CiteScholar is an international volunteer organization focused on objective and quantitative measurement of scholarly impact.

The original motivation behind CiteScholar is that scientific indicators are based only on journals: e.g. ISI Web of Knowledge/Science. However, in many fields, conferences are equally important publication venues. Therefore, our intention is to measure the impact factor of conferences worldwide using Google Scholar.

We cover over 5,000 conferences and journals and measure the impact factor for the year 2010.
