What is Citation Analysis?

Citation analysis refers to the process of analyzing the quality of a work by counting how many times it is cited by others.  Citation analysis can apply to a journal, a book, an article, or any body of work.  Common types of citation analysis are "impact factor", "h-index", "eigenvalue" and many more.
