Beyond Bibliometrics: Harnessing Multidimensional Indicators of Scholarly Impact | Information & Culture

In a fit of genius, J. Britt Holbrook and colleagues from the Center for the Study of Interdisciplinarity at the University of North Texas proposed a list of 56 Indicators of Impact, ranging from “# of citations” to “meetings with important ppl.”[1] Subsequently published in the hallowed pages of Nature under the heading “Research impact: We need negative metrics too,” Holbrook’s index represents a fitting case study from which the theme of Blaise Cronin and Cassidy Sugimoto’s book emerges; the depth of what we know or can know about measuring the impact of a scholarly object is no longer contained in the h-index alone.
