Citation Research at MSU

What is citation analysis?

Citation analysis is a way to determine the impact of an author, an article, or an institution by tracking the number of times a work or an author has been cited by others. Unfortunately, this is not a simple process because there is no single source that covers all publications or their cited references. This section of the guide highlights some resources at the MSU Library that can help in the creation of citation counts.
