#1. Beyond Text: Not all journals publish traditional text articles anymore. Journals like JoVE, a video journal provided by the library, and Scientific Data, an open-access publisher of scientific datasets, are changing the way scientists publish and share their work.
#2. Immediately track impact: With social media, the transmission of scientific research has the ability to spread faster than ever before. Tools like Altmetrics, allow you add a bookmarklet to your browser and get information on how many times an article has been shared on Twitter, Facebook or Mendeley. The Altmetrics tool is also built into Scopus.
#3. Read anywhere, anytime: Apps like Browzine help readers keep up with current research by allowing them to create a mobile bookshelf of favorite journals on an iOS or Android tablet. Other apps help you to keep up with the latest NCCN Guidelines, Cochrane Systematic Reviews and find an answer to a clinical question.
Tracking an author’s individual publication impact can be challenging. According to the Australian National Data Society, “Of the more than 6 million authors in a major database, more than two-thirds of them share a last name and single initial with another author, and an ambiguous name in the same database refers ton average to eight people.”
If you have a common name, multiple names or have changed your name during the course of your career, an ORCID ID may be the answer for you. An ORCID ID is a unique, persistent identifier for researchers and scholars that allows authors to distinguish themselves from every other researcher and ensure that their work is recognized. Signing up for an ORCID ID is free and easy to do. Just go to http://orcid.org/
