Do “altmetrics” correlate with citations? Extensive comparison of altmetric indicators with citations from a multidisciplinary perspective
The results confirm that the presence and density of social media altmetrics counts are still very low and not very frequent among scientific publications, with 15%–24% of the publications presenting some altmetric activity and concentrated on the most recent publications, although their presence is increasing over time.
The h-index: Advantages, limitations and its relation with other bibliometric indicators at the micro level
Characterizing Social Media Metrics of Scholarly Papers: The Effect of Document Properties and Collaboration Patterns
Findings suggest that factors driving social media and citations are different and social media metrics cannot actually be seen as alternatives to citations; at most, they may function as complements to other type of indicators.
How well developed are altmetrics? A cross-disciplinary analysis of the presence of ‘alternative metrics’ in scientific publications
The main result of the study is that the altmetrics source that provides the most metrics is Mendeley, with metrics on readerships for 62.6 % of all the publications studied, other sources only provide marginal information.
Users, narcissism and control – tracking the impact of scholarly publications in the 21st century
This report explores the explosion of tracking tools that have accompanied the surge of web based information instruments. Is it possible to monitor ‘real-time’ how new research findings are being…
Is g-index better than h-index? An exploratory study at the individual level
G-index is more sensitive than h-index in the assessment of selective scientists, since this type of scientist shows in average a higher g-index/h-index ratio and a better position in g- index rankings than in the h- index ones.
F1000 Recommendations as a Potential New Data Source for Research Evaluation: A Comparison With Citations
There turns out to be a clear correlation between F1000 recommendations and citations, but the correlation is relatively weak, at least weaker than the correlation between journal impact and citations.
A bibliometric classificatory approach for the study and assessment of research performance at the individual level: The effects of age on productivity and impact
The classificatory approach proposed herein may prove a useful tool in support of research assessment at the individual level and for exploring potential determinants of research success.

Approaching the "reward triangle": General analysis of the presence of funding acknowledgments and "peer interactive communication" in scientific publications
A general bibliometric analysis on the new “funding acknowledgment” (FA) information available in the Web of Science, where it is observed that publications with FAs present a higher impact as compared with publications without them.
