New Tools for Managing Your Research : Figshare and Altmetric

Date: 
03/11/2014

The Library arranged a seminar with Figshare and Digital Science on new tools for managing research on Nov 3, 2014 (Mon) for academics, researchers and research students.

Figshare allows users to upload any file format to be made visualisable in the browser so that figures, datasets, videos, papers, posters, presentations, code and filesets can be disseminated in a way that the current scholarly publishing model does not allow.

Altmetric for Institutions tracks both social media and traditional media associated with a researcher's articles, including tweets, blog posts, Mendeley readers, Nature news, the New York Times, the Washington Post, and the BBC. The attention from these outlets allows an article to be assigned an "Altmetric score" and a badge showing the article's score is displayed against articles in Elements.
