I have shared a file containing a sheet with a list of 8, 348 journal articles obtained from a basic search for the keywords “racial” and “etchnicity” in research papers mentioned online anytime as tracked by Altmetric.

Priego, Ernesto (2014) Altmetric Report of All Mentioned Articles with Keywords “racial” and “ethnicity” as of 28 August 2014 12:00 BST  figshare. http://dx.doi.org/10.6084/m9.figshare.1153816

The file contains a sheet with the list of all 8,438 bibliographic entries, including DOIs and URLs, and mention counts on different Web services as tracked by Altmetric.

The entries are ordered from the highest-scoring (best quality of online attention) down. The Altmetric score is a quantative measure of the quality and quantity of attention that a scholarly article has received.

I have edited the spreadsheet adding columns H, I and J, hoping any users of this data are interested in adding the type of access, license and, if applicable, price of each output.

This file has been shared with the intention of creating awareness of the scientific/academic literature mentioning the above-mentioned keywords being mentioned online as currently tracked by the altmetrics service employed to obtain the dataset. Data might require refining and deduplication.

Please note that the academic disciplines and methodologies represented in this dataset reflect the sources curated by the service employed. This is an unedited report obtained through a basic automated search so not all entries might be considered relevant and users will require to refine the data to fit their own needs. There is some very interesting and useful stuff there.
