Beyond the paper CV and developing a scientific profile through social media, altmetrics and micropublication

2,666 views

Published on

This is a presentation that I gave during a UK tour in Sept/Oct 2014 at a number of UK universities
Many of us nowadays invest significant amounts of time in sharing our activities and opinions with friends and family via social networking tools. However, despite the availability of many platforms for scientists to connect and share with their peers in the scientific community the majority do not make use of these tools, despite their promise and potential impact and influence on our future careers. We are being indexed and exposed on the internet via our publications, presentations and data. We also have many more ways to contribute to science, to annotate and curate data, to “publish” in new ways, and many of these activities are as part of a growing crowdsourcing network. This presentation will provide an overview of the various types of networking and collaborative sites available to scientists and ways to expose your scientific activities online. Many of these can ultimately contribute to the developing measures of you as a scientist as identified in the new world of alternative metrics. Participating offers a great opportunity to develop a scientific profile within the community and may ultimately be very beneficial, especially to scientists early in their career.

Beyond the paper CV and developing a scientific profile through social media, altmetrics and micropublication

  1. 1. Beyond the paper CV: developing a scientific profile through social media, Altmetrics and micropublication Antony Williams
  2. 2. Questions to Start… • Who in the room has an ORCID (and did you set it up yourself?)
  3. 3. Questions to Start… • Who in the room has an ORCID (and did you set it up yourself?) • Who has NOT heard of AltMetrics?
  4. 4. And one selfish one… • Who in the room has an ORCID (and did you set it up yourself?) • Who has NOT heard of AltMetrics? • Who hasn’t used ChemSpider yet???
  5. 5. How much work? • How much work is done generating and analyzing data? • How much effort to represent your science – presentations, publications? • How long does it take to write a publication? • How much work does it take to go through the peer review process? • Does anyone now argue against Open Access? • What about the future of Open Data?
  6. 6. …and do you market it??? • How much work do you put into your own profile (versus other aspects of you on Facebook ) • Even if you are not going to be a scientist your online profile is increasingly important.
  7. 7. The Power of Social Media
  8. 8. The Power of Social Media
  9. 9. The Power of Blogs
  10. 10. The Power of Blogs (from Sean Ekins, @collabchem)
  11. 11. Is exposure important??? • Does a highly viewed paper mean better science? CLEARLY NO! • If AltMetrics is one of the new measures clearly visibility and discoverability is important • Considering the investment made in the science is there a downside to investing in exposing it? • YES…it can be called “gaming” or “savvy”
  12. 12. Visibility Means Discoverability • Q: Does a Social Profile as a scientist matter? • You are visible, when you share your skills, experience and research activities by: • Establishing a public profile • Getting on the record • Collaborative Science • Demonstrating a skill set • Measured using “alternative metrics” • Contributing to the public peer review process • There are many ways to become “visible”
  13. 13. Your Profile as a Scientist • If you are an active scientist – i.e. already published, active researcher, generator of data, early, mid- or late career there is lots to do! • If you are a junior scientist the benefits of investing time now will provide a strong foundation for your future! • So what do I do??
  14. 14. Maybe you should be a brand? • If you are going forth into the social network adopt a “brand name” throughout the network • Search Google for your “brand name” • Choose a unique brand or be yourself • BRAND: Collabchem, ChemConnector • YOURSELF: egonwillighagen, joergwegner
  15. 15. Branding: I am ChemConnector
  16. 16. My Online Profile Shared on.. • Places I am viewable: • Online CVs • LinkedIn • Google Scholar Citations for citations • Microsoft Academic Scholar for papers • ImpactStory • Plum Analytics • Wikipedia and ScientistsDB • Search engines

  21. 21. Are you a-tweeting on Twitter? • 140 characters to connect and communicate • Use your “brand name” on Twitter – it has high frequency here… • Greatest value for me – bite-sized nuggets into information of interest and leading people into information I wish to share including my posts, my activities • Faster responses than email commonly!
  22. 22. You should be LinkedIn • LinkedIn for “professionals” • Expose work history, skills, your professional interests, your memberships – your profile WILL be watched! • Who you are linked to says a lot about who you are. Get Linked to people in your domain. • Professional relationships rather than just friendships. FaceBook-it for friends
