In the latest of a dramatic series of improvements over the last year, Google Scholar has just announced bibliometrics for research areas.
This new data allows you to see the top 20 publications in each area ordered by their five-year h-index and h-median metrics. To see which articles in a publication were cited the most and who cited them, click on its h-index number. Such data has been commonly available for the Sciences for some time, but Scholar has now brought this to the Social Sciences, and specifically, the fragmented area of publications in education research. Subheadings available include:
- A conceptual framework for the teaching and learning of generic graduate attributes
- A meta-analysis of writing instruction for adolescent students
- The Challenge of College Readiness
- What drives a successful e-Learning? An empirical investigation of the critical factors influencing learner satisfaction
