Citation analysis is an important tool in the academic community. It can
aid universities,
funding bodies, and individual researchers to evaluate scientific work and
direct resources appropriately. With the rapid growth of the scientific
enterprise and the increase of online libraries that include citation
analysis tools, the need for a systematic evaluation of these tools becomes
more important.

*The research presented in this study deals with scientific research
output, i.e., articles and citations, and how they can be used in
bibliometrics to measure academic success*
