Increase Your Research Impact Through Alternative Metrics

Alternative metrics provide an alternative for measuring impact at the article level. Looking at alternative metrics (altmetrics) shows you a quicker image of the conversations taking place around your research. It also provides a broader view of the impact your research is making, as altmetrics data can help you understand how your research is being interacted with by the public, government, policymakers, and other researchers. Alternative metrics include social media shares, blog posts, and numbers of downloads and views. 

Not all articles will have alternative metrics, but if your article does, you will see something similar to the image below. Depending on the database and what almetrics they use, this will vary. No matter the altmetrics, you will see the impact of your research faster than traditional metrics like impact factors.

Learn more about altmetrics and how to track your altmetrics in our library guide.

PowerNotes Available for MU Faculty and Students

The MU Libraries and Campus Writing Program, with support from the Provost’s Office, are excited to announce that campus now has access to PowerNotes. This new tool is both a browser extension and outline creator that conceptually bridges the gap between research and writing.

PowerNotes is designed to “address the challenges inherent to source-based writing in the digital environment.” The extension allows you to automatically save text, take notes, and capture both citations and URLs all in one click, without ever leaving the article, PDF, e-book or website you’re currently reading. Highlighted quotes and accompanying details are saved as tiles or notecards in a outline that evolves as you research, which can be shared with collaborators and exported into Word, or just as the bibliography.

If you’re interested in learning more, the workshop on PowerNotes is available through the Libraries YouTube channel, and provides an in-depth demonstration in addition to discussing instruction applications. You can also check out the PowerNotes website for short video tutorials on specific features and educator resources.

Contact Kimberly Moeller for any questions, or if your department would like to schedule a presentation!

Funding for PowerNotes provided by the University of Missouri Libraries, the Campus Writing Program, and the Provost Strategic Initiative Fund.

New Ebook Highlight: Indigenous Public Health: Improvement Through Community-Engaged Interventions

We’ve recently added Indigenous Public Health: Improvement Through Community-Engaged Interventions to our online collection.

Income, education, job security, food and housing, and gender and race are all examples of the social determinants of health. These factors influence the health and well-being of patients, as well as how they interact with health care providers and receive health care, and unfortunately, certain biases can become a barrier to maintaining good health in some communities. Indigenous groups in North America and US-associated Pacific jurisdictions have been subjected to occupation and forced relocation, mandated boarding schools, and other attempts by state and federal governments to eliminate their cultural strengths and resources.

Indigenous Public Health illustrates how successful community engagement strategies, programs, and resources within Indigenous communities have resulted in diverse, successful public health programs, and helped community members overcome barriers to health. Editors Linda Burhansstipanov and Kathryn L. Braun explore the problems that impact engagement efforts, discuss public health topics, acknowledge and honor the strengths of different communities, and emphasize that collaboration and the sharing of resources can only improve lives.
