RIN - http://www.rin.ac.uk/
 The Research Information Network in the UK is
  currently sponsored by the four Higher
  Education funding bodies, the three National
  Libraries, and the seven Research Councils
 Role: undertake evidence-based research into
  information and data issues that relate to
  professional academic researchers to develop
  policy, guidance and advocacy on that basis.

Research Question

To what extent are Web 2.0 tools are being
 adopted as a scholarly tool in different
 institutions and departments across the
 UK, in different subject fields and
 disciplines, and at different stages of the
 scholarly communications process?


                  Workshop on Scientific Writing and New Patterns of Scientific
                  Communication, e-SS’09, Cologne, 24 June 2009
Project Aim
 Understand changing practices of scholarly
  communication and publication by researchers
 Explore the role of new Web-based services in
  this change
 Results will be used to inform investment
  decisions in research support by UK research
  councils and HEIs
 To inform debate on the future of research and
  publication practices

Scholarly communication

 Often refers primarily to the process of
  publication of peer-reviewed research

 Broader view in the RIN Web 2.0 project:
  range of activities that scholars undertake as
   part of their everyday activities

RIN Web 2.0 Study (1)
Objectives
 Who is using what, where?
 What is shaping that use?
 The implications for Scholarly
  Communications

                Communication, e-SS’09, Cologne, 24 June 2009
RIN Web 2.0 Study (2)
Methods
 Quantitative and representative survey of
  UK scholarly community to discover basic
  use and awareness
 50 in-depth interviews on scholarly
  communications and Web 2.0
 5 case studies of promoters, developers
  and users of specific ‘Web 2.0’ services

Where we are now
 Survey stage
   6000 email request for participation in the survey went
    out (as of yesterday), 842 of which were not
    contactable (i.e. email bounced).
   Response rate: 500/(6000-842) = 9.7%
   Aim: 800 responses
 Start of interviews with users and non-users (of
  Web 2.0) informed by the survey this week
 Use case phase started with nature.com (Nature
  Publishing Group) and myExperiment

                       Communication, e-SS’09, Cologne, 24 June 2009
Survey
 Main objective: Assess the current contours of
  engagement with and use of Web 2.0 tools in
  different types of scholarly communication by UK
  academics: profiling use by age, position,
  discipline and gender
 Inform the interviews with non-/adopters
 Preliminary descriptive results are based on
  approximately 470 responses (as of last week)
 Number in line with our calculations to achieve a
  margin of error of no more than +/-5% around
  our results.

                    Communication, e-SS’09, Cologne, 24 June 2009
Survey Sampling: Motivation
 Need to survey a random sample of UK
  academics
  representative if possible
  self-selection needs to be avoided
 No list of researchers in the UK
 But can check a generated list by
  comparing answers against HESA
  statistics

Web Mining (1)
 Yahoo search for “mailto” and university
  domain name – 1000 results max (Yahoo
  API limitation, google same)
 For list of 132 domain names in ac.uk
  domain
 Gives us 92965 unique urls to look at
 Harvesting these takes a long time, so
  prioritise:.ac.uk domain names first (4911)

                  Communication, e-SS’09, Cologne, 24 June 2009
Web Mining (2)
 Pattern matching results in 6120 distinct
  emails
 Filtering out addresses such as “info@...”,
  “postgrad@...”, “admin@...”
 Now is a good opportunity to check for
  domain names not used in initial round…
  Verified using lookup service at whois.ja.net
  Initially: 132 domains, then 344, then 577
 Goto 1
  Now 187k URLs, 43861 unique email addresses

Quality Assurance (1)
 Initial aim was to create as long a list as
  possible, now need to start selecting
 Need to ensure, as far as possible, that we:
  Use only email addresses that are active
  Select people who are research active (as
   researchers or investigators)
  Email each person only once (despite multiple
   email addresses and aliases)
  Cover a range of institutions, disciplines, levels of
   seniority etc.

Quality Assurance (2)
 Processing harvested website content
  using lingpipe for name extraction gives
  candidate names
 Need given name or title, surname to send
  meaningful invitation email
  Can match some names to gender (Mr/Ms)
   where no academic title is available

Quality Assurance (3)
 Automated processing gets you only so
  far…
 Utilising peoples’ skills with crowdsourcing

  • 3. RIN - http://www.rin.ac.uk/  The Research Information Network in the UK is currently sponsored by the four Higher Education funding bodies, the three National Libraries, and the seven Research Councils  Role: undertake evidence-based research into information and data issues that relate to professional academic researchers to develop policy, guidance and advocacy on that basis. Workshop on Scientific Writing and New Patterns of Scientific Communication, e-SS’09, Cologne, 24 June 2009
  • 4. Research Question To what extent are Web 2.0 tools are being adopted as a scholarly tool in different institutions and departments across the UK, in different subject fields and disciplines, and at different stages of the scholarly communications process? Workshop on Scientific Writing and New Patterns of Scientific Communication, e-SS’09, Cologne, 24 June 2009
  • 5. Project Aim  Understand changing practices of scholarly communication and publication by researchers  Explore the role of new Web-based services in this change  Results will be used to inform investment decisions in research support by UK research councils and HEIs  To inform debate on the future of research and publication practices Workshop on Scientific Writing and New Patterns of Scientific Communication, e-SS’09, Cologne, 24 June 2009
  • 6. Scholarly communication  Often refers primarily to the process of publication of peer-reviewed research  Broader view in the RIN Web 2.0 project: range of activities that scholars undertake as part of their everyday activities Workshop on Scientific Writing and New Patterns of Scientific Communication, e-SS’09, Cologne, 24 June 2009
  • 7. RIN Web 2.0 Study (1) Objectives  Who is using what, where?  What is shaping that use?  The implications for Scholarly Communications Workshop on Scientific Writing and New Patterns of Scientific Communication, e-SS’09, Cologne, 24 June 2009
  • 8. RIN Web 2.0 Study (2) Methods  Quantitative and representative survey of UK scholarly community to discover basic use and awareness  50 in-depth interviews on scholarly communications and Web 2.0  5 case studies of promoters, developers and users of specific ‘Web 2.0’ services Workshop on Scientific Writing and New Patterns of Scientific Communication, e-SS’09, Cologne, 24 June 2009
  • 9. Where we are now  Survey stage  6000 email request for participation in the survey went out (as of yesterday), 842 of which were not contactable (i.e. email bounced).  Response rate: 500/(6000-842) = 9.7%  Aim: 800 responses  Start of interviews with users and non-users (of Web 2.0) informed by the survey this week  Use case phase started with nature.com (Nature Publishing Group) and myExperiment Workshop on Scientific Writing and New Patterns of Scientific Communication, e-SS’09, Cologne, 24 June 2009
