Research impact can be measured in different ways using different tools. Traditionally, the indicators included the number of times a publication was cited and journal impact. Recent years, altmetrics have been used to measure a researcher's impact, which takes into account not just academic citations (traditional means), but also digital use and sharing of data (non-traditional means). It can include the number of times a paper has been viewed, tweeted, 'liked' on Facebook, covered by the media or blogs, downloaded, cited on Wikipedia or bookmarked online.
Scopus - If you are an author, search for your article to see the number of times your article was cited, the number of times your article was mentioned in social media, and the number of times your article was saved to CiteULike and Mendeley.
Web of Science - If you are an author, search for your article to see the number of times your article was cited. You can create a citation report of your published articles.
Google Scholar - You can create your citation profile and track who cited your articles ( an example) automatically. Google Scholar Citations also enables you to find experts in a research field (an example: Evidence-based Medicine). You will need a Google account to create your citations. Once you have your Google account, follow this simple instructions to set up your My Citation profile.
