LSE Impact blog

Academic profiling services are a pervasive feature of scholarly life. Alberto Martín Martín, Enrique Orduna-Malea and Emilio Delgado López-Cózar discuss the advantages and disadvantages of major profile platforms and look at the role of ego in how these services are built and used.
