IScico Module 3 - Let's collaborate!

  1. 1. Let’s collaborate!ISciCo – Module 3 ISCICO Course, 14-18 Jan 2013, Universitat de Girona Miquel Duran, UdG @miquelduran License: Creative Commons CC-BY-SA
  2. 2. So far…• Let’s communicate!• Let’s share• And now… – Let’s collaborate • Within out team or group • With worlwide scholars• Because we are researchers
  3. 3. PPT worth taking a look• See in
  4. 4. Scientists communicate: an example• Marcel Swart, TEDxUdG: “I’m a chemist”
  5. 5. Team Collaboration• Workgroup, continued collaboration – Productivity tools – E-mail, twitter, facebook, etc. – Cloud-based • Zyncro • Teambox • • Google Drive (docs, etc.)• Scholarly level collaboration – Researchgate, mendeley,
  6. 6. To collaborate out there, first you must introduce yourself: CV• LinkedIn• VisualCv• Nice website templates – E.g. – Example (see marcel swart’s blog) – Science is key, but design also matters• Scientific social networks• Attend conferences, meetings, and socialize
  7. 7. And second… how do we know about colleagues?• Indeed: LinkedIn• Further: Commercial databases/tertiary sources – Web of Knowledge – Scopus – (how do we access those services? Paywall!)• Google’s approach: Google Scholar
  8. 8. Google Scholar• Lots of data! (of course)• Cites• Searchable (indeed!)• Alerts• Crossed references
  9. 9. But what’s your name?• Identifying yourself: names in papers• Solving disambiguation: – Researcher ID (Web of Knowledge) • – ORCID (Open Access) • – Scopus Author Identifier • detail/tools/authoridentifier
  10. 10. Pushing forward Open Science• SpotOn London 2012 –• UKWebFocus blog –
  11. 11. Alternative to 20st century publishing?• Open source software, open source beer… open publishing!• Open access (mandatory for EU in 2014)• Open data (… big data)• Just 3 examples from SpotOn Science HackDay – – – (open publishing)
  12. 12. Panton Principles: Principles for Open Data in Science.•• Science is based on building on, reusing and openly criticising the published body of scientific knowledge.• For science to effectively function, and for society to reap the full benefits from scientific endeavours, it is crucial that science data be made open.
  13. 13. Example of Open Science•• Open data• Open access• Open research• Open Science Foundation
  14. 14. Open Science example: Wikipathways•
  15. 15. Example collaborative team reserach: KeepAndShare
  16. 16. Creative Commons License• Creative Commons – Attributes – ND – NC – SA – BY• (see video inside)
  17. 17. Nonspecific Social Networks for scientists: Twitter and LinkedIn• You may follow lists in @udglive – like udg- gent and udg-nogent• You may belong to Unviersity of Girona company and group in LinkedIn• Indeed you may like UdG’s facebook pages
  18. 18. Academic social networks• Indeed on may use twitter, facebook, google+, etc.• But one might wish to focus on more knowledge-intensive relationships• Let’s focus on 3 academic social networks: – – Researchgate – Mendeley
  19. 19.• Wikipedia: is a platform for academics to share research papers• One defines areas of interest, and then searches for… – People – Questions – Documents – Journals
  20. 20.• Wikipedia: a mash-up of “Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn” that includes “profile pages, comments, groups, job listings, and ‘like’ and ‘follow’ buttons”*2+ for the purposes of crowdsourcing research.• Publications, topics, questions, authors, … everything can be followed!• Actual social network
  21. 21. Mendeley.Com• Another social network• Allows PDF storage• It is a reference manager• Annotation, collaboration, paper coworking• People• Groups• Etc-
  22. 22. Curating information• RSS sources• Google Reader• Feedly• Smartphone/tablet readers – Flipboard – Zite – Pulse – Etc• (show them in actual work)•, blogs, pinterest, twitter, etc.• Smartphone-related productivity tools
  23. 23. PhD Comics• Comic strip•
