Scholarometer: A System for Crowdsourcing Scholarly Impact Metrics

, , , und . Proceedings of the 2014 ACM Conference on Web Science, Seite 285--286. New York, NY, USA, ACM, (2014)


Scholarometer (scholarometer.indiana.edu) is a social tool developed to facilitate citation analysis and help evaluate the impact of authors. The Scholarometer service allows scholars to compute various citation-based impact measures. In exchange, users provide disciplinary annotations of authors, which allow for the computation of discipline-specific statistics and discipline-neutral impact metrics. We present here two improvements of our system. First, we integrated a new universal impact metric hs that uses crowdsourced data to calculate the global rank of a scholar across disciplinary boundaries. Second, improvements made in ambiguous name classification have increased the accuracy from 80% to 87%.
