There has also been a noticeable change in the way researchers, publishers and the public create, disseminate, use, analyse and evaluate scholarly information. It is not only the means of changed channels of scholarly communication that have been strongly affected, but also the way in which researchers are assessed, influencing their career and the prestige of the affiliated research and academic institutions.
