Science Metrics: A great collection of articles from Nature

The value of scientific output is often measured, to rank one nation against another, allocate funds between universities, or even grant or deny tenure. Scientometricians have devised a multitude of ‘metrics’ to help in these rankings. Do they work? Are they fair? Are they over-used? Nature investigates.
