Thomson Scientific Launches New Citation Impact Forum

Thomson Scientific announced the launch of its Citation Impact Forum (, an online forum promoting scholarly discussion about all facets of citation-based research evaluation—from Thomson Scientific’s own Journal Impact Factor to emerging citation metrics, such as the h-index. The company hopes that by promoting an understanding and discussion of scholarly metrics, those in the industry will be encouraged to use metrics more effectively.

The Citation Impact Forum will feature interviews with and commentary from industry leaders— bibliometricians, researchers, and publishers—about scholarly evaluation. By becoming a registered member of the forum, users have the added ability to join invitation-only forums where they can participate in discussions by sharing their own thoughts with other members. Registered members can also recommend future forum discussion topics.

Thomson Scientific said it will also use the forum to address—or to clarify—inaccuracies and common misinterpretations circulating among the scientific community printed in journals, blogs, and other forums.
