Research metrics guide

These are just some of the regular questions we get asked about research metrics by researchers from across the world. So, from the Impact Factor to an Altmetric Attention Score, Eigenfactor to the h-index, we’ve gathered together a simple guide to research metrics.

This updated introduction features details of the most commonly used metrics, including how they are calculated. Find out about the range of journal-, article-, and author-level metrics, as well as how they can help you choose a journal to submit to or measure the impact of your work.

The guide also includes resources to explore a little deeper, including some of the latest research from across Taylor & Francis and Routledge journals, and a panel discussion on metrics and recognition.
