Bibliometrics and Altmetrics

This guide was created to help UNLV researchers navigate bibliometrics and altmetrics when trying to evaluate journals for publication or indicate their scholarship's impact.

Other Metrics

Metrics don't necessarily have to be limited to measuring the impact of journal articles. The resources on this page will provide some information about other types of metrics that are available, or newly emerging and can be explored. Keep in mind that new metrics (those in use less than 5 - 10 years, depending on what its attempting to measure) are unproven and will need further study to determine whether they are a useful measure of scholarly impact.

Metrics for the Humanities

Disciplines in the Humanities (such as Film, History, Philosophy, Literature and English Students, and Social Sciences) often produce scholarly work in other formats. For more detailed information on tracking scholarly impact in the Humanities, please visit our Tracking Scholarship in the Arts and Humanities libguide.
