Abstract: A DIGEST OF Khabsa, M. & Giles, C. Lee (2014). “The number of scholarly documents on the public web”. Plos One, v. 9, n. 5, e93949. doi:10.1371/journal.pone.0093949 http://www.plosone.org/article/info%3Adoi%2F10.1371%2Fjournal.pone.0093949
How many academic documents are visible and freely available on the Web? This is nothing more and nothing less than the tricky question that Khabsa and Giles intends to answer in their work recently published in Plos One in May 2014, with which the review series of Google Scholar Digest starts. The inclusion of this work in our newsletter is justified not only because Google Scholar is used as a source, but also because it tries to partly estimate its size, though limited to documents written in English. The structure of this digest consists of the research questions raised, the design and methodology, and the principal results obtained. Finally a brief discussion is offered as well, providing some open questions that this work suggests, related in particular to the characteristics of Google Scholar as a source, and in general to its use in the study of science and scientific communication.
