The level of recognition and the reputation of the author(s) or editor(s) are starting points for the evaluation.
  • The author's academic credentials as well as affiliation to a renowned academic institution generally form the prerequisite for examining a publication in more detail.
  • Bibliometric indicators, including the frequency with which the publications of authors are cited, can be used to quantify reputation. The h-index, for example, indicates that at least h number of an author's publications have been cited at least h times. Bibliometric indicators can be found in databases such as Web of Science and Scopus or in the search engine Google Scholar .
