Change is constant in scholarly publishing; nowhere more than in the world of metrics. Here, four industry leaders offer Tim Gillett some predictions for the future

Dr. Martijn Roelandse, head of publishing innovation, Springer Nature: Metrics for books. Books, like journals, are cited in scholarly literature, are mentioned more and more in social media and online platforms and are downloaded. We have been pioneering this area with Bookmetrix, a joint project from Altmetric and Springer, but we see some uptake from other publishers and A&I platforms as well. Scopus is expanding their indexing activities for books and Times Higher Education is now using book citations, in addition to article citations, for their university ranking.

A bit is a binary digit, the smallest increment of data on a computer. A bit can hold only one of two values: 0 or 1, corresponding to the electrical values of off or on, respectively.

Because bits are so small, you rarely work with information one bit at a time. Bits are usually assembled into a group of eight to form a byte . A byte contains enough information to store a single ASCII character, like "h".
