Publication and Citation-based Impact

I have been collecting data on citations of my own work for a number of years and once wrote a guide to the concepts for biologists (rather than for those better versed in bibliometrics and scientometrics) (put on PeerJ Preprint Server, 2014-08-26). I have expanded the collection of metrics beyond those described in the paper and have now created a separate webpage for every metric, including a basic explanation, a worked example (in many cases), and a year-by-year history of that metric based on my own publication record.

The code for calculating all of these metrics can be found on Github.
