The end of the impact factor as we know it?
Wanted to link in a post by Stephen Curry from his “Reciprocal Space” blog. Impact factors. I won’t summarize, as I’d rather people just click over there, read the post, as well as Drug Monkey’s different stance on Stephen’s position. (I’m not quite sure where I would fall, as I figure it needs a model to decide which option has more, um, impact. Oh, never mind).
But, I will link in the San Francisco Declaration on Research Assessment (which is on Stephen’s post too). Just so there will be multiple routes towards it.
(On Edit: Adding this other commentary on the Declaration on Research Assessment, from Science Mag)
