[Mendeley] Worldwide Research Collaboration Mapped Out

[Mendeley] Worldwide Research Collaboration Mapped Out | Science 2.0 news | Scoop.it

Academia has a reputation for being a bit of a closed world, a walled garden of knowledge where secrets are jealously guarded. But the truth is that collaboration is at the very heart of research and scientific discovery, and that for science to advance, researchers need to get together, compare notes, disagree, and have their ideas challenged and built upon by others. Often this happens naturally – like in the cafeteria where PhD students will chat about their projects – but in such a hyper-specialized environment, chances are that people who share your particular research interests cannot be found in the same institution or even the same country. What then? (...) - by Alice BonasioMendeley Blog, 15 April 2013

Altmetrics are the central way of measuring communication in the digital age but what do they miss?

Altmetrics are the central way of measuring communication in the digital age but what do they miss? | Science 2.0 news | Scoop.it
Inspired by the push towards altmetrics, Nick Scott sees great potential to better communicate indicators of academic success. But this does constitute impact? Here, he puts forward questions on media mentions, website page hits and the ‘dark stuff’. LSE blog "Impact of Social Science", by Nick Scott, Dec 17, 2012
Julien Hering, PhD's insight:

"The LSE Future of Impacts conference in London saw a lively debate on numerous issues. However it was the discussion on altmetrics that interested me. Altmetrics is a movement of sorts (with its own manifesto, it must be, right?). It aims to complement/replace [there seems to be quite lively discussion on which] traditional bibliographic rankings based on citation analysis of academic journals with a wider set of metrics. These include tweets on TwitterFacebook shares, saves on sharing tools like Delicious and in reference managers/research management tools like Mendeley. (...)"

A match made in cyberspace: how networks nurture science

A match made in cyberspace: how networks nurture science | Science 2.0 news | Scoop.it
With the growth of online science networks, geography and economics no longer dictate how research is undertaken or published, finds Smriti Mallapaty.


Just as matchmaking sites connect romance-seekers based on their relationship compatibility, new academic social networks are connecting scientists based on their professional research interests.


These sites obviously lack the general appeal of Facebook, which topped one billion users last month.


But in the last five years ResearchGate, Mendeley and Academia.edu have each generated a user base of almost two million users. Mendeley has seen an increase of 1.5 million in just 12 months. (...) - by Smriti MallapatySciDev.Net, 7 novembre 2012

Social media tips for scientists

Social media tips for scientists | Science 2.0 news | Scoop.it
For many scientists, the thought of spending time on social media sites is distinctly unappealing. To some it’s just a question of time: why add to that to-do list which is already long enough? For others it’s more to do with social media itself, finding the idea of sharing thoughts and ideas with the whole world pointless or self-indulgent.


If that sounds like you, it might be time to reconsider your options – social media includes much more than the usual suspects like Facebook and Twitter, and there are even sites dedicated to academics. Indeed, a vast number of scientists are using social media for tremendous gains – whether that be forming new contacts and collaborations, sharing ideas, communicating science, inspiring others or just entertaining them. Why not join them? (...) - by Catherine de Lange, Naturejobs, 28 Sep 2012

Leading universities adopt Mendeley data to accelerate research analytics by 3 years

Leading universities adopt Mendeley data to accelerate research analytics by 3 years | Science 2.0 news | Scoop.it

This week, leading academic institutions in North America, Europe, and Asia signed up to Mendeley’s new data dashboard, the Mendeley Institutional Edition. The dashboard analyses their research activity and impact on the global research community in real time – down from the 3-5 year time lag of the “Impact Factor”, the current gold standard for such evaluations. This allows academic institutions to react faster to their faculty’s research needs and provide them with quicker, more personalised support during the research process – thus accelerating the pace of scientific discovery for all of us.

Interview with Dr. Victor Henning, Mendeley

Interview with Dr. Victor Henning, Mendeley | Science 2.0 news | Scoop.it

This time (no, I haven’t gone interview-only. One more after this one and we’re back to regular posting) I’m interviewing Dr. Victor Henning. Dr Henning has a PhD in Psychology from the Bauhaus-University of Weimar, Germany, and is co-founder and CEO of Mendeley, a program which allows managing and sharing of research articles. Founded in late 2007, Mendeley has now reached 2 million users (and published an interesting global research report , with graphs showing activity by discipline, average number of articles collected per researchers, etc.) (...) - Blog "Information Culture, Scientific" on American Blog Network, by Hadas Shema, November 23, 2012

Mendeley platform reveals global science reading trends

Mendeley platform reveals global science reading trends | Science 2.0 news | Scoop.it
A report finds "compelling evidence" that low R&D spend correlates with less access to academic papers, and time spent studying them.


A low spend on research and development (R&D) by a country may be limiting researchers' access to academic papers, and could be undermining their productivity and achievements, a report has found.


Limited access to scholarly content, which is a particular problem in developing nations, may have an indirect but negative impact on the number of papers published and Nobel prizes won, according to the 'Global Research Report',published by research collaboration platform Mendeley yesterday (1 November).


Such links between R&D spending, journal access and achievement highlight the potential benefits of open source academic publishing, particularly in low-income countries, the report says. (...) - by Jan Piotrowski, SciDev.net, 2 novembre 2012

Now that research is developing an online presence, thoughts are turning to how to maximise this. Brian Kelly investigates linking strategies; from Google Scholar Citations, Academia.edu and Mendeley to a researcher’s online publications, as a way of increasing researcher visibility among their digitally-literate peers. - by Brian Kelly, blog Impact of Social Sciences, August 23 2012
