Abstract: This article focuses on the emergence of citation analysis as
a critical measure of research value. There is a growing number of
databases and websites with citation data due to the increased desire to
use citedness to measure value and relative positioning. The
difficulties involved in working on citation analysis can range from
making sure that one have everything on a person to achieving a
confidence level in terms of the universe of potential cited references.
The integrity of the reference lists is a key indicator of good citation
analysis. Bibliometric Toolbox developed by Terrence Alan Brooks was the
first product offered to help with citation data manipulation. The
algorithmic historiography software product HistCite was launched by
scientist Eugene Garfield in October 2007.
