Extending journal-based research impact assessment to book-based disciplines.
The ‘impact’ of academic research is typically measured by how much it is read, used and cited, and by how much new work it influences. Services that measure impact work well for journal-based disciplines. Book-based disciplines can now benefit from online tools and methods of impact analysis too. These analyses also predict fruitful directions for future research, and so can inform research assessment and funding. This project will extend tools for online bibliometric data collection of publications and their citations with the aim of testing and evaluating new Web metrics to assist research assessment in book-based disciplines.
