According to the Académie des Sciences, "The term bibliometrics, but it would be better to use bibliometric evaluation, generally refers to the set of procedures that contribute to the evaluation of the scientific output of a researcher (or a set of researchers):

  • from the number of his publications,
  • from the citations they generated in other publications
  • from the prestige of the journals in which they were published

In any case, bibliometrics does not measure the quality of a researcher but only his citations, without prejudging the reasons that led him to be quoted. "
