Harzing Publish or Perish
Publish or Perish is a software program that retrieves and analyzes academic citations. It uses Google Scholar and (since release 4.1) Microsoft Academic Search to obtain the raw citations.
You can set up an account with Google Scholar, ad you publications and keep track of citations and your h-index. Please be aware that Google Scholar often shows higher citation counts than databases such as Scopus and Web of Science. This is because more output is being counted, such as non-peer reviewed publications, grey literature and theses.
With each paper, Scopus displays citation count and usage data from Snowball Metrics and Mendeley.
Web of Science
Web of Science provides information about citation counts and usage counts alongside search results.
