||Please write to e-mail email@example.com until August 31 your suggestions for purchase of new e-journals and databases that IOCB does not subscribe through the library yet and that you need for your work. Please write also the publisher of the title (or ISSN), because there are many chemical journals of similar name.
||The publisher Taylor & Francis Group announced that it will show also alternative indicators of reading, sharing and citation (so-called “altmetrics”) with their articles published from January 2012.
In addition to traditional indicators (number of citations in CrossRef, Web of Science and Scopus), users gain a more comprehensive picture of how many times a particular link was displayed or quoted in traditional (news) and social media (Twitter, Facebook, Google+, Wikipedia etc.), mentioned on a blog or stored in online citation managers.
Check out an example – click on the rainbow circle with the number and you get detailed data.
More about altmetrics in Wikipedia.
||There will be held 11th sell exhibition of scientific literature on IOCB on September 23.–24. You can now already order books that you want to bring to the exhibition. Please order on e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org, the order is non-obligatory.
