Measuring Your Impact: Journal Rankings, Citation Analysis, and Other Metrics

Tools and methods for measuring the impact of an individual or their scholarshipp


Cabells Scholarly Analytics includes the impact factor from Journal Citation Reports, the Altmetric score, and its own Cabells classification index (CCI). The CCI is citation-based, using Scopus as its data source where available, to measure influence and quality in a subject area. A journal can have multiple CCIs if it encompasses multiple disciplines or multiple topics in the disciplines. The CCI is calculated using the average citation rate across three years and standardized in a discipline or topic.
