The Kaleidoscope of Impact: same data, different perspectives, constantly changing
Presentation for Advancing Research Communication and Scholarship (ARCS) Conference 2015 in Philadelphia, PA. Presented on 04/28/2015. Slides were altered from this format to fit the group presentation (see Related URL: slideshare)
Scholars, scientists, academic institutions, publishers and funders are all interested in impact. We have different roles and goals, and therefore different reasons for needing to understand impact; we are therefore asking different questions about impact, and those questions continue to evolve, much as the concept of impact itself is evolving. To answer our different questions, do we need different data, in separate silos, or are we looking at the same data, from different angles? This session gathered researcher, library, publisher and metrics provider perspectives to consider who has an interest in impact, what data they are interested in, how they use it, and how the situation is evolving as e.g. business models and technical infrastructures shift.
