what it means for PKP to offer Article Level Metrics


Published on

O Public Knowledge Project (PKP) está lançando uma aplicação da métrica em nível de artigo da PloS (PLOS’ Article Level Metrics, ALM) focado em periódicos do mundo em desenvolvimento. O serviço tem o potencial de alcançar milhares de periódicos que utilizam o Open Journal System que, caso bem sucedido, pode incentivar editores de periódicos a orientar suas revistas a um público mais amplo. A apresentação apresenta o novo serviço ALM da PKP e os desafios encontrados, bem como um primeiro olhar para as métricas de todos os artigos publicados no SciELO Brasil em 2012. A apresentação fornece o primeiro e inédito olhar nas métricas em nível de artigo de um país Latino Americano e convida editores de periódicos e publishers a participar usando o Open Journal Systems, inscrevendo-se para ter acesso ao serviço.

The Public Knowledge Project (PKP) is beginning to roll out an implementation of PLOS’ Article Level Metrics application focused on journals in the developing world. The service has the potential to reach thousands of journals using Open Journal Systems and, if successful, can encourage journal editors to steer their journals towards a broader public. The presentation introduces PKP’s new ALM service and the challenges encountered, as well as a first look at the metrics of all articles published in SciELO Brazil in 2012. The presentation provides the first-ever glance at article level metrics of a Latin American country and invites journal publishers and editors using Open Journal Systems to participate by signing up for the service.

  1. 1. what it means for PKP to offer Article Level Metrics Juan Pablo Alperin (@juancommander)
  2. 2. For many years there could only be 1 metric @juancommander
  3. 3. one slight problem @juancommander
  4. 4. world according to WoS @juancommander
  5. 5. if you’re from the South, and your public is in the South, you are ... @juancommander
  6. 6. three regional initiatives to the rescue @juancommander
  7. 7. is the goal to just make a better IF? @juancommander
  8. 8. an alternative source for citations @juancommander

Bowyer, Ed.)PloS one, 3(11), e3804. doi:10.1371/journal.pone. 0003804 and some good studies came out of it @juancommander
  10. 10. and they mostly assert the bias against developing countries @juancommander
  11. 11. and now... @juancommander
  12. 12. there are alternatives! @juancommander
  13. 13. @juancommander
  14. 14. what do they mean for the SOUTH @juancommander
  15. 15. and what are our motivations @juancommander
  16. 16. and what is my motivation @juancommander
  17. 17. what should be our motivation for caring about altmetrics/ALM @juancommander
  18. 18. • new ways gaining visibility • new ways demonstrating visibility • good articles can stand out from journal • researchers can stand out for good work @juancommander
  19. 19. • counting some forms of public impact • being rewarded for other kinds of impact • incentive to gear research to public interests • move away from dependencies on measures biased against the South @juancommander (local?)
  20. 20. ¡¡CAUTION!! @juancommander
  21. 21. facebook penetration @juancommander
  22. 22. All Place coordinates in the Twitter Decahose 23 October 2012 to 30 November 2012 Twitter is usage is very skewed @juancommander are you surprised?
  23. 23. lets look at SciELO data from articles published in in 2012 collected metrics using PLOS ALM App data can be found at @juancommander
  24. 24. crossref 1522 (8.5%) mendeley 989 (5.5%) pmc 439 (2%) citeulike 16 (0%) looking at coverage @juancommander

  28. 28. launched an ALM using giving priority to the developing world @juancommander
  29. 29. launched an ALM using giving priority to the small publishers @juancommander
  30. 30. our plan @juancommander
  31. 31. make these metrics prominent on article pages the tried and true “shove it in people’s faces” approach @juancommander
  32. 32. hopefully: • change • open minds to alternative measures of impact • attract • give @juancommander culture around communicating research readers to a different group of journals an incentive to do research of public interest
  33. 33. We are actively looking for journals especially from Latin America sign-up your OJS journal here! and tell your friends! @juancommander
  34. 34. thank you @juancommander
