  3. 3. Het rapport doet de aanbeveling “om een samenhangendonderzoeksprogramma op te zetten naar de dynamiek,eigenschappen en potentiële toepassing van nieuwewebgebaseerde meetinstrumenten. […]Dit programma zou in ieder geval de volgende toolsmoeten volgen: F1000, Microsoft Academic Research,Total-Impact, PlosONE altmetrics, en Google Scholar.Het programma zou bovendien de volgendeonderzoeksgebieden moeten ontwikkelen: de conceptenvan nieuwe webmetrieken en altmetrics, destandaardisatie van tools en data en het gebruik ennormalisatie van de nieuwe meetinstrumenten.” CC-BY: Maurice Vanderfeesten 2013

  20. 20. In order for the EgoSystem to function, and what allmetric services have in common, is that there is aneed for identifiers, both for authors and scientificresults.Author identifier services that are aware of thescientific results from the author.Result services that are aware of the authors.(repositories, journals, data archives, presentationservices, social media, etc.)Metric services that can integrate Author and Resultservices, to create a personal EgoSphere for everyauthor.

  21. 21. Why author identifier services?• Author ID services lower the barrier on engaging a new research service• Preventing from typing the same list of results and identifiers over and over again• Increases ease of use CC-BY: Maurice Vanderfeesten 2013
