In this third part we will discuss alternative data sources that can be used for bibliometric purposes. Specifically, we will address Google Scholar and Microsoft Academic. After describing each of these sources, we will present the different services they offer, the use that has been made for each service and describe their main features. Their strengths and weaknesses will be discussed and compared with other bibliometric tools. Finally, we will reflect on their potential use for research evaluation purposes.
