What is ScholarWorks?

ScholarWorks is a set of services offered by Duke Libraries to assist members of the Duke community with publishing and archiving their research, to ensure that it reaches the broadest possible audience for the longest possible period of time.

Duke Libraries can help you share your peer-reviewed article, thesis, dissertation, data, or other digital objects via an open access repository. We provide a platform for publishing and managing an online journal, and can advise on copyright issues, scholarly publishing, data management, building and managing digital research projects, and more.

ScholComm on the Edge Discussion Series – July – “Altmetrics & Altmetric for Institutions”

Tuesday, July 14, 2015 from 3:00pm to 4:00pm in The Edge Workshop Room

DUL has recently signed a site license for Duke to have access to Altmetric for Institutions (https://www.altmetric.com/institutions.php). At the July 14 meeting we’ll have a discussion of what altmetrics are, how they can or shouldn’t be used, and other issues related to how universities can recognize and reward non-traditional academic work (like digital projects) and various methods of understanding impact and value beyond citations and impact factors.

We’ll also give an overview of how the Altmetric for Institutions system works, and invite everyone to attend a more detailed workshop specifically on that at a different time. In the meantime, here’s a primer on altmetrics for librarians: http://blog.impactstory.org/4-things-librarians-altmetrics/
