Plum Analytics™ considers books an important research output or artifact, as demonstrated by our use of OCLC WorldCat metrics (see this blog for more information). We are now expanding our support of books with metrics from Goodreads.
Goodreads’ mission is to help people find and share books they love. With over 30 million members and 900 million books, Goodreads is the world’s largest site for readers and book recommendations. While Goodreads is a force in popular literature, the site also includes many important academic books, especially in humanities and social sciences.
Using the Goodreads API, PlumXTM now includes:
- Goodreads Ratings
- Goodreads Reviews
- Goodreads Readers
