Impact Factor and Scholarly Research: The Traditional Media with a Social Media Influence
College of Aviation
The research method for this project – examining the dissemination of research artifacts through social media as well as the impact social media can have on scholarly research – originated with Brent Bowen of Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University (ERAU) at the Prescott, Arizona campus and Dean E. Headley of Wichita State University. Bowen and Headley introduced the Airline Quality Rating (AQR) in early 1993 as an objective method for comparing and scoring airline performance in areas deemed to be important for consumers. Scores are calculated by defining 15-elements in four major areas, focusing on airline performance and the significance of the factors to consumers of air travel in a given calendar year.
