      Altmetric Mentions and the Communication of Medical Research

      Posted in Publishing, Reports and White Papers, Scholarly Metrics on March 2nd, 2015

      Digital Science has released Altmetric Mentions and the Communication of Medical Research.

      Here's an excerpt:

      Social and mainstream media mentions of research publications appear much more rapidly than conventional academic citations and are generated by a wider range of users. They therefore offer the potential for early and complementary indicators of research impact. Such indicators could also identify new kinds of economic and social impact.

      In this report we explore the relevance of such new indicators to research in medical and health sciences.

          "The Educational Value of Truly Interactive Science Publishing"

          Posted in Data Curation, Open Data, and Research Data Management, Publishing, Scholarly Journals on March 2nd, 2015

          Michael J. Ackerman has published "The Educational Value of Truly Interactive Science Publishing" in The Journal of Electronic Publishing.

          Here's an excerpt:

          Interactive Scientific Publishing (ISP) has been developed by the Optical Society of America with support from the National Library of Medicine at NIH. It allows authors to electronically publish papers which are linked to the referenced 2D and 3D original image datasets. These image datasets can then be viewed and analyzed interactively by the reader. ISP provides the software for authors to assemble and link their source data to their publication. But more important is that it provides readers with image viewing and analysis tools. The goal of ISP is to improve learning and understanding of the presented information. This paper describes ISP and its effect on learning and understanding. ISP was shown to have enough educational value that readers were willing to invest in the required set-up and learning phases. The social aspects of data sharing and the enlarged review process may be the hardest obstacles to overcome.
