Reference managers allow you to download citations, collect articles share & manage references, PDFs, data, and documents. Some work with word processing to format citations and footnotes in papers and create bibliographies in a variety of styles.
Citation counts measure the impact of a publication, an author or a topic, by counting the number of times it is cited by other works. No Single citation analysis source covers all publications and their cited references.
Major citation count resources:
Web of Science: most interdisciplinary and comprehensive citation resource.
Google Scholar: citation information from scholarly journal articles within the Scholar database and from U.S. patents in Google Patents database. Option: eliminate the patents as a source of citation data or nclude citations from legal journals and opinions.
