Open Science Indicators as Metadata Fields?

Chris Fradkin, Rogério Mugnaini
2021 Frontiers in Research Metrics and Analytics  
Possibilities for a pilot study are explored, with an acknowledgement of the complexity of this undertaking.  ...  The authors describe the mission of the Center for Open Science, and its TOP Factor database, as well as the performance of open science badges.  ...  CLOSING OS research stands apart from other research in that it inadvertently promotes OS values. In that sense, every study examining OS standards keeps the buzzword of open science in the air.  ...

Introduction: Future pathways for science policy and research assessment: metrics vs peer review, quality vs impact

Claire Donovan
2007 Science and Public Policy  
Most thanks belong to the authors for their willingness to take aim at the constantly moving target of science policy and for entering into the spirit of engaging not only with colleagues in scientometrics  ...  and science governance but also with the broader academic community, research managers and evaluators and policy-makers.  ...  scientometrics (the science of research evaluation) and divorced from the practical experience of other nations (policy learning).  ...

Towards a second generation of 'social media metrics': Characterizing Twitter communities of attention around science

Adrián A. Díaz-Faes, Timothy D. Bowman, Rodrigo Costas, Lutz Bornmann
2019 PLoS ONE  
'Social media metrics' are bursting into science studies as emerging new measures of impact related to scholarly activities.  ...  To do so, we draw on the overall activity of social media users on Twitter interacting with research objects collected from the Altmetic.com database.  ...  Altmetric.com does not, however, share all of the user information of the tweeters that is available through the Twitter API.  ...

Metrics and Rankings: Myths and Fallacies [chapter]

Yannis Manolopoulos, Dimitrios Katsaros
2017 Communications in Computer and Information Science  
It is argued that these metrics and rankings should be treated with caution, in a light relative way and not in an absolute manner.  ...  Further we categorize metrics according to their entity scope: metrics for journals, conferences and authors. Several rankings have appeared based on such metrics.  ...  Other less established outlets include: (i) Journal of Data and Information Science -formerly, Chinese Journal of Library and Information Science, (ii) Frontiers in Research Metrics and Analytics by Frontiers  ...

Using scientometric indicators for reporting research portfolio: Field patterns of metric-wiseness [article]

Emanuel Kulczycki
2017 Figshare  
What are differences between the female and male scholars in using scientometric indicators? and – finally – Is the metric-wiseness related with the publication patterns (publication types)?  ...  In this presentation, I would like to share the results of my research on metric-wiseness.  ...  However, being or not being metric-wise does not depend on the quality of that researcher in his or her field.  ...

Information metrics (iMetrics): a research specialty with a socio-cognitive identity?

Staša Milojević, Loet Leydesdorff
2012 Scientometrics  
"Bibliometrics", "scientometrics", "informetrics", and "webometrics" can all be considered as manifestations of a single research area with similar objectives and methods, which we call "information metrics  ...  This study explores the cognitive and social distinctness of iMetrics with respect to the general information science (IS), focusing on a core of researchers, shared vocabulary and literature/knowledge  ...  For example, in her review of "informetrics" (what we call iMetrics) literature, Bar-Ilan (2008) found that Scientometrics and JASIST have the largest number of informetrics articles, with Research Policy  ...

Alternative metrics in scientometrics: A meta-analysis of research into three altmetrics [article]

Lutz Bornmann
2015 arXiv   pre-print
Alternative metrics are currently one of the most popular research topics in scientometric research.  ...  For each altmetric, a meta-analysis is calculated for its correlation with traditional citation counts.  ...  It does seem to be a different construct than measured by citations, but it is not clear what exactly this other construct is (if any, see above).  ...
