Savvy Researcher: Create and Manage Your Online Scholarly Presence: Book-Level Metrics

Overview

Until recently, citations for books or book chapter were not indexed. However, the growing interest in metrics lead to the development of tools that also include books and books chapters. Other methods to demonstrate the impact of a book or book chapter include: number of libraries including the book in their collections, book reviews, inclusion on a Best Seller list, whether it is used as a textbook, awards and translations, etc.
