Bibliometrics is the quantitative analysis of scholarly publications, intended to provide an indication of their impact on academic and public discourse. Traditionally, bibliometrics takes account of the number of times a research paper is cited, in order to compare it against other papers in the same field (University of York, n.d.). Bibliometrics include what is called ‘altmetrics,’ which can be considered a subset of bibliometrics. See also, Almetrics.
