In the final of our series of articles on our article metrics service is an exploration of the third element.
Today we discuss our collaboration with Altmetrics who provide a more detailed analysis of the online sharing of articles published in Libertas journals.
Altmetrics use the latest technology to monitor hundreds of thousands of tweets, blog posts, and news stories for references to articles published in Libertas journals and make information on sharing available to authors and readers through each article homepage.
Information is broken down into the website used to share the article and the person sharing the article (public, researcher etc.).
Articles are also ranked within the journal in terms of recent popularity and given an Altmetric score comparable across different articles and other publishers.
I would like to say that this is the most author-friendly editing process I have experienced in over 50 publications. The publishing process of this journal was a most pleasant and productive experience. I was particularly impressed with the regular updates of the progress of my submission. My experience with Libertas Academica was excellent.
All authors are surveyed after their articles are published. Authors are asked to rate their experience in a variety of areas, and their responses help us to monitor our performance. Presented here are their responses in some key areas. No 'poor' or 'very poor' responses were received; these are represented in the 'other' category.See Our Results
