it says it's in press,  but does it indicate which journals are included in the various platforms?

i.e. Web of Science journals, etc   

also what is an iSchool type academic  and expert judgments  in terms of correlations and citations.   these will be interesting to take a closer look at .  thanks for sharing the alert

Cheers, Karen Weaver
