Maximizing the power of ORCID with PlumX interoperability

PlumAnalytics presentation by Guy Robertson (EBSCO) at the Kenya ORCID workshop in Nairobi

Maximizing the power of ORCID with PlumX interoperability

  1. 1. 1 Maximizing the power of ORCID with PlumX interoperability Presenter Name, Guy Robertson - Regional Sales Manager for East, West and Central Africa EBSCO Information Services Date: 23rd July 2015
  2. 2. 2 What is PlumX? PlumX  is  a  tool  that  allows  researchers   and  ins3tu3ons  to  track  tradi3onal   and  alterna3ve  metrics  (or  altmetrics)   for  research  ar3facts,  allowing  a   researcher  to  have  metrics  to   understand  and  judge  the  impact  of   their  research  and  works.  
  3. 3. 3 Answer the questions And tell the stories About your research
  4. 4. 4 PlumX can help answer these questions you couldn’t answer before What impact has our research had in the past 12 months? How do we arm our researchers to better compete for funding? Can we measure non-STEM, non-article research?

  16. 16. 16 Visualizing Impact: Plum Print •  Includes the 5 categories of metrics •  Circles dynamically change size based on metrics in each category
  17. 17. 17 Researchers Need to Showcase their Impact •  Give them 5 categories of metrics to tell their stories –  Not just a singe count with citations •  Tell the stories of research earlier –  Citation counts take 3-5 years to accrue –  PlumX gives comprehensive metrics in the first year •  Help them create better grant applications
  18. 18. 18 How can you help researchers get funding? •  Add more than just a list of publications to their grant applications –  Give them real-time metrics about their impact •  Help determine where they should publish –  Give metrics on what gets the most engagement •  Showcase more than just their journal articles –  Get credit for books and other research output
  19. 19. 19 Given how tight budgets are around the world, governments are rightfully demanding effectiveness in the programs they pay for. To address these demands, we need better measurement tools to determine which approaches work and which do not.” Bill Gates Gates Foundation Annual Letter 2013 “
  20. 20. 20 CASE STUDY ORCID and Plum X Work Together to Easily Provide Altmetric Information to Researchers An  ORCID  profile  uniquely  iden4fies  scien4fic  and  other   academic  authors.     Once  the  effort  to  create  ORCID  profiles  for  researchers   has  been  done,  you  can  now  easily  connect  their   scholarly  ac4vi4es  with  PlumX  to  track  metrics  about   their  research.     Specifically,  PlumX  uses    ORCID    to  retrieve  a  list  of  the   researcher’s  public  works  and  then  uses  the   informa4on  to  establish  a  PlumX  researcher  profile  and   gather  metrics  about  the  research’s  impact.            
  21. 21. 21 CASE STUDY ORCID and Plum X Work Together to Easily Provide Altmetric Information to Researchers   Most names are not unique, making them hard to distinguish electronically. An ORCID profile fixes the problem, ensuring that Bob Doe of Boston College gets credit for his own work, not the work of Bob Doe of Boston University. The importance of ORCID as a persistent identifier allows PlumX to easily identify the researcher and their associated works, funding, organization
