SofI Publication Metrics

The publication metrics is a tool for measurig the scientific impact of an astronomer as well as an instrument.

Here we report the publication metrics for papers based at least partially on SofI data as for 2008, hoping that this information may be useful to the community. The literature survey is provided by ESO Library and that further statistics are available through the ESO Telescope Bibliography. A plot for all the La Silla instruments can be seen here.
