Event Description

Action, information, reaction, that is the definition of a feedback loop. A feedback loop is an effective tool for changing behavior. The basic premise is simple. Provide people with information about their actions in real time (or something close to it), then give them an opportunity to change those actions, pushing them toward better behaviors. A prime example of a feedback loop in action is the radar-enabled “Your Speed” signs next to speed limit signs. They are a proven method for getting people to slow down.

In recent years mandates for researchers to publish their research – both articles and data – openly are growing. Yet, mandates do not always work; researchers still do not do this. Altmetrics, and the information about how people are interacting with research, can provide the feedback loop needed to help motivate people to publish openly.

In this one-hour webinar, Mike Showalter of Plum Analytics will describe and demonstrate altmetrics and open access and you will learn about the capabilities of using altmetrics as your own open access feedback loop. There will be time for questions.
