A Smarter Way to Research: Using Emerging Technologies such as Mendeley, Google Scholar Profile, and Publish or Perish to Improve our Scholarship

Web 2.0 technologies have grown increasingly popular and useful for many aspects of personal and professional life. Following this trend, new Internet technologies are emerging that provide many benefits to academic researchers, including assistance in finding research articles around particular topics; identifying colleagues for potential collaboration; disseminating and promoting one's own research; and developing a clearer understanding of which studies, journals, and scholars have had the most impact in a particular field. In this workshop, presented at AECT 2012 in Louisville, KY, I introduced three Internet technologies that can assist scholars and readers of scholarship: Mendeley, Google Scholar Profile, and, to a lesser degree, Publish or Perish.
Mendeley. Mendeley, a free open-source tool, seeks to meet basic citation management needs in a similar way as Endnote, Refworks, and Zotero, while at the same time building a robust scholarly social network using a model based on Last.fm (Henning & Reichelt, 2008; Hoyt, Reichelt & Henning, 2009). Mendeley consists of two main programs: a desktop citation and PDF manager and an online companion that can also manage citations while sharing user-defined pieces of information about one's research with others (Zaugg, West, Tateishi, & Randall, 2011). Mendeley focuses on researchers' libraries instead of on the researchers themselves so networks can be formed around strands of research and specific articles. This may help researchers begin conversations and collaboration with others interested in the same research.
Google Scholar Profile. Google Scholar has a new “my citations” feature that allows researchers to set up their own profile and identify which citations in the Google Scholar system are their own. This profile and list of citations combines to create an attractive online presence and portfolio. Perhaps most importantly, Google Scholar provides the citation counts for specific articles listed on the author’s profile, as well as overall impact statistics, allowing others to quickly see which of the author’s articles have been viewed as potentially most important. Finally, Google Scholar enables authors to list co-authors, creating a network of collaboration that can be useful in studying a specific research topic.

  • A Smarter Way to Research: Using Emerging Technologies such as Mendeley, Google Scholar Profile, and Publish or Perish to Improve our Scholarship

    1. 1. Technologies & Research Richard West • 2012
    2. 2. A little like this ...rickwest@byu.edu
    3. 3. Orientation This workshop will focus on: • Over-arching principles related to finding, sharing/disseminating, and evaluating scholarship • Comparison of citation management tools • Hands-on with Mendeley, Google Scholar, and Publish or Perishrickwest@byu.edu
    4. 4. Proposed Outline • Discussion: Scholarship Finding • Workshop: EBSCO Thesaurus, Tic Tocs • Discussion: Scholarship Sharing • Workshop: Mendeley • Discussion: Scholarship Evaluation • Workshop: Google Scholar/P or Prickwest@byu.edu
    5. 5. Scholarship Finding

    20. 20. Why Share? • PhD scooped comicrickwest@byu.edu
    21. 21. Why Share? • To increase your personal publicity and impact • To contribute to a collective creativity that you can then draw on yourself • Because we are scholars & teachers ... that’s what we do! • Because the public has funded our researchrickwest@byu.edu
    22. 22. Scholar’s Repository • You have the right, typically, to share the “pre-pubs” or your research • You have the right, typically, to share your data excerpts online in a blog/websiterickwest@byu.edu
    23. 23. Your Online Reputation Academics need to be intentional about how, when, and what shows up when someone uses a search engine. • If Google cannot find a faculty scholars work, then it is essentially irrelevant — even nonexistent. • Building a web presence is more than simply having a website and can make the difference in an academics visibility. http://www.educause.edu/ero/article/intentional-web-presence-10-seo- strategies-every-academic-needs-knowrickwest@byu.edu

    30. 30. Questions To Consider • Do you mostly work with your references online or offline? • Do you work on multiple computers or one? • Do you need to share references with collaborators? (what platforms? • Are your sources usually online or offline? (library stacks, databases, Google Scholar, websites)? • Do you use or need advanced features? • Do you use Word or something else (Open Office, Google Docs?) • What is your budget? • Will you need to retain your references after graduation?rickwest@byu.edu

    43. 43. Organize into Collections Tip: consider making collections around topics, and then also collections for specific research projectsrickwest@byu.edu
    44. 44. Step 2 Create your Online Account Tip: Fill out your profile to increase networking possibilities. Upload your articles to the “my publications” collection for an online vita.rickwest@byu.edu
    45. 45. Step 3 Install the Web Importer - http://www.mendeley.com/import/ Tip: works in all major browsers, including Chrome!rickwest@byu.edu
    46. 46. Step 4 Find Articles 1. Import when on the web 2. Export if needed to Refworks/Zotero (Refworks XML format), then import 3. Drag PDFs into the desktop program or 4. Download PDFs to a “watched” folder 5. Search among the 45 million+ citations contributed by Mendeley users.rickwest@byu.edu
    47. 47. Tip: tag your articles here to save time later.rickwest@byu.edu
    48. 48. Step 5 Organize your PDFs Tip: Don’t organize by titles, as they’re too long. Choose authors or journals or years.rickwest@byu.edu
    49. 49. Step 6: Start Annotating Tip: If you can’t highlight, OCR the document in Acrobat Pro and then open in Mendeley. Use tagging liberally to organize citations into piles that can become sections in your literature review.rickwest@byu.edu
    50. 50. Organizational Methods
    51. 51. Step 7 Insert into papers (Word, Google, OpenOffice, etc.) Copy a citation in Mendeley, paste into word processor, or install the Mendeley plugin for Word or Open Office. Tip: Use the plug-in if you like stopping your work flow to fix problems. I think copy and paste works better, pretty much for all citation managers.rickwest@byu.edu
    52. 52. Step 8: Create Groups Private = pdfs + notes Public = citations Tip: become contacts first, groupies secondrickwest@byu.edu

    67. 67. Challenges with Acceptance Rates • Difficult to find updated information • Does the journal count resubmissions as new submissions? • What level of quality articles does the journal receive? • International influx • Desk rejects can be quite high, and contribute to the AR • Quality of peer reviewers • Reviewers often disagreerickwest@byu.edu
