 Snowball Publication Metrics


Scholarly Output is a Snowball metric defined as the number of publication outputs of any type, in this case, at the institutional level.  Publication types can include journal articles, conference papers, books, book chapters, technical reports and more. This metric can indicate the productivity of an institution.
This tile was created using the Scopus database. Although Scopus is very strong in covering journal articles and conference papers over many subject disciplines, it is less thorough in covering other publication types, such as technical reports. To increase the accuracy of the metric, users need to use more than one source for the data.
Snowball Metrics aims to become the international standard in the realm of publication metrics because they are defensible, transparent, standardized and flexible.
