"We are currently charting the creation and availability (supply side) and usage (demand side) of research tools. After that we hope to further investigate why researchers use certain tools, to find out what tool usage patterns can tell us about the changes in scholarly communication, and, finally, to uncover the driving forces behind the creation and innovation of research tools and the (lack of) interoperability of these tools. Everything we do is available online"
"This presentation will provide an overview of the various types of networking and collaborative sites available to scientists and ways to expose your scientific activities online. Many of these can ultimately contribute to the developing measures of you as a scientist as identified in the new world of alternative metrics. Participating offers a great opportunity to develop a scientific profile within the community and may ultimately be very beneficial, especially to scientists early in their career."
Not only for early career researchers....veterinary medicine is a very small community of practice with a huge mandate...protect the health of all species but one (and protect human health also). Open research fully supports the land grant mission. Erin McKiernan explains how and why to share your work.
"Why Search and Social Matter....This session showcased the experiences of current Harvard faculty....who addressed ways in which academics can maximize online exposure for themselves and their scholarly work." Short on time? Begin with Gary King at minute 27.
