Books to understand academic publishing and research metrics

The library has just purchased two new titles about academic publishing and research metrics.

They give an overview of the main tools for measuring impact and a summary of main issues and terminology in academic publishing. These titles were recommended in the London School of Economics and Political Sciences’ Impact Blog.

Both titles are ebooks, so they can be accessed from anywhere: research: what everyone needs to know. communication: what everyone needs to know.

Happy reading!
