Scaling Science Explore is a tool for exploring different measures of the impact of an article. It currently is running over papers in a single subdiscipline. Feedback is welcome.
Focusing on citations of a given paper
Impact (node centrality in the citation graph)
Focusing on the authors (averaged over all authors / first author)
Total author citation count (per paper, per year)
Author experience (years since first publication)
Focusing on coauthors
# of Recent coauthors
Coauthor pagerank (in coauthorship graph)
Total journal citation count
What other metrics do people regularly use to track and estimate impact?
There are some graph-wide measures that require the context of a full citation graph rather than the local vicinity of what points to or is pointed to by a document.
What policy questions hinge on these or other metrics?
For a given measure, how else might it be aggregated? (averaging across journals, contexts, networks, timescales)
