ABSTRACT. In the present paper, I focus on citation measures based on indexed journal papers, the use of quality and impact metrics, quantitative indicators of research quality and impact, and the pressure to publish articles in top-tier, peer-reviewed journals. This study is grounded in the considerable body of scholarship examining the actual and future role of citation analysis in research evaluation, the use of sophisticated citation-based indicators as quality markers, the relationship between quantitative metrics of research quality and impact, and citation counts as indicators of research “impact.” pp. 143–149

Keywords: citation analysis, research evaluation, publication metrics
