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.

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.

MU Published 1,017 Open Access Articles in 2022

International Open Access Week was October 24-30! This year’s theme, Open For Climate Justice, seeks to encourage connection and collaboration among the climate movement and the international open community. Sharing knowledge is a human right, and tackling the climate crisis requires the rapid exchange of knowledge across geographic, economic, and disciplinary boundaries.

So far this year, MU authors published 1,017 open-access articles. These articles have already been cited 826 times; sixteen of which have been listed as Web of Science highly cited papers.

Drs. Qureshi, Baskett, Huang, Lobanova, Navqu and Shyu recently published an open-access article in Clinical Infectious Disease looking at reinfection from SARS-CoV-2. The article has performed well in altmetrics and in Web of Science metrics. Read the article here.

Thank you to all of our MU authors who chose to publish open access.

New White House Office of Science and Technology Policy Guidelines Change Public Access Requirements

This summer, the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy (OSTP) published new guidelines requiring all federally funded research be made available to the public freely and immediately upon its publication. The new memo builds on a 2013 directive, which aimed to increase access to publicly funded research. When introducing the guideline change, Dr. Alondra Nelson, head of OTSP, said, “When research is widely available to other researchers and the public, it can save lives, provide policymakers with the tools to make critical decisions, and drive more equitable outcomes across every sector of society…”

The new OSTP memo contains three important updates:

  • Removing the 12-month delay before research publications funded by the largest federal agencies become publicly available;
  • Directing that both federally-funded research publications and their supporting data should be made publicly accessible at the time of publication; and
  • Bringing all federal agencies into alignment with this open-access publishing policy

Agencies have until the end of 2025 to fully implement their public access and data-sharing plans.

For more information, see this fact sheet from the Scholarly Publishing and Academic Resources Coalition (SPARC).

How Do You Benefit From Open Access?

International Open Access Week is October 24-30! This year’s theme is Open For Climate Justice. This year’s theme seeks to encourage connection and collaboration among the climate movement and the international open community. Sharing knowledge is a human right, and tackling the climate crisis requires the rapid exchange of knowledge across geographic, economic, and disciplinary boundaries.

So, what is Open Access? The basic idea of open access is that it makes copyrightable works available without all of the access barriers associated with the “all rights reserved” model. These can take the form of price barriers and permission barriers (1). These barriers affect communities’ abilities to produce, disseminate, and use knowledge around the world. Openness can create pathways to more equitable knowledge sharing and serve as a means to address the inequities and our response to them.

But how does Open Access benefit you?

  • More exposure for your work; wider collaboration and interdisciplinary engagement: Open Access maximizes the research visibility of your article or journal and helps disseminate your articles more quickly and widely. It makes the content available to those who can’t access research behind a paywall. Research is immediately available without any barriers, and scholars and researchers can build upon this work without any restrictions. Open access enables scholars to work on their research collaboratively on a global scale and helps researchers connect more easily with each other, leading to greater recognition.
  • Increase research impact and citations: SPARC found that there was a citation advantage to articles available through open access.
  • Maintain control: Open Access helps researchers retain the copyright to their work and at the same time ensure people worldwide can access and reuse their research for free. Click here to learn more about retaining your rights.

You are interested in publishing Open Access, but how do you start?

  • Find the open access journals in your subject area by searching the Directory of Open Access Journals. You can also contact your Subject Specialist to help identify the best open access journals in your area to save you time.
  • You can look into MU’s institutional repository, MOSpace, as a place to share your work or explore subject-oriented repositories.
  • If you are a reviewer or editor, make sure to read the Open Access policies of those journals or publishers.
  • Visit our Open Access guide for a more in depth look into the different parts of open access.
