Make an AudioSlides for your research

Nader Ale Ebrahim
AudioSlides is a great way to reach a wider audience and increase your presence on social media. AudioSlides presentations allow authors to explain in their own words what their paper is about. AudioSlides presentations enable authors to promote their work, support readers to quickly determine the relevancy of a paper, and no additional cost for authors or readers. Researchers can help readers navigate the growing body of published articles and get their articles noticed by...

New systems for measuring research impact

Nader Ale Ebrahim
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 metrics proposed as alternatives to Impact Factor for journals and personal citation indexes like h-index.  Altmetrics attempts to use...

Research Tools: Supporting Research and Publication

Nader Ale Ebrahim
With the increasing use 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)...

Create a Google Scholar profile to boost research visibility

Nader Ale Ebrahim
Creating an online curriculum vitae (CV) allows you to showcase yourself and your academic and professional achievements in a concise and effective way. Google Scholar “My Citations” is a good tool for creating your research profile which offers a popular way to create an online CV that shows your own papers and the citations they have received. It also calculates a platform-dependent h-index, which many researchers love to track.

Enhance Research Visibility by Tracking Citations

Nader Ale Ebrahim
Congratulation, you published a paper.  Has anyone read it?  or Cited it? Citation tracking is used to discover how many times a particular article has been cited by other articles. Citation counts are not perfect. They are influenced by a number of factors. Review articles are sometimes more often cited than their quality would warrant. Poor quality papers can be cited while being criticized or refuted. In this workshop, I will explain about the advantages...

Make your data discoverable on a data repository

Nader Ale Ebrahim
Previous studies have found that papers with publicly available datasets receive a higher number of citations than similar studies without available data. In addition, new research has found that by putting your research data online, you’ll become up to 30% more highly cited than if you kept your data hidden. In this workshop I will elaborate the advantages of sharing research data and introduce some relevant “Research Tools” for increasing datasets visibility.

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...
