Science, when communicated exclusively in English, risks not fully meeting its third mission, which is to inform the public. Never before have we seen this phenomenon as intensified as it has been throughout the COVID-19 pandemic. Ideally health-related studies, measures, and responses can be produced and examined by scientists, professionals, governing authorities, and individuals with the benefit of time. In the case of COVID-19, scientific communities have been called upon to assert new knowl...

Abstract We propose a new metric called ‘alt-index’, which is analagous to the h-index, but uses altmetrics data to measure both the volume and social media activity of scientific literature. The dataset includes over 1.1 million papers and their associated altmetrics score. A correlation analysis of the h-index and alt-index is conducted at three different levels: field level, source (journal) level, and author level. Our results show a strong positive correlation between the two indexes across...

Following the ‘black–white swan’ interaction metaphor introduced in an earlier study, we now trace and observe a new ‘swan groups’ pattern. Our motivation for introducing the ‘swan groups’ is based on the fact that ‘black–white swan’ interactions are observed primarily in physics, which belongs to science. We extend a newer model called ‘swan groups’ model and test its applicability to the field of economics, belonging to social sciences. The primary feature of this model is that the ‘black swan...

In May 2016, an article published in Scientometrics, titled ‘Taking scholarly books into account: current developments in five European countries’, introduced a comparison of book evaluation schemes implemented within five European countries. The present article expands upon this work by including a broader and more heterogeneous set of countries (19 European countries in total) and adding new variables for comparison. Two complementary classification models were used to point out the commonalit...

In this chapter, we focus on the specialists who have helped to improve the conditions for book assessments in research evaluation exercises, with empirically based data and insights supporting their greater integration. Our review highlights the research carried out by four types of expert communities—the monitors, the subject classifiers, the indexers, and the indicator constructionists. Many challenges lie ahead for scholars affiliated with these communities, particularly the latter three. By...

Just as citations to a book can be counted, so can that book's libcitations—the number of libraries in a consortium that hold it. These holdings counts per title can be obtained from the consortium's union catalog, such as OCLC's WorldCat. Librarians seeking to serve their customers well must be attuned to various kinds of merit in books. The result in WorldCat is a great variation in the libcitations particular books receive. The higher a title's count (or percentile), the more famous it is—eit...
