The cyclical hierarchy of citationsUse:Impact on author;Impact on cited works;Impact on venuesPublish:Writing peer-reviewed;Work indexed;Cited works receive “+1”Cite:Show derivation;Uphold intellectualhonestyPrior work iscited in newwritingsNew writing ismade “public”Accessible tofuture literaturesearchesCited work getsa “+1”Effect on JIF, H-index, i10-index, etc
GarfieldIf the book is the macro unit of thought, and the periodical is the micro unit ofthought, then you can consider the citation index as the molecular unit of thought

Research questions• Are there barriers to changing practices around citations?• Can using qualitative inputs and measures to describeresearch, alongside statistics-based measures, derive extravalue in terms of stimulating communities of practice?• Will further development in the field of (alt)metrics, and aconceptual framework designed specifically for understandinghow to measure impact, result in a better HCI experience forboth writers and analysts?
