The Eigenfactor Project™ is a non-commercial academic research project that uses recent advances in network analysis and information theory to develop novel methods for evaluating the influence of scholarly periodicals and for mapping the structure of academic research. Analysis is based on a subset of the citation data from Thomson Reuters' Journal Citation Reports 1997–2005. The complete data aggregate, at the journal level, equals approximately 60,000,000 citations from more than 7,000 journals. Sponsored by the Bergstrom lab in the Department of Biology at the University of Washington.
