Alternative metrics at ULg
27/05/2015

Alternative impact metrics, or "altmetrics", have been used to complete traditional bibliometric indicators (SCImago Journal Rank [SJR], Impact Factor [IF], EigenFactor, h-index...) for some years now. The ULg Library now displays those new metrics on both ORBi and the "ULg Collections".

The Eigenfactor website has submitted an interactive graph which displays the link between the publication costs (APC) of Open Access GOLD journals and their prestige (or Cost Effectiveness).

This graph cross-checks and plots the data concerning the cost of APCs (Authors Processing Charges) produced by journalprices.com, with the data on the number of citations collated by Journal Citation Reports, which allocated the Impact Factor (IF). All the journals considered here thus have an IF.

Thanks to filtering by domain, this graph enables authors to rapidly see which journals with Impact Factor offer the best service (visibility, prestige, quality, etc.) for the best prices in their discipline. Cost and quality are not necessarily linked! Try it!

ORBi (Open Repository and Bibliography)

In may 2007, the ULg's Administrative Board (joined in June 2007 by the FUSAGx) decided to create an institutional repository and defined a strong institutional self-archiving policy to increase the visibility, accessibility and impact of the University's publications (Board's decision).

This decision led to the official launch, in November 2008, of the ORBi platform including both the Academic Bibliography and the Institutional Repository of the Wallonia-Europe University Academy.
