Assessment of citation-based research quality is an issue which has increasingly interested scientific and professional organizations, as well as the concerned Ministries of the Government of Serbia. Citation count is widely used in evaluating the importance and impact of the author’s work on other authors in the country and abroad. In order to find out how often their published papers have been cited, researches turn to citation tracking tools: abstracting and indexing databases, as well as other electronic sources of information. After citation data tracking, authors need to exclude the overlapping citations and summarize the total number of citations. This paper reviews the following options for citation tracking (both multiple authors and self-citations): Web of Science, Scopus, Scindex, SocioFact, Google Book, Google Scholar, and Google. There is, unfortunately, no easy way for citation tracking of non-electronic resources. That is why researchers also need to search printed publications, to find if their work was cited, or other authors need to inform them about citing their publications. Not all citations are equal: the top citations are presented and ranked in the Web of Science; it means that they were published in journals with an impact factor which are included in the ISI list. There are several types of citations, as well as different aspects and reasons for citation. One must not forget that, apart from citations, scientometry provides other criteria for assessing research quality, and they should be given a proper place in evaluation of research performance. In recent years, an increasing number of our authors have published their papers in journals with an impact factor. In this way, results of research in our country are available to the world, and the chance to find publications of authors from Serbia cited in the world’s leading citation databases is much higher.
