The new dilemma of online peer review: too many places to post? | The Praxis of Research | Scoop.it
Antonio Figueiredo's insight:

Where to get comments on your paper, and in what format for maximum impact? Will a few hubs like ResearchGate or Pubpeer.com dominate post-publication peer review? Or will online comments look more like a scattered hodgepodge of reviews, comments and discussions across websites unlinked to original publications? And if so, can search functions tie the thicket together?

IEEE Bibliometric Statement

Bibliometric Statement Summary
Antonio Figueiredo's insight:

The full IEEE statement on the appropriate use of bibliometric indicators, as adopted by the IEEE Board of Directors (2013): * Use multiple complementary bibliometric indicators to offer an appropriate, comprehensive, and balanced view of each journal in the space of scholarly publications * Any journal-based metric is not designed to capture qualities of individual papers, and must therefore not be used as a proxy for single-article quality or to evaluate individual scientists * While bibliometrics may be employed as a source of additional information for quality assessment within a specific area of research, the primary manner for assessment of either the scientific quality of a research project or of an individual scientist should be peer review.

Uma zine que dá voz a opiniões que muitos partilhamos, embora nem todos se possam exprimir livremente. Chamo a atenção para o  nº especial sobre avaliação da investigação (revisão por pares "tradicional" vs outras métricas que a web social tem feito emergir), com artigos de vários investigadores de instituições de renome. Achei particularmente interessante também ter conhecimento de que começa a haver movimentos a favor da qualidade do que se publica em detrimento da quantidade. Será que esta tendência do "fastscience" tem os dias contados? Eu aplaudo!!!
