www.harzing.com: a resource site for academics
Since 1999 Anne-Wil maintains an extensive website (http://www.harzing.com). This website provides information, online papers and resources about her areas of research. It also presents resources to assist with academic publishing and the assessment of research and journal quality, as well as software to conduct citation analysis.
