  11. 11. Types of Data • Citations ! • Usage ! • Bookmarks ! • Conversation 11
  12. 12. Citations • Traditional and valued ! • Less consistent than most think – WoS, Scopus, CrossRef, (Europe)PMC • Track a very specific kind of usage • Only track a very specific kind of usage • Accumulate very slowly 12
  13. 13. Usage • Page views, downloads ! • Measure usage by a wider community • Measure greater range of use • Inconsistent between publishers • Rarely get demographics of viewers • Difficult to distinguish form of impact on usage data alone (“funny title” problem) • Available on publication 13
  14. 14. Bookmarks • Academic and “public” facing sites – People collecting literature – Building a library ! • Measure greater range of use vs cites • Focus on use by researchers (Mendeley) • Rely on service providers • Accumulate quickly 14
  15. 15. Conversations/Social Media • Twitter, Facebook, Blogs, News sites – Sharing literature within communities – Conversations about literature ! • Open to the public (but often actually driven by/involving researchers) • Rich demographic information (Twitter) • Potential bias and detection problems • Accumulate quickly 15
