Supporting the Changing Research Practices of Chemists | Ithaka S+R - 0 views

  •  
    "Published February 25, 2013
    Matthew P. Long & Roger C. Schonfeld




    In this report, we present the results of Ithaka S+R's study of the scholarly practices of academic chemists. This study, funded by Jisc, presents information meant to empower research support providers in their work with chemists. The report covers themes such as data management, research collaboration, library use, discovery, publication practices, and research funding.
     
    The report describes the findings of our investigation into academic chemists' research habits and research support needs. The digital availability of scholarly literature has transformed chemists' research by creating an environment where they can easily search for journal articles and chemical information. However, they often feel overwhelmed by the amount of new research available, and they need better tools to remain aware of current research. Furthermore, despite their heavy use of technology for research, many academic chemists have been slow to adopt new models of sharing data and research results such as online repositories and open access publishing. Our interviews highlighted the importance of the research group as a unit of academic life, and revealed some of the challenges inherent in working in groups that span institutions and national boundaries."

    "TAGS Viewer allows users to browse, explore, and search a Twitter archive. As a backend, it requires Martin Hawksey's Twitter Archive Google Spreadsheet (TAGS). TAGS provides a free, non-technical method of archiving tweets for a given hashtag, which can be particularly useful for capturing a conference's backchannel.




    This application is contained in a single HTML file and has no server dependencies, which makes it easy to host anywhere: just upload a single file (this one!) and you're done. Or, if you don't need to share it with anyone, just double-click the file on your hard drive to open it in your Web browser. Configuration is as simple as supplying a Google Spreadsheet URL"

    Don't just claim massive enrolments, justify the completions. A case study in very poor retention in a Coursera course. The comments suggest that Open is key and that there is no evidence that Massive adds any qualitative value in MOOCS.
