I'm looking at analysing student's work to identify how many sources they've obtained via Ebsco and JSTOR, to indicate how helpful subscriptions to those resources are.
I've used the usage statistics from both which are valuable, but it occurred to me downloading an article does not necessarily mean it's been used for an essay or dissertation, and looking at the citations from the angle of use in written work could be an interesting exercise.
I've done some research; there's a lot on citation analysis to indicate the relevance and importance of an academic / researcher's work, but not from the perspective I want.
Does anyone else do this?
