From time to time, staff are asked to obtain citation counts of faculty research over a specific time period. This may be for our own faculty or an external academic. Citation count data demonstrate research impact through how often an articles has been cited in another's work. There are two main sources use at the School to obtain citation counts.
|Source||How to access||Advantages||Disadvantages|
|Web of Science||Our A-Z: Web of Science|
As an alternative to logging in to Web of Science data, the citation counts also appear in the LBS institutional repository: LBS Research Online. Just look up the paper and look in the Statistics box on the right-hand side. Further, the Library Team have started providing Subject Area Managers periodic reports of all LBS articles (including the Web of Science citation count).
