Browser Extension for Academic Impact Analysis
Scholarometer is a social platform that extends Google Scholar to facilitate scholarly citation analysis. You provide author annotations about their fields, and our tool uses this crowdsourced data to evaluate the impact of an author's publications in those fields. Our impact metric can be compared across fields. Install the browser extension to use Scholarometer!
After installation, you will see the Scholarometer panel at the top right-hand side of any Google Scholar profile page.

- The extension is easier to use; there is no need to search. It only provides data about universal impact metrics rather than reproducing a list of publications already available in Google Scholar.
- Fields shown in gray do not have enough votes to know if they are reliable.
- You can now tag and evaluate the impact of any author with a Google Scholar profile. This addresses the issue of ambiguous author names but precludes the possibility of searching for any author who is not on Google Scholar.

- The Scholarometer website (scholarometer.indiana.edu) is completely redesigned and simplified.
