  1. 1. “Let’s Work Together” UCD Research, UCD Library and Altmetrics Michael Ladisch & Joseph Greene UCD Library michael.ladisch@ucd.ie joseph.greene@ucd.ie
  2. 2. UCD Library and UCD Research Collaborations • Research Repository UCD – Research Management System • Sharing bibliometrics tools – InCites & SciVal • Quality Review support for Schools/Institutes • Digital Technologies workshops • Altmetrics M. Ladisch & J. Greene, UCD Library June 2015
  3. 3. Altmetrics Altmetrics? M. Ladisch & J. Greene, UCD Library June 2015 • New way of measuring different, non-traditional forms of impact • Helps researchers to get credit for a broad range of impact activities • Complementary to traditional citation-based analysis Benefits: • More timely • Societal impact • Capturing non-traditional outputs Caveats: • No standards (yet) • Limited use of social media in research (still) • Open to gaming

  6. 6. Research Repository UCD and Altmetrics • Queensland U. of Tech.: ‘Impact and Interest’ feature (OR2014) • Uses free APIs to include Altmetric data (badges, or ‘donuts’) • Only top three mentions available when using free API or without institutional subscription • Low risk implementation: easy and free to add M. Ladisch & J. Greene, UCD Library June 2015
  7. 7. RRU and Altmetrics • Queensland U. of Tech.: ‘Impact and Interest’ feature (OR2014) • Potential to draw attention to RRU, increase uploads • Built locally to include downloads, Scopus citations and Altmetric.com’s (free) API • Only top three mentions when using free API • UCD Research saw potential at institutional level • Mentions in gov’t policy papers = direct evidence of societal impact • Purchased one year subscription
  8. 8. RRU and Altmetrics • Built locally in Nov. 2014 to include downloads, Scopus citations and Altmetric.com’s (free) API • Potential to draw attention to the repository, increase uploads • Only ‘trick’ is embedding the DOI dynamically (other identifiers can be used) http://api.altmetric.com/embeds.html M. Ladisch & J. Greene, UCD Library June 2015
  9. 9. RRU and Altmetrics • Queensland U. of Tech.: ‘Impact and Interest’ feature (OR2014) • Potential to draw attention to RRU, increase uploads • Built locally to include downloads, Scopus citations and Altmetric.com’s (free) API • Only top three mentions when using free API • UCD Research saw potential at institutional level • Mentions in gov’t policy papers = direct evidence of societal impact • Purchased one year subscription
  10. 10. RRU and Altmetrics • Demonstrated to UCD Office of Research in December 2014 • UCD Research saw potential at institutional level • Mentions in gov’t policy papers = direct evidence of societal impact • Purchased one year subscription in early 2015
  11. 11. Altmetric for Institutions Implementation • UCD Research took up one year subscription • UCD Research provided DOIs for tracking M. Ladisch & J. Greene, UCD Library June 2015
  12. 12. Altmetric for Institutions M. Ladisch & J. Greene, UCD Library June 2015
  13. 13. Altmetric for Institutions Pilot phase • UCD Library provides “training” for individual researchers, research administrators • Tab on Bibliometrics LibGuide • Informal working group (UCD Research/UCD Library) on use of altmetrics • UCD Research working group Communication Supports for Enhanced Dissemination M. Ladisch & J. Greene, UCD Library June 2015 Problems? • Not really …. • To clarify who does what
