InCites Benchmarking & Analytics: Responsible Use of Research Metrics

InCites Benchmarking & Analytics is a research analytics tool.

Using Indicators Wisely

Research evaluation is increasingly being conducted using bibliometric methodology and citation analysis.
Because no individual bibliometric indicator can account for all aspects of research performance, it is
recommended that selections of bibliometrics indicators are utilized to provide a broader view and to
discover any data artifacts.


Clarivate Analytics InCites supports a comprehensive class of advanced bibliometric indicators assessing
various aspects of research performance.
