Some Metrics for Research Articles

These days I fount that for researchers, there are more ways to measure their value than just their number of citations and correlate with the impact factors of the journals where they publish.

My initial routine would be something like: edit the source code on a PC zip the code and some node_modules bundled from another plugin load the plugin in volumio This presents several issues: Slow deployment cycle (even if partially automated) […]

Check Duplicated Paths with LoDash (and Angular 2)
