Whose metrics? Citation, usage and access metrics as scholarly information service
Abstract:As the Internet has enhanced the collection and provision of citation, usage, and access metrics, the challenge lies neither in the technology nor the method, but in constructing databases that deliver services of value to the scholar. The question everybody should be asking is: what kind of metric information services would serve scholars? One example is given of the systems that might well help a postdoctoral researcher.
