Learning Outcomes
After attending this session, you should:

 

  • Understand how citations can be used as a proxy for quality, impact and reach;
  • Have an understanding of the definition of Field-Weighted Citation Impact and other citation indicators;
  • Be able to apply critical thinking around what is driving these numbers and build this into your workflows;
  • Find out where to find these metrics in Scopus.

Scopus offers more research metrics — and on nearly twice the number of peer-reviewed publications — than any other abstract and citation database. Plus, we show the details behind our metrics, giving you confidence in knowing how the numbers are derived.
