Abstract:

This paper explores the factors shaping the current uses of the ISI citation databases in evaluation both of journals and of individual scholars and their institutions. Given the intense focus on outcomes evaluation, in a context of increasing 'democratization' of metrics in today's digital world, it is easy to lose focus on the appropriate ways to use these resources, and misuse can result.
