Citations and Circulation Counts: Data Sources for Monograph Deselection in Research Library Collections

Bruce White
2017 College and Research Libraries  
Libraries of all kinds periodically remove books from their shelves and dispose of them or move them into "just in case" storage collections, and this is as true of university libraries as it is of other  ...  This study will look at how this complex set of demands is played out in one particular sphere, the decision process around deselecting dated print monographs or relegating them to storage collections  ...  Acknowledgements The author wishes to thank Emeritus Professor Stephen Haslett and Associate Professor Ross Flett for their advice on the use of appropriate correlation measures and the presentation of  ...

Scholarly communication and bibliometrics

Christine L. Borgman, Jonathan Furner
2005 Annual Review of Information Science and Technology  
Many will have their own web sites where they post their work, and many will circulate their work to colleagues in electronic form, whether through direct distribution or through online pre-print servers  ...  Given the amount of attention these topics have received, what's new and exciting enough to warrant a full chapter in 2001?  ...  Acknowledgements The authors wish to thank Nadia Caidi for literature searches and compilation of materials and Blaise Cronin, Eugene Garfield, and four anonymous reviewers for their insightful comments  ...

Characterization, description, and considerations for the use of funding acknowledgement data in Web of Science

Adèle Paul-Hus, Nadine Desrochers, Rodrigo Costas
2016 Scientometrics  
Funding acknowledgements found in scientific publications have been used to study the impact of funding on research since the 1970s.  ...  However, no broad scale indexation of that paratextual element was done until 2008, when Thomson Reuters Web of Science started to add funding acknowledgement information to its bibliographic records.  ...  The authors also thank Mathilda Edmunds and Deepti Chikkam from Thomson Reuters for discussions about their internal documentation and for their input in the interpretation of the results.  ...

Trends in the Usage of ISI Bibliometric Data: Uses, Abuses, and Implications

Brian D. Cameron
2005 portal: Libraries and the Academy  
This paper will highlight the history of the development of impact factors, describe the limitations in their use, and provide a critique of the usage of impact factors in academic settings.  ...  A current trend is to use this data as a means for evaluating the performance of departments, institutions, and even researchers in academic institutions-a process that is now being tied to tenure and  ...  In addition, serial publication of segments of research, multiple publication of the same research either in identical or modified form, publishing more informal items like letters, editorials, and discussion  ...

A large-scale validation of the relationship between cross-disciplinary research and its uptake in policy-related documents, using the novel Overton altmetrics database

Henrique Pinheiro, Etienne Vignola-Gagné, David Campbell
2021 Quantitative Science Studies  
Citations to publications captured by Overton were found to originate in scientific advice documents, rather than in legislative or executive records.  ...  Using the new policyoriented database Overton, matched to Scopus, logistic regression was used in assessing this relationship in publications from FP7- and H2020-supported projects.  ...  Acknowledgements 851 The authors wish to thank Euan Adie of Overton for offering generous access to the database and his 852 contributions to its characterisation.  ...

Scores of a specific field-normalized indicator calculated with different approaches of field-categorization: Are the scores different or similar? [article]

Robin Haunschild, Angela D. Daniels, Lutz Bornmann
2021 arXiv   pre-print
Usage of field-normalized citation scores is a bibliometric standard.  ...  The main policy implication is that normalized citation impact scores or rankings based on them should not be compared without deeper knowledge of the classification systems that were used to derive these  ...  Acknowledgments The bibliometric data used in this paper are from an in-house database developed and maintained by the Max Planck Digital Library (MPDL, Munich) and derived from the Science Citation Index  ...

Altmetrics (Chapter from Beyond Bibliometrics: Harnessing Multidimensional Indicators of Scholarly Impact) [article]

Jason Priem
2015 arXiv   pre-print
This chapter discusses altmetrics (short for "alternative metrics"), an approach to uncovering previously-invisible traces of scholarly impact by observing activity in online tools and systems.  ...  I argue that citations, while useful, miss many important kinds of impacts, and that the increasing scholarly use of online tools like Mendeley, Twitter, and blogs may allow us to measure these hidden  ...  However, the lack of perfect or even strong correlation suggests that this altmetric, too, captures influence not reflected in the citation record.  ...

An Assessment of the Predictive Validity of Impact Factor Scores: Implications for Academic Employment Decisions in Social Work

Gary Holden, Gary Rosenberg, Kathleen Barker, Patrick Onghena
2006 Research on social work practice  
While there are frequent mentions in the literature of the IFS as an indicator of the impact or quality of scholars' work, little empirical work has been published regarding the validity of such use.  ...  Results: The relationship between journals' impact factor scores and the actual impact of articles published in those journals (predictive validity) was r = .41 (short term) and r = .42 (long term).  ...  Europeans were significantly more likely to indicate usage of the IFS in these ways. This is an indirect measure of actual use of the IFS.  ...

The Length and Semantic Structure of Article Titles—Evolving Disciplinary Practices and Correlations with Impact

Staša Milojević
2017 Frontiers in Research Metrics and Analytics  
We consistently analyze core literature in five diverse fields, in order to probe the usage of titles as a disciplinary identity building tool.  ...  This suggests that authors try to comply with the norms set in their fields. However, these norms are not fixed in time. Over the decades, the practices have changed, some of them quite abruptly.  ...  authors with a lot of collaborators tend to work on a smaller set of topics, as a group, than the ones who tend to work in smaller collaborations or alone.  ...

Mendeley readership as a filtering tool to identify highly cited publications

Zohreh Zahedi, Rodrigo Costas, Paul Wouters
2017 Journal of the Association for Information Science and Technology  
Also the share of publications with Mendeley readership scores is increasing from 84% in 2004 to 89% in 2009, and decreasing from 88% in 2010 to 82% in 2013.  ...  The main result of this study shows that readership scores are more effective (in terms of precision/recall values) than journal citation scores to identify highly cited publications across all fields  ...  Also, special thanks to Ludo Waltman, Alex Rushforth (CWTS) and the anonymous referees of the journal for their valuable comments on this paper.  ...

Performance-based publisher ratings and the visibility/impact of books: Small fish in a big pond, or big fish in a small pond?

Alesia A. Zuccala, Janne Pölönen, Raf Guns, Vidar Røeggen, Emanuel Kulczycki, Kasper Bruun, Eeva Savolainen
2021 Quantitative Science Studies  
But, just as the JIF is not recommended as a proxy for the "citedness" of a paper, a publisher rating is also not recommended as a proxy for the impact of an individual book.  ...  National publisher lists are used instead to account for the general "quality" of books, leading to institutional rewards.  ...  Acknowledgements The authors would like to thank the reviewers and the editor Ludo Waltman in particular for his valuable comments, as well as Adrian Díaz-Faes for his informal reviews of earlier drafts  ...

"What is a good digital library?" – A quality model for digital libraries

Marcos André Gonçalves, Bárbara L. Moreira, Edward A. Fox, Layne T. Watson
2007 Information Processing & Management  
For some key DL concepts, the (quality dimension, numerical indicator) pairs are illustrated through their application to a number of "real-world" digital libraries.  ...  In particular, we consider key concepts of a minimal DL: (with regard to efficiency), cost of migration (with respect to preservability), and number of service failures (to assess reliability).  ...  Average conformance of catalogs in NDLTD real-world collection such as in the Web or in hidden databases.  ...
