SummaryCitation distributions for 1992, 1994, 1996, 1997, 1999, and 2001, which were published in the 2004 report of the National Science Foundation, USA, are analyzed. It is shown that the ratio of the total number of citations of any two broad fields of science remains close to constant over the analyzed years. Based on this observation, normalization of total numbers of citations with respect to the number of citations in mathematics is suggested as a tool for comparing scientific impact… 
Impact functions on the citation network of scientific articles
Bibliometric scoring of an individual’s research output in science and engineering
TLDR
The h -index has been successful in assessing the performance of scientists of the same field and at the same stage of their careers, and by appropriately scaling the discipline-dependence of h - index has also enabled comparison among those working in different disciplines, serving as a simplified, robust, intelligible measure.
Bibliometric analysis of the Czech research publications from 1994 to 2005
TLDR
Analysis of bibliometric data of Czech research papers generated from 1994 to 2005 indicates that Czech research is lagging behind the leading EU countries, but its output is proportional to the R&D expenses.
Normalisation of citation impact in economics
TLDR
Two normalised indicators in economics are applied, which are the most important indicators in bibliometrics: the mean normalised citation score (MNCS) and PPtop 10 %, which is the share of papers that belong to the 10% most cited papers in a certain subfield and time period.
Comparing scientific performance among equals
TLDR
In this article, it is defended that scientific performance of an individual scientist, laboratory or institution should be analysed within the corresponding context and objective tools to perform this kind of comparative analysis are provided.
Citation rates in mathematics: a study of variation by subdiscipline
TLDR
There is a pattern in which mathematicians working in some subdisciplines have fewer citations than others who won the same award, and this pattern is consistent for all awards.
Noncumulative measures of researcher citation impact
TLDR
This work single out six measures from the rather sparse literature, including Hirsch’s m-index, a time-scaled version of the h- index, and introduces new measures based on the idea of “citation acceleration,” which shows substantial promise for future use.
REFLECTIONS ON THE H-INDEX
Since Hirsch’s first publication of the h-index in 2005 (Hirsch, 2005), this new measure of academic impact has generated a widespread interest. At the time of writing (January 2007) Google Scholar
BIBLIOMETRIC EVALUATION OF SCIENTIFIC LITERATURE IN THE AREA OF RESEARCH IN EDUCATION USING INCITES™ DATABASE OF THOMSON REUTERS
TLDR
InCitesTM is currently the only available tool that allows to aggregate data concerning citations that would be divided into areas, journals and scientific institutions, using multi-criteria search.
