  • In this work, we try to answer the question of which method, peer review versus bibliometrics, better predicts the future overall scholarly impact of scientific publications. [...] Key Result We find that the latter shows stronger predictive power, i.e. it more reliably predicts late citations in all the disciplinary areas examined, and for any citation time window starting 1 year after publication.Expand Abstract
