Hello Taxacom people,
A few months(?) ago there was a very interesting posting on Taxacom
about ways of measuring the impact of taxonomic publications. Someone
pointed out that the number of web links to an article was an
instructive alternative to the classic impact factor, and that this
kind of analysis showed that articles in Zootaxa got as many web
links as articles in Cell or Science.
My problem is that I can't locate that posting again. Can anyone help
out by pointing out where in the archives of Taxacom I can find this
posting, or even where else I might be able to get more information
on this approach, specifically regarding how it relates to taxonomy?
Thanks in advance!
