Book Metrics

The research contribution of books and book chapters is difficult to measure but could include:

  • Number of citations and analysis of citing sources (who is citing your work and where)
  • Review coverage of the book or chapter.
  • Number of copies in libraries internationally
  • Appearance of book/chapter on University reading lists
  • Prestige of publisher
  • Book sales/appearance on best seller lists/bookclub reading lists
  • translations
