Full recordShow full item record
AbstractBibliometric methods such as journal impact factor, article influence score, or h index based on number of citations were developed to measure and compare the quality of journals listed in citation indexes. Yet, they are increasingly being used nowadays for research assessment, hiring, tenure and academic promotion, research funding and publication support even though such metrics have not been developed to measure the quality of individual researchers or scientific articles. In this paper, we review the use of journal impact factor, cited half-life, article influence score and h index for academic performance assessment, academic promotion and publication support by universities and the Turkish Scientific and Technological Research Center (TÜBİTAK). Examples are provided regarding the consequences of using bibliometric measures beyond what they were originally designed for, and some recommendations are offered.
