Web Indicators for Research Evaluation: A Practical Guide

This book describes and evaluates a range of web indicators (altmetrics,
webometrics, web metrics) for aspects of societal or scholarly impact. The
recent increasing demand for research evaluation within universities and other
research organizations has shown that traditional citation-based indicators do
not reflect the societal impacts of research and are slow to appear. Michael
Thelwall outlines practical strategies for obtaining many web indicators after a
discussion of the theory and practices of using and evaluating web indicators
for research assessment. In addition to describing traditional scholarly outputs
such as journal articles and monographs, it also covers web indicators for
videos, datasets, software and other non-standard scholarly outputs.
