The seminar on research impact measurement, organised by the University Library on 20 January, has been a success. 22 (of 35) attendees filled in the evaluation form and were quite unanimous –positive- about the quality of the presentations.
- The presentation of Jos Franssen, information specialist of the University Library, in which he took the audience at hand by presenting the different aspects and developments of research impact measurement, was highly appreciated
- Stephan Buettgen from EBSCO showed a platform with which different research impact outcomes can be brought together in order to present more accurate ways of assessing research by analysing the five categories of metrics: Usage; Captures; Mentions; Social Media; Citations
- And last but not least Egon Willighagen stood up for the use of a unique researcher’s identifier, preferably ORCID-ID, for every researcher. His message: identification and presentation of researchers output will become easier by using such an ID
The presentations of the three speakers:
- Jos Franssen: ‘Impact measurement: options, trends and challenges’
- Stephan Buettgen: ‘Plum Analytics: allmetrics not altmetrics’
- Egon Willighagen: ORCID-ID: a persistent digital identifier to distinguish yourself’
