New Bibliography Provides List of Altmetrics Sources
Digital Scholarship released the Altmetrics Bibliography on its website to serve as a resource for understanding altmetrics.
The bibliography is a listing of more than 50 English-language articles and technical reports that explore topics such as the impact of scientists’ personal webpages, journal evaluation using social bookmarking data, and the difference between bibliographic and web citations. It does not feature certain online media, including MP3 files, presentation slides, or blog posts.
The resources date from January 2001 to September 2013 and are all linked to their freely available online versions. Unavailable titles are linked to their publishers’ descriptions.
Digital Scholarship is an open access (OA) publisher that provides information and commentary on digital copyright, digital repositories, scholarly communication, and other OA issues.
Publisher Charles W. Bailey Jr. authored the bibliography, which is available under a Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial 3.0 United States license.
