  2. 2. Using Altmetrics for Tracking Societal Impact Michael Ladisch, UCD Library May 2015
  3. 3. Alt-metrics Michael Ladisch, UCD Library May 2015 "Altmetrics are measures of scholarly impact mined from activity in online tools and environments.” Jason Priem, author of “Altmetrics: a manifesto” Benefits: • A more nuanced understanding of impact, showing us which scholarly products are read, discussed, saved and recommended as well as cited. • Often more timely data, showing evidence of impact in days instead of years. • A window on the impact of web-native scholarly products like datasets, software, blog posts, videos and more. • Indications of impacts on diverse audiences including scholars but also practitioners, clinicians, educators and the general public.

  8. 8. In general, altmetrics numbers… X Don’t represent the quality of research. Don’t indicate the quality of individual researchers. Don’t tell the whole story – always look for qualitative data as well X X Michael Ladisch, UCD Library May 2015 Source: altmetric.com
  9. 9. Caveats • Lack of standards • Open to manipulation and gaming • Use of online tools my differ by individual researcher, discipline, over time • Popularity (attention) does not always equal quality of research • Was the spike in hits a one-time, short-attention event? • Data sources come and go (think MySpace, Connotea) • Services started as free, open-source, open-access tools, often switched to charging fees Michael Ladisch, UCD Library May 2015

  28. 28. Why should I use social media for my research? • Global connectedness • Engage directly with your audiences • Boosts your exposure • You receive real feedback • Creating and sharing content • Establish credibility • Everybody’s doing it • Some of the services are harvested by altemetrics tools!

  29. 29. Social Networks for Researchers Some tips: • Maintain your profiles • Be consistent • Use your full name • Cross-link your different profiles • Don’t be a “Troll” • Be always polite • Add copyright statement for your work and respect other’s • Don’t overshare In Internet slang, troll (/ˈtroʊl/, /ˈtrɒl/) is a person who sows discord on the Internet by starting arguments or upsetting people,[1] by posting inflammatory,[2] extraneous, or off- topic messages in an online community (such as a forum, chat room, or blog), either accidentally[3][4] or with the deliberate intent of provoking readers into an emotional response[5]or of otherwise disrupting normal on-topic discussion.
