Google Scholar Metrics provide an easy way for authors to quickly gauge the visibility and influence of recent articles in scholarly publications. Scholar Metrics summarize recent citations to many publications, to help authors as they consider where to publish their new research.

Browse the top Articles from the top 100 publications
In publishing the h5 index for their Top 100 publications in Google Scholar Metrics, the top articles cited are also included. When viewing the Top 100 publications, click on the h5 index score to see the most highly cited articles from that journal (h5-core). Then, you can click on the citation count for any article in the h5-core to see who cited it.
This disclaimer accompanies the top articles cited: "Dates and citation counts are estimated and are determined automatically by a computer program."
Google Scholar has adapted the h-index method of impact for publications and an h5 variation for five complete calendar years.
From Google Scholar:
"The h-index of a publication is the largest number h such that at least h articles in that publication were cited at least h times each. For example, a publication with five articles cited by, respectively, 17, 9, 6, 3, and 2, has the h-index of 3.
The h-core of a publication is a set of top cited h articles from the publication. These are the articles that the h-index is based on. For example, the publication above has the h-core with three articles, those cited by 17, 9, and 6.
The h-median of a publication is the median of the citation counts in its h-core. For example, the h-median of the publication above is 9. The h-median is a measure of the distribution of citations to the articles in the h-core.
The h5-index, h5-core, and h5-median of a publication are, respectively, the h-index, h-core, and h-median of only those of its articles that were published in the last five complete calendar years."
From Google Scholar:
"Scholar Metrics currently cover articles published between 2009 and 2013, both inclusive. The metrics are based on citations from all articles that were indexed in Google Scholar in June 2014. This also includes citations from articles that are not themselves covered by Scholar Metrics.
Since Google Scholar indexes articles from a large number of websites, we can't always tell in which journal a particular article has been published. To avoid misidentification of publications, we have included only the following items:
Furthermore, we have specifically excluded the following items:
Overall, Scholar Metrics cover a substantial fraction of scholarly articles published in the last five years. However, they don't currently cover a large number of articles from smaller publications."
