Heather Piwowar
I just had a comment published in Nature! Is about the NSF valuing more than just Publications, and how altmetrics will help.http://www.nature.com/nature... (free for 1-2 weeks) Working on blog post about it...
In the meantime, David Colquhoun has decided to make his distaste for altmetrics personal by discrediting the messanger. Since I have you guys to thank for increasing my awareness of classic derailing techniques, figured I'd point it out: https://twitter.com/david_c... - Heather Piwowar
I've responded to him w facts about my credentials and an open offer to talk about the substance of his claims. It isn't the first time he's taken this approach. Yknow, if you don't like the ideas, talk about the ideas. - Heather Piwowar
what a dick - jambina
because wetlab experience is what matters? Doesn't he know that the only sciences are the hard ones? - DJF
I read his tweet and your response and actually said "hoo!" out loud quietly to myself in my office. Well done. - Catherine Pellegrino
Because whatever he considers real scientists are all really smart and correct all the time about altmetrics. Or not. - Rachel Walden
Real scientists don't care about data. or something. - DJF
Ah, but are you a managerialist or a quack? jambina +1 - John Dupuis
Classy response! Go you :) - Christina Pikas from iPhone
I agree with Christina. It's clear he was completely unprepared to be called on his classless remarks. - John Dupuis
Did you also respond to that blog post I forwarded to you? Let me see if I can find it. http://plested.wordpress.com/2013... - Joe - Systems Analyst from iPod
Actually, I'd be interested in some pointers to a refutation of the blog post from Run Joe Run above - it does seem that many altmetrics capture the attention garnered by a some aspect of research. But how does one extract meaning from that? - Rajarshi Guha
gosh :( - Ross Mounce
You'd think someone against managerialsim ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki... ) would actually *support* the broadening of research evaluation. I don't think he's read enough around the subject. Seems to be caught on the straw-man argument that it's just raw uncontextualised numbers of tweets and facebook likes. - Ross Mounce
@Rajarshi you might be interested in my refutations against some of the misunderstandings about altmetrics here on this thread: http://occamstypewriter.org/boboh... - Ross Mounce
Thanks Ross. The comment thread there is quite interesting - but the sense I get from is that while citation stats focus on scholarly usage, the altmetrics focus on social media citations (tweets etc) is more oriented towards public/popular usage of research. Certainly, it seems to be linked to how connectd you are. I'd guess there's some sort of 'rich get richer' effect at play in these metrics (?) - Rajarshi Guha
"Rich get richer" is a recurrent problem, everywhere. It caused by human nature, sadly. Despite our "civilization", humans are still selfish bastards: "feed my own children first". Fortunately, many people do realize that doing that *can* also be beneficial for other children. Sadly, many don't (or don't care or worse). And then there is a class of people who mix up trust and science:... more... - Egon Willighagen
Now, back to #altmetrics... it *is* a really important question: what is impact. Too many people do not see that metrics are tools (estimates) of what we are really interested in. But since we do not have clear what we really are interested in (except food for the children), it is hard to rank metrics. Worse, people think they understand what those metrics estimate, and are often wrong.... more... - Egon Willighagen
Additionally, we need good (open) diagrams showing how various impacts relate to each other... "without visibility, no impact" (whatever those mean). Each connection will be linked to literature about that link. For example, does higher accessibility lead to higher citation counts? - Egon Willighagen
Finally (and then I'll try to do some "science" again, hahahaha!) we need better tools for measuring thing. For example, can we please finally start taking CiTO serious and start pushing that massively? - Egon Willighagen
+1 for CiTO :) - Ross Mounce
After a brief twitter exchange, this guy is clearly an "everything worthwhile must be in traditional journal articles" fellow, with no apparent interest in either acknowledging his rudeness to Heather or in seeing anything of value outside of traditional publishing methods. - Rachel Walden
@Graham: http://www.essepuntato.it/lode... CiTO, the Citation Typing Ontology, is an ontology for the characterization of citations, both factually and rhetorically. It forms part of SPAR, a suite of Semantic Publishing and Referencing Ontologies. - Ross Mounce
It's not just some ideological 'great idea' vapourware either. Citeulike has had it implemented for ages http://jodischneider.com/blog... trouble is marking up the relationships is currently all manual. If anyone has some semi-automated approaches / workflows I'd love to hear about it - Ross Mounce
Wow, Rachel masterfully shows how it is done, here https://twitter.com/rachel_... and in subsequent tweets. Thanks for calling him on it in public, Rachel. Whether I'm a scientist or not shouldn't matter (though he's got no leg to stand on to say I'm not), let's talk issues. - Heather Piwowar
+1 for CiTO. I dunno the best way to push it though, no tool yet that makes it easy. I think it'd have to be a tool that automatically classifies them when you submit a paper, and then authors are tasked to fix wrong ones. or other ideas? - Heather Piwowar

i sort of had that feeling... though maybe some ARL could prove us wrong? - kendrak
well, non-snarkily, I hope they pick a winner who's fighting for respect from the home library. - RepoRat
it's all for prestige. - kendrak
for best results, this needs to be perceived as prestigious for the library, not just the librarian. be interesting to see if Stanford can pull that off. - RepoRat
