New post in our blog: New metrics for new models of evaluation by Cat Chimes of Altmetric

#SpringerOpenBlog

http://bit.ly/1JzOGn7
Scholarly publishing has long relied on the expertise of editors and pre-publication closed peer review to determine the quality and significance of a research article, and in turn the overall content of a journal. How does the introduction of more granular metrics at the individual article level impact this approach, and what value do they add?

Even if the Impact Factor has issues—should we still evaluate journals? And if so, how? A new post in our blog covers these questions

#impactfactor   #openaccess  
Should we judge the quality of articles based on the journals that published them, and if so, how do we judge whether or not those journals are good at this evaluation? Put more briefly—how do we evaluate the evaluators?

Springer's portfolio of fully open access journals and books
Introduction
SpringerOpen is Springer's portfolio of fully open access journals, which cover all disciplines within the science, technology, and medicine (STM) fields, giving authors the opportunity to publish open access. Together with BioMed Central, SpringerOpen publishes over 500 fully open access journals, including SpringerPlus, our open access journal, covering all disciplines of science in one. SpringerOpen is committed to maintaining high standards through full and stringent peer review. Many of the SpringerOpen journals are citation-tracked and some already have Impact Factors. All research articles published in a SpringerOpen journal may be freely accessed, re-used and re-distributed. SpringerOpen supports several international archives and digital repositories, and encourages self-archiving by authors.
 
The growing demand for open access publishing across all disciplines led Springer to expand the open access program to fully open access books. As further addition to the already established SpringerOpen journal portfolio now authors in all areas of science, technology and medicine (STM) have the option to publish open access books.
