project investigates new approaches offered by Social Media to rethink and
explore newways to measure research outputs by comparing
traditional metrics with Altmetrics (new metrics based on social media).Thus,
we aim to design, develop and evaluate a system prototype called ARIA
"Altmetrics for Research Impact Actuation", to gather and compute altmetrics
to measure research impact.
To develop a system prototype called
“Altmetrics for Research Impact Actuation” (ARIA) to measure research impact
for researchers, universities, research institutes and policy-makers. To
compute cross-metric validation between traditional metrics and altmetrics for
the “hard sciences” disciplines, the “non-hard sciences” disciplines, and
“innovation and commercialization”.
Research Study Design
In this study, we use a mixed method that covers a
variety of approaches in data collection, including Interviews, Surveys,
Content Analysis, Social Network Analysis, and Usability Studies.
Data collection was conducted through three (3) phases
Phase 1: Worldwide survey, feature analysis, case
study and interviews
Phase 2: Social media data extraction and analysis
Phase 3: Data collection pertaining to ARIA evaluation
