Relative Citation Ratio (RCR) from NIH

The Relative Citation Ratio (RCR) is a NIH metric representing a citation-based measure of scientific influence. The RCR normalizes the number of citations a work receives by taking into account the average number of citations received by works in that field.

This metric will only be available for works in PubMed from about 1995 onwards.
