#Scholarometer a research impact tool

Scholarometer(beta) is a social tool to facilitate citation analysis and help evaluate the impact of an author’s publications. Scholarometer uses Google Scholar data to create a relative discipline based research impact factor.

For example, my Scholarometer impact factor as at 14 December 2016 is found at: http://scholarometer.indiana.edu/cgi-bin/indexu.cgi?func=query&expr=e80965fb1f92e0f532ab47824efa0e09&ver=4.1.0

A widget provides a summary of the impact factor analysis:

The widget provides embed code for use in various websites:

var scholarometerWidgetAuthorId = ‘e80965fb1f92e0f532ab47824efa0e09’;var scholarometerWidgetPreferences = {‘cited articles’: true,’citation count’: true,’h index’: true,’Scholarometer %ile’: true,’hs index’: {‘scholarship of technology enhanced learning’: true, ‘mobile learning’: true, ‘education & educational research’: true, ‘social sciences’: true, ‘educational technology’: true}};var scholarometerWidgetColors = {‘headingBackground’: ‘#cf8c21′,’headingText’: ‘#ffffff’,’contentBackground’: ‘#ffffff’,’contentText’: ‘#785A28′,’measureText’: ‘#4E360D’};var scholarometerWidgetWidth = ‘200px’;var scholarometerWidgetHeight = ‘auto’;var scholarometerWidgetFontSize = ‘0.9em’;http://scholarometer.indiana.edu/api/authors/author/e80965fb1f92e0f532ab47824efa0e09?format=jsonphttp://scholarometer.indiana.edu/html/js/scholarometer.widget.js

This based upon my Google Scholar profile:

Scholarometer is an interesting attempt at creating a relative research impact factor analysis tool, and works via either a Firefox or Chrome browser extension. It’s another tool to add to your research profile alongside research networks such as Researchgate.net
