Research Tools for Research Cycle: From SEARCH to DISSEMINATION

Nader Ale Ebrahim
With the increasing usage of information and communications technology (ICT), researchers are able to use computer software/tools to find, organize, manipulate, analyze, and share relevant information. However, there are hundreds of such tools to select from, for various research-related uses. I have collected over 700 “Research Tools” that can help researchers do their work efficiently. “Research Tools” consists of a hierarchical set of nodes. It has four main nodes: (1) Searching the literature, (2) Writing...

Copyright Checking and Pre-print / Post-print Preparations

Nader Ale Ebrahim
With overwhelming thousands of online journals daily, many scholarly articles simply never reach their intended audience and consequently fail to generate the impact they deserve. Traditionally, scholarly publishers ensured the visibility of an authors’ work by circulating print journals to targeted readers. But fewer people are reading print journals anymore and as content continues to migrate from print to online — how can researchers optimize electronic distribution of content? This presentation, lead you to prepare...

Improving Research Visibility Part 7: Measuring Research Impact

Nader Ale Ebrahim
Measuring research impact by utilizing different metrics, help you to see the bigger picture of your research publications influences. The reach of a publication can no longer be judged exclusively by the number of times it is cited. Because, we are now in the digital and sharing information age, academic conversations are as likely to be found on various academic social networks. So, we need new tools to measure the research impact. Altmetrics are new...

Improve Research Visibility and Impact by Contributing to Wikipedia

Nader Ale Ebrahim
Wikipedia is a tool for collaboration, information sharing and knowledge/content management which anyone can edit. Wikipedia is widely used by students during the research process. So, due to Wikipedia popularity, contributing to Wikipedia website is one way of increasing citation score. In this workshop, I try to answer “Does including your papers as citations on Wikipedia increase the number of academic citations you get?” if yes, how?.

Research Articles Repositories for Boosting Research Citation and Visibility

Nader Ale Ebrahim
Repositories are digital collections of the scholarly outputs  
created within a university or research institution. The main purposes of repositories are to provide open access to the institution’s research output. The online repositories now run by most major research universities. Universities can deposit any research papers that has required to be freely available. The university online repositories will make some substantive version of all its research outputs available online in a free-to-view form. The contents...
