Beyond your Bibliography: Exploring your Publications for Reach and Impact

by Kimberley Barker on 2018-11-26T12:18:40-05:00 | Comments


Most of us can produce a list of our publications, and are familiar with additional metrics such as citation counts for articles, and Impact Factors for journals. But through the library’s subscription to Web of Science, you can uncover a host of additional metrics about your work, or any group of publications. Through the Web of Science’s Analyze Results feature you can visualize many aspects of your publication data. Examples include:

  • What are the most prolific universities publishing research on a given subject?
  • What funding agencies, both public and private, are linked to topic or author of interest?
  • Which authors are associated with a topic or journal?


  • What countries publish the most papers on a specific topic?

Getting started is easy: begin in Web of Science and perform a search of any type – by topic, author, or even an uploaded list of PMIDs. From there, choose Analyze Results. You’ll see a number of ways to analyze your result set, including Organizations, Authors, Countries, Funding Agencies, Source Titles (journals) and more. Combining these filters and others helps to visualize your publications in new and exciting ways. It’s also easy to save, export, or share your results.

To learn more about the Analyze Results feature in Web of Science, contact the library’s Publication Impact Services. We’re happy to demonstrate the features, and can work from a set of citations to help produce a report.
