The Stats tab shows you in-depth stats about your research to help you measure the attention your work is getting online. You can see a historical overview of your stats in simple, interactive graphs.
You’ll see how often your work has been read and cited, and by whom. You’ll also get more information on which country and institution interested researchers come from, as well as which of your publications are read most each week.
The Scores tab shows you two different ways of measuring your impact and reputation as a researcher – the h-index and the RG Score.
The h-index is a simple way to measure the impact of your research based on citations. It is calculated by looking at the number of highly impactful publications you've published. The higher the number of cited work you have, the higher your h-index, regardless of which journal it was published in.The RG Score is our very own metric that measures scientific reputation based on how both your published research and contributions on ResearchGate are received by your peers.
