Published on

A atual revolução na avaliação de pesquisa é devido a uma série de fatores que estão presentes há vários anos, mas que agora estão convergindo para oferecer um novo cenário onde a presença na web das iniciativas em Acesso Aberto, dos repositórios institucionais, dos portais de periódicos e dos pesquisadores individuais desempenha um papel muito importante.

The current revolution in research assessment is due to a series of factors that have been present for several years but that now are converging for offering a new scenario where the Open Access initiatives, the institutional repositories, the portals of journals and the researchers individual web presence are to play a very important role.

La revolución actual en la evaluación de la investigación se debe a una serie de factores que han estado presentes durante varios años, pero que ahora están convergiendo para ofrecer un nuevo escenario en el que las iniciativas de Acceso Abierto, los repositorios institucionales, los portales de revistas y la presencia individual de los investigadores en el Web, van a jugar un papel muy importante.

I-Metrics: biblio-, web-, alt- & usage- metrics

  1. 1. I-Metrics biblio-, web-, alt- & usagemetrics Isidro F. Aguillo
  2. 2. AGENDA  BORED – Journal-level Metrics (infamous Impact Factor) – Citation-only Analysis (unreliable h-Index) – Metadata focused repositories  COOL – Identifiers – Article Level Metrics (ALM) – Altmetrics (not only ALM)  BETA – Profiles • Composite indicators • Visualization • Rankings 2
  4. 4. A model for I-Metrics BIBLIOMETRICS WEBOMETRICS Number of times the bibliographic record (identifier) of a paper/book is cited in another similar formally published paper Number of times the URL of a document/author webpage is linked from another webpage Document-level metrics Title Source:Journal/Book/Patent Publication Year Citations Identifier: URL/DOI/Handle Subject/Tags Author-level metrics ALTMETRICS Number of times the elements are mentioned (shared) in websites, wikis, blogs, soci al bookmarks and networks (incl. Twitter) or search engines 4 Author(s) Institution (Affiliation) Publication Year Discipline/Tags Web profiles Web 2.0 profiles USAGEMETRICS Number of times the document is read/visited/downloaded from its publishing place (incl. websites)
  5. 5. A Plea for Personal Profiles  Sources – Commercial bibliographic databases (WoS, Scopus,…) – Public Web search engines, incl. academic ones (GS, MS AS, Mendeley) – Social Web platforms (, ResearchGate, LinkedIn, Wikipedia, YouTube, Twitter, …) – Personal (and group) webpages – Repositories  Metrics – Activity: Formal (peer-reviewed papers/chapters/monographs), Informal – Visibility: Inclusion in repositories, bibliographic databases/search engines – Impact: Citations, Links, Mentions (incl. likes, discussions & similar) – Usage: Visits, Visitors (incl. followers), Downloads  Integration (and visualization) – ImpactStory Plus Plus 5
  6. 6. Personal (Bibliometric) Profiles (I) 6

  12. 12. Webometrics for individuals, not yet? … 12
  13. 13. Altmetrics for individuals, not yet? … 13
  14. 14. (Super)Repositories for individuals, not yet? … 14
  15. 15. Usagemetrics for individuals, not yet? … 15
  16. 16. IMHO … Personal Institutional Webpage  From Profile to Portfolio – Institutionally hosted • Prestige, authority, long-term preservation – Caring about Identifiers – Not only Metrics • Beyond CV: Rhetorical introduction • Updated frequently: Twitter, Blog or similar • Outlinks rich  But also Metrics – APIs based: Objectivity, Reliability • Absolute and relative (rankings) figures – Network visualization: topics, colleagues, institutions – Public (interactive) dashboard • Current standard Google Analytics needs to emerge 16
