OSFair2017 Worksop | Scientific knowledge dissemination and Altmetrics


Published on

Stephan Gauch & Clemens Blümel talk about scientific knowledge dissemination and Altmetrics & present OpenUP research work.

Workshop title: Innovative dissemination practices & Altmetrics

Workshop abstact:
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.

  • I’ve personally never heard of companies who can produce a paper for you until word got around among my college groupmates. My professor asked me to write a research paper based on a field I have no idea about. My research skills are also very poor. So, I thought I’d give it a try. I chose a writer who matched my writing style and fulfilled every requirement I proposed. I turned my paper in and I actually got a good grade. I highly recommend ⇒ ⇐

  8. 8. 8 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 science?) •  Content-based perspective (What do we count? Who engages? With what? How? Why?) •  Understanding gaming effects (Offerbots, (Re-)tweet farms, “social media suppliers”)
