The goal of the workshop is to further the understanding of innovative dissemination practices in open science and their relationship with altmetrics. In the first part of the workshop, OpenUP project researchers will give an overview of an innovative dissemination framework. The framework describes good practices and gives recommendations on how to create a successful research dissemination strategy beyond traditional academic dissemination. A special focus will lie on how to reach target audiences beyond the research community (e.g. business or the general public). Participants will be able to test the framework and a toolbox based on their dissemination needs and to give feedback in a discussion that involves the perspective of all stakeholders of dissemination and assessment (researchers and research organizations, funders, policy makers, journalists, practitioners & businesses etc.). In the second part, we will present a taxonomy linking channels of dissemination and altmetrics indicators. In between, we will present best practice examples of innovative dissemination.
DAY 2 - PARALLEL SESSION 3
What’s likely to be relevant in
the near future?
• Narrative perspective on altmetrics (How can
we use altmetrics to signify worth? Can we?)
• Reflexive perspective (How do altmetrics feed
back into science?)
• The medium is the worth? (How does the worth
of the medium interact with the value system in
• Content-based perspective (What do we count?
Who engages? With what? How? Why?)
• Understanding gaming effects (Offerbots,
(Re-)tweet farms, “social media suppliers”)
