Dear Colleagues, Dear Mr Zargaryan,
For years I was following the happenings of bibliometrics locally and
internationally. International databases, which provide bibliometrical data,
so far are the only means to evaluate science. If such data is not extended
by local, special (subject) information, science evaluation practice is
facing the imperfection.
Open access sources, empowered with modern bibliometrical search facilities,
could be used for measures, as you asked. The question is would such data
be accepted in science evaluation at state or institution level.
Your question is more than hot. Hope the discussion will involve metrics

Subject: Re: [EIFLoa] Themed EIFL-OA weeks
good initiative, and I am interested to know more about tools and approaches
for bibliometric (or scientometric) measures for OA journals with local
impact (not integrated in the international publooishers databases).
Beside 'Publish or Perish' what other solutions we can use?

It is nice idea, I will promote it in Poland, your topics are very good.
I am interested now in the subject of export and import data from one
repository to another. In Poland, now we have this situation that we
begin to establish institutional repositories, and our Polish articles
are scattered across the world's repositories. I wonder if I had the
ability to import data from other repositories, or their managers will
be more cooperative.
Authors I will probably have to ask at home on the university for
permission? Maybe someone ran such operations, and can advise how to
go about it?
Copyright will be quite important in this case.
