There are disciplinary and even sub-disciplinary differences and these should not be crossed in any comparisons. This includes news coverage, social media activity, and other data like views and downloads. Metrics can be gamed. Content includes coverage of a wide variety of applied science specialties—acoustics to aeronautics, neural networks to nuclear and civil engineering, computers and informatics and much more. The information is presented and can be analysed in a number of ways, including pie charts, graphs and tables, and shows the breakdown of citation activity over a number of years and your h-index based on this data.

    In this book, Yves Gingras offers a spirited argument against an unquestioning reliance on bibliometrics as an indicator of research quality. It is also becoming increasingly used as a measure of research activity and academic prominence across various subject areas. Again, the numbers won't reveal that. Various tutorials on using Scopus can be accessed here.
