Almetrics of articles from the comics journals mentioned at least once in the past 1 year as tracked by Altmetric (20 August 2015)
Datasets usually provide raw data for analysis. This raw data often comes in spreadsheet form, but can be any collection of data, on which analysis can be performed.
This is a zipped version of a folder containing a ReadMe text file, a .csv and a .png file.
The text file provides contextual information such as provenance, methodology and how to cite information.
The .csv file is a bibliographic dataset containing an Altmetric Explorer report listing the 62 articles and their altmetrics from the comics journals tracked by Altmetric as mentioned on selected Web services at least once in the past 1 year.
The report includes the search results for articles published in the comics journals tracked by Altmetric: The Comics Grid: Journal of Comics Scholarship, Studies in Comics, Journal of Graphic Novels & Comics and ImageTexT: Interdisciplinary Comics Studies (the latter did not have any mentioned articles).
The report was obtained on Thursday 20 August 2015, 6pm BST.
Please note that future reports are very likely to differ, as social media activity changes over time and new articles are published; the articles are ordered by total Altmetric score in the reported period and data represents the time in which it was obtained and it is the result of the Altmetric algorithm.
The .png file is a chart visualising the tracked journals’ altmetrics activity in the reported period and it was obtained as a screenshot from the Altmetric Explorer workspace.
This data is shared for educational and research purposes.
