Why track citations?
Citation tracking is used to discover how many times a particular article has been cited by other articles. As a general rule, high quality articles attract a greater number of citations. Citations are also used to measure the Impact of a particular Article/Journal or the Research performance of a Individual Researcher or Academic Institution.
The main indexers of citations are the Scopus & Web of Science databases.
