BIBLIOMETRICS AND OPEN ACCESS: FIGHTING FOR COMMON SENSE « The Joys of Teaching Literature

acavaminombre's bookmarks 2018-07-17

Summary:

"My topic today is the corporate hold on academic research on two different but closely interrelated fronts: open access and bibliometrics. Open access policies are very simple to understand: the publications generated by research funded with public money should be available for free to anyone interested. This is, simply, not happening. Bibliometrics used to be a system designed to aid university librarians to choose how to invest their meagre, or large, resources into the best journals available but became about ten years ago an Orwellian way of measuring what cannot be measured: scholarly reputation and impact."
