motivation for study
Motivation forstudy
  • Initiatives that demand for new approaches in research evaluation (e.g., DORA)
  • Leibniz Association’s evaluation guidelines ask for appropriate public outreach and engagement in public discourse  how to measure?
  • Research showed significant disciplinary differences: coverage and impact (Haustein & Siebenlist, 2011; Haustein et al., 2013; Holmberg & Thelwall, 2013; Mohammadi& Thelwall, 2013)

  • Mendeleyistheplatformwhichcovers a substantial amountofpapersandshowsreasonableuseractivity
    • Look forgoodcoverage/ usageratio
  • However, somedisciplinespreferotherplatforms
    • Gettoknowthe community preferences
    • Respectreader/ community choices
  • Altmetricsshould not substitute, but cancomplementcitationdata
  • Comparabilityofaltmetrics not given – same situationas in traditional citationanalysis
