Impact of HBR Articles in the Scientific and Twitter Communities

See on Scoop.itDual impact of research; towards the impactelligent university

The Harvard Business Review invited openly to submit a data-vision on the archival history of the HBR. The goal of this prospect to generate analysis and visualizations from the metadata and abstracts of every article they have published over the last 90 years. Winning entries will be featured in the Vision Statement feature of the upcoming 90th anniversary issue.


The competition generated a series of great visualizations. One of the entries focused on two types of impact that Harvard Business Review (HBR) articles can have:


Citation Impact: Articles with deep insight get cited by other peer reviewed articles. Large number of citations usually implies [under the absence of spam], a high-impact article


Twitter Impact: Social media has become the new content discovery channel. In the second type of impact, we study how are HBR URLs shared on twitter.
