Recent citations published in the past 10 years are expected to be more than 64.95% of all citations. Likewise, citations older than 10 years are expected to be less than 35.05% of all citations and so on. Green bars show expected ranges for references. Blue dots show the status of your references.

*please remember that in some cases up-to-dateness of references would strongly depend on other factors like the field and the topic of the article.

What does this graph show?

This bell curve shows the distribution of the number of citations per 100 words for thousands of articles in our database and the relative position of your article. The green area is generally considered as an acceptable range for reference density.

*please remember that optimal number of references would also change with other factors including the journals' regulations and article type.
