Abstract

To quantify science and to handle the scientific information, various methods are used. Researchers and scientists use varied techniques for fundamental concepts which are more or less auxiliary and corresponding to a certain extension with respect to their applications. Scientometrics, in this context, is a novel scientific field joining science and technology with information science and expending numerous mathematical, statistical, data mining techniques, and procedures to measure and quantify scientific information. The focus of scientometrics as a discipline is the literature of science and technology. The chapter thus aims to discuss the concept of scientometrics and its indicators that are employed to assess the quality of scholarly content. Further, the chapter also discusses the pros and cons of prominent scientometric indicators that are currently employed in assessing the performance of an individual researcher, institution, or country.
