Disseminating your research. Scientific profiles and tools

  1. 1. Disseminating your research Scientific profiles and tools Nicolás Robinson-García @nrobinsongarcia
  2. 2. THEORY o Databases and scientific visibility o Open Access and online visibility o Digital identity and reputation DEMOS o How-to guide: tools for disseminating scientific papers (repositories, Google Scholar & reference managers) Agenda
  3. 3. Databases and scientific visibility o Scientific names o Scientific profiles – ORCID & ResearcherID o Web of Science and Scopus – Indicators o Google Scholar Citations Profiles
  4. 4. Sign your papers consistently This means avoiding name variants and making it easy for others to find you Especially relevant if you have more than one surname Scientific names
  5. 5. Recommendations o Always sign in the same format o Use your full given name, no need for initials! o Use hyphens if you have two surnames o If you can choose between different scientific names, use the most uncommon one o Correct any error you may find in a database Scientific name
  6. 6. Scientific profiles Identifying researchers uniquely is a big issue for researchers, funding agencies, publishers and universities
  7. 7. Scientific profiles • Ficha directorio • Perfil en Google Scholar • Perfil/Código ORCID • Perfil Digibug (OA) • Perfil Dialnet • ResearchGate • Academia.edu • Mendeley • Publons
  8. 8. Scientific profiles National R&D Plans and many scientific journals now ask for ORCID
  9. 9. How much does it cost others to find your work in Web of Science? Scientific visibility
  10. 10. Sometimes it is not our fault! Scientific visibility
  11. 11. Scopus uses an algorithm to identify and group publications of a single author Scientific visibility
  12. 12. But never trust entirely these algorithms, they can make serious mistakes! Scientific visibility
  13. 13. ORCID and Researcher ID also not always work! Scientific visibility
  14. 14. How much does it cost others to find your work in Google Scholar? Scientific visibility
  15. 15. Even if we hate them we should learn about bibliometric indicators to know their meaning and limitations as we will be asked to provide them at some point. Bibliometric indicators
  16. 16. H-Index An author has an h index when h of their papers has at least h citations
  17. 17. Journal Impact Factor The Journal Impact Factor is not a good proxy of the expected impact of papers published in such journal Total number of citations received in year X by papers published in a journal in years X-1 and X-2 Total number of paper published in a journal in years X-1 and X-2
  18. 18. Web of Science Citations and usage
  19. 19. Citations reports Web of Science

  27. 27. A few publishers control an increasingly higher share of ‘elite’ journals The problem THERE IS SOMETHING WRONG WITH THE PUBLISHING SYSTEM… Which they sell to academic institutions through a ‘big deal’ strategy
  28. 28. o Publishers impose their own collections o Abusive increases on pricing, up to 20% o Libraries acquire journals that are never used The problem … ALL OF THIS LEADS TO THE BEGINNING OF THE OPEN ACCESS
  29. 29. Government funds research Researchers publish their results in peer reviewed scientific journals Publishers edit these papers and sell them back to them through libraries Researchers access their papers through suscription The paradox
  30. 30. 1991 - Paul Ginsparg launches ARXIV The alternative 2002 - Budapest Open Access Initiative 2002 - Doris Lessig develops the Creative Commons licenses
  31. 31. Government funds research Researchers publish their results in peer reviewed scientific journals Publishers edit these papers and sell them back to them through libraries THIS ARE OFFERED IN OPEN ACCESS GRATIS Researchers access their papers through suscription Researchers publish their papers in journals or repositories The alternative
  32. 32. The revolution
  33. 33. The key to all these issues is the right of authors to achieve easily- accessible distribution of their work. If you would like to declare publicly that you will not support any Elsevier journal unless they radically change how they operate… THE COST OF KNOWLEDGE 2013 The revolution
  34. 34. We need to download scientific journals and upload them to file sharing networks. We need to fight for Guerilla Open Acces Swartz † 1986-2013 Robin Hoods of Science
  35. 35. Robin Hoods of Science Alexandra Elbakyan

  38. 38. The Roads to OA The author is responsible of ensuring open and free universal to its work WEBSITE REPOSITORY
  39. 39. A repository, deposit or archive is a centralized place where digital information is stored and preserved, normally databases or digital files • Institutional • Thematic • Articles • Data The Roads to OA
  40. 40. The Roads to OA Benefits of repositories o They ensure universal and permanent access o They use metadata to describe content and make it easier for research engines to find it o They use permanent URLs that ensure sustainability of hyperlinks.
