Eugene Garfield outlined the concept of citation indexing in an article in Science over 50 years ago. We will explore different methods of citation indexing including the Web of Science, Journal Citation Reports, Google Scholar, Research Index (CiteSeer), ScienceDirect, PROLA, and Citation Bridge (US Patents). Additional examples of citation indexes are welcome.
