mdelhaye's bookmarks 2019-01-20
This chapter explores the emergence of altmetrics and Open Access (OA) publishing and discusses why their adoption in management field lags behind other fields. We draw on the status literature to explain the positive and negative effects on scholarly communications underpinned by Impact Factor and high-status Toll Access journals. The chapter discusses both the promises and the dark sides of altmetrics and OA publishing and suggests some recommendations to move the management field towards a more open research programme in the digital era.
