With the Metrics Toolkit you can quickly understand what a metric means, how it is calculated, and if it’s good match for your impact question.

Introduction

While research outputs can take many and diverse forms, the most commonly recognised type is publication. The impact of a publication can be measured qualitatively through peer-review and quantitatively through various metrics. The quantitative measurement of publications is generally referred to as bibliometrics.
