English abstract

The trace a publication leaves on the internet gives rise to an unprecedented amount of information about its use. Academic life is affected by the ability of powerful companies to collect and exploit such data. Google scholar and academia.edu are presented as exemplary cases. It is argued that serious concerns can be raised against the way these technical advances are increasingly being used.

German abstract

Veröffentlichungen hinterlassen eine bis vor Kurzem unrealisierbare Spur im Internet. Der Wissenschaftsbetrieb ist davon zunehmend betroffen. Mächtige Firmen sammeln solche Informationen und werten sie für ihre Zwecke aus. Als Beispiele werden Google Scholar und academia.edu vorgestellt. Ernsthafte Bedenken gegen den sich abzeichnenden verstärkten Gebrauch solcher Daten sind angezeigt.
