Data reuse and the open data citation advantage - 0 views

  •  
    "Conclusion. After accounting for other factors affecting citation rate, we find a robust citation benefit from open data, although a smaller one than previously reported. We conclude there is a direct effect of third-party data reuse that persists for years beyond the time when researchers have published most of the papers reusing their own data. Other factors that may also contribute to the citation benefit are considered. We further conclude that, at least for gene expression microarray data, a substantial fraction of archived datasets are reused, and that the intensity of dataset reuse has been steadily increasing since 2003."

Altmetrics: New Indicators for Scientific Communication in Web 2.0 - 0 views

  •  
    "a
    study
    is undertaken
    of a selection of papers from the fie
    ld of
    c
    ommunication, comparing
    the number of cit
    ations received with
    their 2.0 i
    ndicators.
    The results s
    how that
    the most
    cited articles
    within
    recent years also have significantly hi
    gher altmetric indicators. Next
    follows a
    review of the principal empirical studies undertaken,
    centering on the correlations between bibliometric and
    al
    ternative indicators.
    To conclude, the main limitations
    of altmetrics
    are highlighted
    ,
    alongside a reflective
    consideration of the role altmetrics may play in
    capturing the impact
    of research
    in Web
    2.0 platforms"

Digital resilience in higher education - 0 views

  •  
    Abstrat: "Higher education institutions face a number of opportunities and challenges as the result of the digital revolution. The institutions perform a number of scholarship functions which can be affected by new technologies, and the desire is to retain these functions where appropriate, whilst the form they take may change. Much of the reaction to technological change comes from those with a vested interest in either wholesale change or maintaining the status quo. Taking the resilience metaphor from ecology, the authors propose a framework for analysing an institution's ability to adapt to digital challenges. This framework is examined at two institutions (the UK Open University and Canada's Athabasca University) using two current digital challenges, namely Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) and Open Access publishing."
