Marcus Du Sautoy says of peer-review, in the Guardian:
“We live in an age where everything has to be sealed and delivered and complete when it’s delivered and complete when it meets a journal and, in fact, that’s not how science is done”

I really like the idea of more ‘living’ documents. For this specific text however, I think a paragraph about the possibilities and perspectives for this new kind of text – both in academia, popular media and elsewhere.

Hey Joe, interesting paper which summarises the failings (and uses) of traditional mentrix in classifying impact. I am assuming that the paper (by mentioning alternative forms of impact) attempts to draw out these altmethods by mentioning CoPs in academia. I miss a more comprehensive overview of emergent impact metrics although places like Mendeley are mentioned. while PhD students understand text well, there is a lack of images/illustrations/summary tables. rock on

hey Joe, have you defined “value” anywhere? If so, it wasn’t too clear for me.

—> story by Reinhart, Rogoff, & Herndon…. if you haven’t mentioned this before don’t mention new material in the conclusion…

I don’t remember if you mentioned the altmanifesto at the beginning, if not you should…
April 28, 2013 at 2:22 pm
possibly mentioned too late? also I would argue it to be worth if you were to summarize some of the discussion around traditional methods by an illustration, such as a table or sketch…

this all seems to be more part of the literature analaysis and not yet of the discussion. putting the alt metrix definition, limitations and advantages much further would be useful to link it up more closely with the discussion on impact and to then focus on new metrix and CoP. also, I think your discussion on the definition of impact might be made shorter just by focusing on the main point that we need some way of “measuring impact” — one old one are the trad methods… bring them closer to the impact section. I start to repeat myself

I agree to your above comment as this paragraph appears to be a key statement for your paper and I would recommend to use it as an introduction to the discussion of new metrix in combination with the stuff on CoPs that you got earlier….

it might be worth to use the same thing here and use it at the beginning when talking about the h-index etc. you might have done that – beg you pardon if you did, since my memory is exhibiting holes on occasion
