English abstract

In the past 10 years, webometrics has increased dramatically. Not only is the term used more often, there are more articles and even monographs on the topic, and at least one professor has been appointed in the field. The next step is to face how to merge or federate parts of the open Web, dedicated scientific Web segments, like Google Scholar and CiteSeer and/or open as well as closed repositories and archives belonging to publishers and universities for research evaluation purposes with mixed indicators. This requires novel or alternative data collection methods and fusion techniques for performing reliable and sophisticated analyses.
