Scientometrics is the science of measuring and analysing science. In practise, scientometrics is often done using bibliometrics that is measurement of (scientific) publications.

Modern scientometrics is mostly based on the work of Derek J. de Solla Price and Eugene Garfield. The latter founded the Institute for Scientific Information which is heavily used for scientometric analysis.

Related fields are the history of science and technology, philosophy of science and sociology of scientific knowledge.

One of the most important journals in the field of scientometrics is also called Scientometrics (ISSN 0138-9130).
