Abstract

This technical report shows the discussions of the Workgroup 8—The relevance of academic books to research communication—in the Rede Scielo Meeting and includes the results of five studies on academic books within the scientific communication context. The workgroup dynamic had two moments of presentations, during the morning and the afternoon, always starting with oral reports and followed by debates. The discussions indicate the need to create strategies that allow the qualitative assessment of academic productions, valuation of the book in the scientific environment, and adoption of courses of action that take not only citations as relevant in the impact factor into account, but also metrics that allow an extended altmetrics analysis.
