Are Models Cited?

There are currently 20,400 references added to the model reference repository. With this we track the total number of papers that cite a specific model, and a bibliometric rating in the form of the h-index for models: a version of the popular h-index that references a specific model rather than a unique author. The h-index metric has several benefits:

  • model developers and users can expose publications with model metadata and thereby highlight their research,
  • model users have an overview of all literature that is available for a model, and
  • a user can, based on the h-index, quickly see whether a model is well adopted within the community.
