Google releases 2020 version of Scholar Metrics

(7 Jul 2020)  From Google Scholar Blog:

“Scholar Metrics provide an easy way for authors to quickly gauge the visibility and influence of recent articles in scholarly publications. Today, we are releasing the 2020 version of Scholar Metrics. This release covers articles published in 2015–2019 and includes citations from all articles that were indexed in Google Scholar as of June 2020.

Scholar Metrics include journals from websites that follow our inclusion guidelines and selected conferences in Engineering & Computer Science. Publications with fewer than 100 articles in 2015-2019, or publications that received no citations over these years are not included.

You can browse publications in specific categories such as Computer Vision & Pattern RecognitionFluid Mechanics, or Geography & Cartography as well as broad areas like Engineering & Computer Science or Humanities, Literature & Arts . You will see the top 20 publications ordered by their five-year h-index and h-median metrics. You also can browse the top 100 publications in several languages – for example, Portuguese and Spanish. For each publication, you can view the top papers by clicking on the h5-index.”
