Bibliometric indicators

Many of us have a love/hate relationship with bibliometric indicators, those numbers imposed on, and by, us to quantify the unquantifiable. The latest issue of Radiology provides a nice overview of these, giving some historical perspective and summarizing the pros and cons. (The previous issue of Radiology also provides what appears to be the first in a series of tips and tricks on the use of Powerpoint, something else with which many of us have a love/hate relationship...)

Update: And speaking of love/hate relationships, The New York Times has a funny/frightening article about the US military obsession with Powerpoint.
