Tutor description

This paper is provided as a study guide only, please do not submit this document directly to any university. The journal performance measures captured in the Eigenfactor and Article Influence scores, which are said to measure “importance” and “prestige”, respectively, add little to what is already available in the ISI Total Citations and 5-year impact factor (5YIF) of a journal, we have no hesitation in concurring with Indiana Jones, who made the following remark regarding his competitors who were searching for the Lost Ark of the Covenant:“They’re digging in the wrong place!”
