New Tools for 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.

Publish online magazine to promote publications and research findings

Nader Ale Ebrahim
The long run research findings will be disseminated through publications. However, researchers may have created some local content which should be circulated immediately. Online magazines can be one solution through content curation to immediately circulate the research findings. Content curation is not just sharing all kinds of content you stumble upon or source. It’s most of all about doing it in a smart and audience-centric way, by focusing on specific topics you want to curate...

Contribute to Wikipedia: An approach to Increase Research Visibility on the Web

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?.

Digital Object Identifier (DOI): Introduction and Applications

Nader Ale Ebrahim
The Digital Object Identifier (DOI) is used for identifying intellectual property in the digital environment. The DOI is like a digital fingerprint: Each article receives a unique one at birth, and it can be used to identify the article throughout its lifespan, no matter where it goes. A DOI should be interpreted as 'digital identifier of an object' rather than 'identifier of a digital object'. A DOI can be assigned to any Object. In this...

Create a publication database for enhancing research visibility

Nader Ale Ebrahim
In a competitive research landscape, researchers can no longer afford to just publish and hope for receiving impact. To leave a mark, researchers have to take their impact into their own hands. Researchers need to keep all of their scholarly output in a database, to share through academic social networking sites. Researchers also, should create a "permalink" for each of their publications. A "permalink" is a stable, permanent (or persistent) link to an online journal...
