About this talk

Scientific researchers face an exciting, and possibly surprising array of new methods to manipulate and manage the impacts of their research. These tools include

  • Altmetrics – usage analysis of their research including citations, social media and full-text downloads;
  • Big Data – whereby the researcher utilizes big data sets to handle complex information;
  • Open Access – OA journals offer the opportunity for wider dissemination of researchers’ scientific findings; and
  • Text Mining – where tailored text “definitions” of research terms may derive more high quality information to enhance the use of the research by others.

With these tools, research will be translated more quickly into tangible results.
