Users, narcissism and control – tracking the impact of scholarly publications in the 21st century

Interested in learning more about new digital applications that allow for tracking and monitoring use and dissemination of scholarly works? What is the significance of tweets, likes and bookmarks noted for a scholarly work?  A report issued by the SURFfoundation, Users, narcissism and control–tracking the impact of scholarly publications in the 21st century, examines 16 tools that track social use of scholarly works.

This report explores the explosion of tracking tools that have accompanied the surge of web based information instruments. Is it possible to monitor ‘real-time’ how new research findings are being read, cited, used and transformed in practical results and applications? And what are the potential risks and disadvantages of the new tracking tools? This report aims to contribute to a better understanding of these developments by providing a detailed assessment of the currently available novel tools and methodologies. A total of 16 different tools are assessed.
