InCites is a citation-based evaluation tool for academic and government administrators to analyze institutional productivity and benchmark output against peers and aspirational peers in a national or international context.
InCites can be accessed using a Maastricht University e-mail address:
- When registering for a Clarivate Analytics product for the first time, please use a Maastricht University e-mail address and a Maastricht University IP-authenticated computer.
- If you are already registered for a Clarivate Analytics product – like Web of Science – you can use that account. But first, your Web of Science (WoS) and/or Journal Citation Reports (JCR) account needs to be synchronized with InCites.
Please follow these steps to do so:
Once registered in InCites you will be able to access InCites via the product link tab in the Web of Science or the Journal Citation Reports.
When using InCites for evaluation purposes be cautious as the quantitative indicators are meant to support qualitative, expert assessment and should not be used in isolation (see: Using InCites responsibly: A Guide to Interpretation and Good Practice and The Leiden Manifesto for research metrics ).
The InCItes handbook, discussing the available indicators, and how they are calculated, is downloadable in PDF format.
