Altmetrics, indicadores alternativos para las revistas de Comunicación de Web of Science

Repiso, Rafael; Castillo-Esparcia, Antonio; Torres-Salinas, Daniel

El objetivo de este estudio es analizar la aparición de revistas de comunicación en las llamadas Altmetrics (Facebook, Mendeley, Twitter, etc.) y cómo se relacionan estos indicadores entre sí y con las citas recibidas. Para ello, estudiamos la presencia en plataformas de los artículos publicados por las revistas de Comunicación de Journal Citation Reports of the Web of Science para el quinquenio 2013-2017 en la plataforma Altmetric.com. Los resultados muestran cómo sólo unas pocas plataformas tienen una
cobertura significativa para el estudio del conjunto y en el caso de Mendeley y Twitter, la cobertura es superior a las citas ofrecidas por Web of Science. Existe una relación comprobada entre las citas y su aparición en los medios y plataformas sociales, y su intensidad varía según el producto. En general, destacan las revistas con mayor número de citas (Journal of Computer Mediated, Journal of Communication o New Media & Society) con pocas excepciones (Continuum).
