Articles with Ebola mentioned online anytime as tracked by Altmetric, with crowdsourced type of access and license
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 file was created, shared, coordinated and rapidly refined and edited by Ernesto Priego.
The main bibliographic and altmetrics data in this file was obtained using the Altmetric Explorer searching for mentions of "Ebola" anytime.
The Altmetric Explorer is available via http://www.altmetric.com/
Ernesto Priego created the original report and shared it as this Google doc with the instructions in the ReadMe sheet on this file. He promoted the crowdsourcing of the access and license types of each article.
The crowdsourcing of this dataset was completed from Wednesday 6 August to Wednesday 13 August 2014.
This file contains the complete dataset of 496 bibliographic entries; one sheet with the 133 entries from the dataset found to be Open Access (this includes NC licenses) and one sheet with the 95 entries found to have CC-BY licenses. Users can use filters to find the different access types and licenses; data refining is likely to be required.
The original, crowdsourced version of this dataset is available in slightly different form at
