15 minutes about ... for researcher


Chalmers library offers short lunch lectures on topics of relevance for researchers and doctoral students.

Open access, paid-for by the library

September 21, 12-12:15, Zoom

Are you confused over all of the various open access options? Since 2020 a majority of our publications are included in agreements that allow for open access, that you do not have to pay for from your research funding. Join us to find out more about ways to get an overview in this jungle!

Smart Citations tool: understanding the context of the citation

October 5, 12-12:15, Zoom

We will demonstrate a new tool to explore how a research article has been cited, not just how many times, specifically, if it has been mentioned or supported or contradicted; In which section has the author placed a reference (for instance, the literature review, the method section, or the discussion), the reliability of a reference and reasons of citing a specific source.

Scopus for literature search and analysis

 

October 19, 12-12:15, Zoom

We will demonstrate Scopus – a multidisciplinary abstract and citation database of peer-reviewed literature – to do a comprehensive literature search and refine the results using facets. Further, we will show features to analyze search results and track publication trends, terminologies, journal information analysis, subject areas, highly cited authors, and publications etc.

Web of Science for literature search and analysis

November 2, 12-12:15, Zoom  

We will demonstrate Web of Science - a multidisciplinary abstract and citation database of peer-reviewed literature – for a comprehensive literature search and refine the results using facets. Further, we will present features to analyze search results and track publication trends, highly cited papers in field, hot papers in field, journal impact factor, and journal information analysis among others.

Managing research documents and data

 

November 16, 2-12:15, Zoom

Chalmers research documents and data must be preserved for the future unless the law permits that they are sorted out. These 15 minutes aim to introduce the main consideration in preserving documents and data relating to research.

Explore connected papers in a visual graph

November 23, 12-12:15, Zoom

We will demonstrate a tool- Connected Papers - to visualize papers relevant to a specific topic. Even papers that do not directly cite each other can be strongly connected due to overlapping citations and references that are based on the concepts of similarity metric like co-citation and bibliographic coupling.

Using Data Stewardship Wizard for your data management plans

November 30, 12-12:15, Zoom 

This lecture contains a short introduction to Data Stewardship Wizard (DSW), a tool chosen- and supported by Chalmers to create data management plans for FAIR open science.

Benefits of Scopus, Web of Science and Google Scholar profiles

December 7, 12-12:15, Zoom

Individual researchers’ profiles in Scopus, Web of Science and Google scholar regardless of institutional affiliation ensure to maximize one’s publications profile with the help of analytical tools to track, monitor, analyze and visualize research performance. These enable peers, research institutions, funders, and stakeholders to obtain insight into one’s research. We will present how to create and maintain such profiles.
