Times cited and publications over time
This graph is comprised of a histogram of your Web of Science Core Collection documents per-publication year and a line graph of the citations your documents received in those years.
View citation report: if you are entitled to the Web of Science Core Collection you may click through from here to “View citation report.” Please note that the documents used to generate that citation report will only be those we have successfully matched to you in the Web of Science Core Collection.
Author Impact Beamplot
Beamplots were devised by Lutz Bornmann and Robin Haunschild (Max Planck Institute, 2018). The Institute for Scientific Information (ISI) has promoted beamplots as an alternative to the h-index in Profiles not metrics (2019). The following are benefits of beamplots:
- Contextualizes a researcher’s articles to make them suitable for comparison
- You can see performance change over the course of a researcher’s career
- Evaluators can see performance change over the course of a career
- Discourages reliance on a single-point metric that lacks context and nuance
With Web of Science Core Collection entitlements, you can view others’ author impact beamplots on their researcher profiles. Without those entitlements you may only view your own.

Geographic citation map
Your geographic citation map shows you the locations across the world from which other researchers have cited your Web of Science Core Collection documents. Those coordinates are based on the institutions with which their authorships are affiliated.
With Web of Science Core Collection entitlements, you can view others’ geographic citation map on their researcher profile. Without those entitlements you may only view your own.
Peer review metrics
- Verified peer reviews shows the total number of verified reviews you have added to your profile.
- Verified peer reviews (last 12 months) shows the number of verified reviews you have added to your profile and completed in the last year.
- Peer review to publication ratio indicates the ratio of verified peer reviews to papers published
Reviews per month
A graph showing the number of verified reviews you have completed either per-month or cumulatively on a month-by-month basis.
Average review length
A graph showing the average word count among reviews for which you have added the review content. You can add review content on each review’s edit page.
