New Directions 2019 | Advancements and New Directions in Scholarly Indexing

We are all familiar with the most influential indexing services in academic publishing, including Web of Science and the Impact Factor as well as PubMed/MEDLINE, which indexes reputable research in life sciences and biomedical fields, but what about newly advancing indexing services that are driving fields forward? This session covers not only the ever-advancing influence of the Impact Factor, but also delves into how other metrics and resources (Google Scholar, Scopus, h-Indexes, and more) are advancing the legitimacy of the scientific record across the globe.
