Description

The Social Media Engine relies on interactive computer-mediated technologies and the increased impact, readership, and alt-metrics present in open access repositories—while fostering public engagement, open social scholarship, and social knowledge creation by matching readers with publications. In this paper I focus on a discussion that explores the possibilities of integrating a search engine that ranks its results according to trends in social media with large-scale open access repositories. Ultimately, this discussion aims to explore the implications of creating tools to emphasize the connections between documents that can be treated as objects of study as well.
