Spain was in 2013 the leading European country in MOOC course offerings and is in a leading position worldwide in the number of massive courses offered in 2014 This prolific activity is being transferred to the educational and scientific world in the form of posts in blogs, social networks and web pages, as well as scientific papers and books that attempt to analyze the movement from different methodological approaches. To date there is not any research that analyzes the bibliometric impact of MOOC movement in the Spanish scientific community. Therefore the objective of this research is to perform a bibliometric study of the scientific impact in the form of scientific article or research book in journals and Spanish publishers from January 2010 to June 2014. The study was approached from a descriptive and quantitative methodology taking as reference bibliometric indicators of production, number of citations, and indicators of visibility according to their impact on different databases: Wos / Social Science Citation Index, Scopus, In-Recs, Google Scholar and categorization of Spanish scientific journals (ANEP / FECYT). The results show that the impact of the Spanish scientific production in form of book and scientific article in prestigious international databases (Wos-SSCI / Scopus) is very low, although the national impact categorization according to ANEP / FECYT and In-Recs is moderately high.
