June 18 NISO Virtual Conference: Keynote Speaker: Altmetrics at the Portfolio Level

  1. 1. Paul Groth @pgroth Web & Media Group Department of Computer Science The Network Institute VU University Amsterdam http://www.few.vu.nl/~pgroth Altmetrics at the portfolio level
  2. 2. NIH Data Book – (http://report.nih.gov/ndb/index.aspx) Data provided by the Division of Information Services, Reporting Branch Research Project Grants Applications, awards, and success rates
  3. 3. Metrics: Do metrics matter? Nature 2010 http://doi.org/10.1038/465860a "Outside letters basically trump everything," says Robert Simoni, chairman of the biology department at Stanford University in California.
  4. 4. “Imagine how the academic appointment process might change if search and review committees had access—within an appropriately tagged or linked online CV, for example, or via the ORCID system— to information about the specific contributions made by a candidate to each of his/her works, including contributions that might not otherwise have qualified for ‘authorship’ status?” Point of view: Faculty appointments and the record of scholarship Amy Brand http://dx.doi.org/10.7554/eLife.00452
  5. 5. Point of view: Faculty appointments and the record of scholarship Amy Brand http://dx.doi.org/10.7554/eLife.00452 Slide 3: http://article-level-metrics.plos.org/files/2013/10/Brand.pptx Opportunities • Individuals and institutions need better tools for curating and networking their own record of scholarship • Institutions need more information about scholarly contribution • ALMs that reliably differentiate sources of input (general; academic; expert; etc.) would be more useful”
  6. 6. ENTER ALTMETRICS
  7. 7. Altmetrics is the study and use of scholarly impact measures based on activity in online tools and environments. http://doi.org/10.1371/journal.pone.0048753
  8. 8. http://blog.peerj.com/post/65345738206/changing-the-currency-of-science-to-solve-our-greatest
  9. 9. Thanks Ian Mulvany
  10. 10. ALTMETRICS AS MEASURES OF IMPACT?
  11. 11. “It took approximately a generation (20 years) for bibliographic citation analysis to achieve acceptability as a measure of academic impact." (Vaughan and Shaw, 2003)
  12. 12. The Research is Happening http://jasonpriem.org/self-archived/5uni-poster.png (Birkholtz et al. 2013) (Fausto et al 2012) http://ploscollections.org/altmetrics http://asis.org/Bulletin/Apr-13/AprMay13_Piwowar.html
  13. 13. http://www.cwts.nl/pdf/CWTS-WP-2013-003.pdf
  14. 14. Altmetrics 2014 Zahedi, Zohreh; Fenner, Martin; Costas, Rodrigo (2014): How consistent are altmetrics providers? Study of 1000 PLOS ONE publications using the PLOS ALM, Mendeley and Altmetric.com APIs. figshare. http://dx.doi.org/10.6084/m9.figshare.1041821
  15. 15. http://www.slideshare.net/paulwouters1/issi2013-wg-pw
  16. 16. Bottom Line: use altmetrics as evidence in a larger story
  17. 17. WHAT’S THE LARGER STORY?
  18. 18. DIFFERENT AGGREGATIONS
  19. 19. Aggregations • Institutional Level – See the next talk • Faculty • Department • Group
  20. 20. Aggregations • Institutional Level – See the next talk • Faculty • Department • Group • Most interesting: adhoc Groups
  21. 21. Projects • Typical lifetime 2-5 years • Networks of sub-groups • Networks of projects • Different measures of success Snia Bpd Fiat Group http://cordis.rkbexplorer.com/id/ a Valenc ization-fc758 LASER ZENTRUM HANNOVER E.V. http://cordis.rkbexplorer.com/id/organization-9c08bc3c346074 GEMETEC Aachen Gesellschaft f¸ http://cordis.rkbexplorer.com/id/organization-54f41a7353577 ELLINOGERMANIKI AGOGI S.A. http://cordis.rkbexplorer.com/id/organization-1fa32c75c Aalborg University http://cordis.rkbexplorer.com/id/ FRAUNHOFER GESELLSCHAFT ZUR FO http://cordis.rkbexplorer.com/id/organization-c4bab301e9e31a63cdebaed13af6c19

  23. 23. 30
  24. 24. 31
  25. 25. 32
  26. 26. Events • Interval lifetime • Changing networks • Virtual teams • Affiliation is transient • Aggregates • Central to scholarly communication
  27. 27. Summary: a broader view • Almetrics gives a broader view • Altmetrics is must be situated in context • We should begin looking at the portfolio level – Multiple aggregations – What cannot be measured
  28. 28. Challenge: Architecture
  29. 29. Thanks Collaborators: Peter van den Besselaar, Julie Birkholz, Frank van Harmelen, Shenghui Wang, Rinke Hoekstra, Thomas Gurney, Mike Taylor, Anita de Waard, Jason Priem, Dario Taraborelli, Cameron Neylon, Ian Mulvany
