Measures of experience and scientometrics to evaluate the impact of scientific production

“Experiencimetrics” is proposed as a measure of researchers’ academic experience, to complement the existing measure, scientometrics, when evaluating expertise in research. The article is partly based on the author’s scientific output, and explores the possibilities of analyzing impact from a qualitative perspective. A synthesis is produced, with possible implications for this analysis, highlighting some options for evaluating the impact of research and articles which are not limited to counting author’s citations in order to calculate the impact factor.
