  • Published articles in prominent journals cite other articles in prominent journals = prestige and tenure.This mechanism of using citations in published journals to determine impact of research was built in the 1960’s.
  • As everyone knows, information has moved online.Where printed books and journals were once the only scholarly record, this too has become digital.The current impact measurements for research were defined in the 1960's, when the world was a different place.They are only based at looking at what papers cite other papers in the reference section of a document.
  • Categories of metrics
  • Compare the metrics showcasing the capturing of immediate impact versus a search on Google Scholar for something like “brain cancer.”
  • “Same” article on PLOS, PubMed, and Pitt’s institutional repository.Metrics need to be algorithmicallycombined from ALL places to capture all of its use.
  • http://demo.plu.mx/a/eKXLDK8_gEB-iSPG_HLlHVGtDVYDreSTzdY7VST1rmY/Plum’s Identity resolution system, can match different artifacts together by known identifiers (like DOI), aliases of URLs, and proprietary clustering analysis algorithms.This system scales across millions of artifacts, and gives a complete view to the metrics.
  • NicholasPyenson blogs about his research.In a recent (2012) Nature paper that was chosen to be one of Discover Magazine’s top science stories of the year.His work has gotten pickup in the popular press and he has blogged about key areas relating to his research.Traditionally, he will not get “credit” for this work.http://nmnh.typepad.com/pyenson_lab/nature-rorquals-organ.html
  • Other types of artifacts we track for this research include: BBC article about his work that was liked on Facebook over 700 times and tweeted nearly 500 times A popular blog post about his research An article in the New York TimesThese 2nd level metrics can also be used to help quantify not just the paper he authored, but the reach and engagement of others writing about his work.
  • At the time this snapshot of metrics was taken, his work was newly published. It hadn’t been picked up in Web of Science yet at all.However, the metrics surrounding his work give us a leading indicator that it may be impactful research.
  • This visualization of a researcher’s output, when weighted by impact, shows which artifacts have been getting the most engagement across their entire life’s work.This is very useful when trying to get an overall sense of what a particular researcher (or lab, or group) is most known for.
  • PlumX offers embeddable widgets for Publishers, Institutions and Researchers.We offer both Author level and Artifact level widgets.

    3. 3. Current State of Scholarly Measure 3
    4. 4. Well-known Problems with Citation Analysis • Self-citations • Citations added because of pressure by editors • Negative citations • Only about 30% of influences are cited* • “Informal” influence isn’t measured through citations • Secondary sources • Review articles “take” citations away from reviewed articles • Matthew effect – the rich get richer * MacRoberts and MacRoberts, 2010 4
    5. 5. 5 Citations are only a small fraction of how a paper is reused 5 0.3% 100% 22.3% Article-Level Metrics collected October 10, 2012 for 62,536 PLOS Papers

PlumX Platform: Built for Big Data • Built for Scale – goal tracking all the world’s researchers, all of their outputs, and metrics for each. • Technology that solves inherent problems around: • Author disambiguation • Identity Resolution • Calculating combined metrics • Harvesting metrics at scale • Experience architecting scalable platforms • E.g., Summon – provides sub-second response time to searching over 1B documents (including full text of both articles and books) 12
    13. 13. Different categories of impact • Usage • Downloads, views, book holdings, ILL, document delivery • Captures • Favorites, bookmarks, saves, readers, groups, watchers • Mentions • Blog post, news story, Wikipedia article, comments, review • Social Media • Tweets, Google +1s, likes, shares, ratings • Citations • Web of Science, Scopus, Google Scholar, Microsoft Academic Search, patents 13
