Following in the footsteps of the model of scientific communication, which has recently gone through a metamorphosis (from the Gutenberg galaxy to the Web galaxy), a change in the model and methods of scientific evaluation is also taking place. [...] Key Method A sample of 814 authors (researchers in Bibliometrics with a public profile created in GSC) was subsequently searched in the other platforms, collecting the main indicators computed by each of them. The data collection was carried out on September, 2015…Expand

Google Scholar as a source for scholarly evaluation: A bibliographic review of database errors
TLDR
The results indicate that the bibliographic corpus dedicated to errors in Google Scholar is still very limited, excessively fragmented, and diffuse; the findings have not been based on any systematic methodology or on units that are comparable to each other, so they cannot be quantified, or their impact analysed, with any precision.

Bibliometrics and beyond: some thoughts on web-based citation analysis
TLDR
This work states that as scientific publication moves to the web, and novel approaches to scholarly communication and peer review establish themselves, new methods of citation and link analysis will emerge to capture often liminal expressions of peer esteem, influence and approbation. Expand
Bibliometrics to webometrics
TLDR
The distance that bibliometrics has travelled since 1958 is reviewed by comparing early bibliometric practice with current practice, and by giving an overview of a range of recent developments, such as patent analysis, national research evaluation exercises, visualization techniques, new applications, online citation indexes, and the creation of digital libraries.

Early approaches to bibliometrics
TLDR
Though bibliometrics is relatively new as an identifiable subdiscipline, it seems appropriate to consider at least as forerunners of bibliometric studies the earliest counts of numbers of books and similar items, for in some way these enumerations were the foundations of laterrefined studies.
