Abstract:

This chapter examines bibliometric assessments of research, including publication in general, journal lists and types of citation analysis, including individual citations and impact factors. We examine the central role of publication in research and the reasons for this, before examining methods of ranking publications. We discuss the benefits and limitations of citation analysis. The Excellence in Research Australia framework is investigated.
