bibliometrics and their major applications, our specialist librarians Isabelle Vuillemin-Raval and Linda Leger have prepared a full guide on Impact Metrics.

This will help you understand:

  • Journal and article impact factors
  • Author impact factors such as G, H and i10 indexes
  • The shift towards Altmetrics
  • Why such calculations can be a bad idea

Enjoy!
