Delineating citation concepts


  • This is the space reserved for copyright notices.


In this poster we clarify concepts related to citations and citer analysis that are often overlooked or vaguely addressed by researchers. How one addresses concepts such as citers, self-citations, and recitation can affect outcomes, so it is important to be clear about what is being measured. We outline the different types of citations as self-citations, recitations and their overlap. New areas related to oeuvre citation counting are outlined.
