eResearch Altmetric top 10 of 2016

Altmetrics are metrics and qualitative data that are complementary to traditional, citation-based metrics. They can include, for example, citations on Wikipedia and in public policy documents, discussions on research blogs, mainstream media coverage, bookmarks on reference managers like Mendeley, and mentions on social networks such as Twitter.

Using the Altmetric app that is installed in eResearch, the following list details the papers that have received the most online attention during 2016, with their Altmetric score at time of writing. The list is arranged in chronological order, by date of publication, and includes 6 open access papers.

eResearch and the Altmetric doughnut



When looking at eResearch records, at the bottom of the page, you may notice a coloured circle with a number in the middle. This appears for papers that have a doi number and that have received attention online via social media sites, news outlets, reference management tools etc.



This is the Altmetric doughnut, and provides an indication of the online attention that a paper is receiving. To the right of the doughnut (not shown here), you can get an idea of where the paper has been mentioned and you can click on the 'View details on Altmetric's website' to see more in-depth information.

The information provided by Altmetric may be useful alongside traditional bibliometrics, and also has the advantage of appearing a lot faster than traditional publishing citations. By keeping an eye on the attention that a paper is receiving, it may also be useful for gauging the impact or potential impact that research has.

QMU authors: how often are your papers being looked at and downloaded in eResearch?

There are a number of ways that you can find out how people are using or interacting with your published research on eResearch . This post is going to look at the statistics that are available.



From the eResearch homepage, in the left hand menu click on 'Statistics'. this will take you to a page that shows the number of downloads, number of items, and percentages of items that have full text attached, as well as the open access percentage for the whole repository. (Please note that the large downloads spike in August 2016 was probably due to bots masquerading as human users, which were systematically trawling and downloading papers from many UK repositories at that time.)

To dig deeper into the statistics, you can expand the 'most downloaded' and 'top authors' sections, and you can also filter by author, item type, university structure, subject and eprint (record) ID.

To find your own statistics, search for your name either by scrolling through the list, or typing into the text box. You will then be taken to a page that lists your publications and provides information about the number of downloads and hits that your papers have received.  You can dig into this further again by clicking on 'available reports' and selecting from the options there. The 'requests' option is useful for showing you where in the world your papers have been accessed from.
