Dear Quentin and colleagues,

Olga Amsterdamska and I unpacked the notion of measuring "quality" by
citation in an extensive study entitled "Dimensions of Citation
Analysis," (Science, Technology and Human Values 15, 1990, 305-335). I
brought a preprint version (without the pictures) on-line at for your convenience.

With kind regards,
