Do Citations Count? Citation Indexing and the Research Assessment Exercise (RAE)

Author:

Charles Oppenheim

Abstract

Citations are used to illustrate or elaborate on a point, or to criticise. Citation studies, based on ISI's Citation Indexes, can help evaluate scientific research, while impact factors aid libraries in deciding which journals to cancel or purchase. This paper suggests that citation counts can replace the costly RAE in assessing the research output of university departments.
