Citations—often termed as intellectual transactions, acknowledgment of intellectual debts, and conceptual association—are a link between the author’s current study and previously published work. Citation data is considered as an authentic measure to rank articles, authors, journals, and publishers. Citation counts can be used to evaluate ‘usage’, ‘reach’, and ‘impact’ of the published articles. They not only provide credibility to the author’s work but also help funders evaluate the influence of the research study. Further, citation indexes are maintained for information retrieval of both cited and citing work, facilitating the literature search process. This webinar aims to help researchers understand citation indexing and how authors can get indexed in established citation databases. It will also briefly discuss academic journal indexing.
Through this session, researchers will learn:
- Why and what authors need to cite?
- Citation indexing and its significance

- How can journals and publishers index in citation databases?
Who should attend this session?
