The good folks at the Oxford University Press have compiled a list of words of the year culled from various sources around the world.
Based on new media mentions (blog posts, Facebook, Reddit, Google+, Twitter, and news stories), Altmetric has complied the top academic papers for the year. You can search by journal, institution, category, country, and access type. Of the 100, almost 40 are open-access; one of these we are most interested in reading is “Searching the Internet for evidence of time travelers.”
They are divided into fiction and poetry, and non-fiction. Each title is linked to the book review as it appeared in the paper.
For those willing to brave the crowds, this list should help you navigate.
