Wikipedia-based altmetrics made some steps forward this month: a blog post looked at scholarly references cited on the English Wikipedia using the Cite doi template and identified the ten most cited ones. Only one of these was openly licensed - a description of a new species of moth, accompanied by a revision of the corresponding genus, Schrankia. In a next step, the citation counts were combined with page view stats, much like BaGLAMa (for which a new version has just been released) does this for categories on Wikimedia Commons.
This produced another top ten list, again with only one article being openly licensed - this time a revision of the dinosaur genus Triceratops. As a final step, the citations were aggregated by publisher (similar to the Wikipedia Cite-o-Meter, which has just been ported to Wikimedia Labs), thereby creating another top ten list, in which open-access publishers were not represented.
Inconsistent XML as a barrier to reuse of Open Access content
The following represents a selection of the ca. 300 files that have been uploaded by the Open Access Media Importer this month, bringing the total to over 16,100. If you can think of wiki pages where these files could be useful, please put them in there or let us know.
