Free bibliometrics for all

In Uncategorized on July 3, 2008 by Alan Lovell Tagged: ,

Should you be into bibliometrics, take a look at eigenfactor.org. It looks pretty and has lots of useful stuff, even if you don’t use the eigen factors score itself. And it’s all free! Here’s who’s behind it:

“Eigenfactor.org is a non-commercial academic research project sponsored by the Bergstrom lab in the Department of Biology at the University of Washington. We aim to develop novel methods for evaluating the influence of scholarly periodicals and for mapping the structure of academic research. We are committed to sharing our findings with interested members of the public, including librarians, journal editors, publishers, and authors of scholarly articles.”
