1. Lets Work Together UCD Research, UCD Library and Altmetrics Michael Ladisch & Joseph Greene UCD Library michael.ladisch@ucd.ie joseph.greene@ucd.ie 2. UCD Library and UCD Research Collaborations Research Repository UCD Research Management System Sharing bibliometrics tools InCites & SciVal Quality Review support for Schools/Institutes Digital Technologies workshops Altmetrics M. Ladisch & J. Greene, UCD Library June 2015 3. Altmetrics Altmetrics? M. Ladisch & J. Greene, UCD Library June 2015 New way of measuring different, non-traditional forms of impact Helps researchers to get credit for a broad range of impact activities Complementary to traditional citation-based analysis Benefits: More timely Societal impact Capturing non-traditional outputs Caveats: No standards (yet) Limited use of social media in research (still) Open to gaming 4. Altmetrics M. Ladisch & J. Greene, UCD Library June 2015 5. Altmetrics M. Ladisch & J. Greene, UCD Library June 2015 Three major players http://www.altmetric.com/ http://www.plumanalytics.com/ https://impactstory.org/ 6. Research Repository UCD and Altmetrics Queensland U. of Tech.: Impact and Interest feature (OR2014) Uses free APIs to include Altmetric data (badges, or donuts) Only top three mentions available when using free API or without institutional subscription Low risk implementation: easy and free to add M. Ladisch & J. Greene, UCD Library June 2015 7. RRU and Altmetrics Queensland U. of Tech.: Impact and Interest feature (OR2014) Potential to draw attention to RRU, increase uploads Built locally to include downloads, Scopus citations and Altmetric.coms (free) API Only top three mentions when using free API UCD Research saw potential at institutional level Mentions in govt policy papers = direct evidence of societal impact Purchased one year subscription 8. RRU and Altmetrics Built locally in Nov. 2014 to include downloads, Scopus citations and Altmetric.coms (free) API Potential to draw attention to the repository, increase uploads Only trick is embedding the DOI dynamically (other identifiers can be used) http://api.altmetric.com/embeds.html M.

RRU and Altmetrics Demonstrated to UCD Office of Research in December 2014 UCD Research saw potential at institutional level Mentions in govt policy papers = direct evidence of societal impact Purchased one year subscription in early 2015 11. Altmetric for Institutions Implementation UCD Research took up one year subscription UCD Research provided DOIs for tracking M. Ladisch & J. Greene, UCD Library June 2015 12. Altmetric for Institutions M. Ladisch & J. Greene, UCD Library June 2015 13. Altmetric for Institutions Pilot phase UCD Library provides training for individual researchers, research administrators Tab on Bibliometrics LibGuide Informal working group (UCD Research/UCD Library) on use of altmetrics UCD Research working group Communication Supports for Enhanced Dissemination M. Ladisch & J. Greene, UCD Library June 2015 Problems? Not really . To clarify who does what 14. Thank you!
