On 11.05.2019 I will give a visiting lecture at the department of Information Science of the Hochschule für Technik und Wissenschaft in Chur (University of Applied Sciences, Chur/ Switzerland) on the use and usefulness of bibliometric and scientometric data for knowledge management. The focus is not only on classical citation data, but also on altmetrics and data from social networks such as ResearchGate or the recommender functions of commercial services for science management.
The aim of the workshop is to inform scientists about the functions, contextual conditions (e.g. quality control, selection criteria, perceived quality of a journal/publisher) and parameters (e.g. recommended document types, dissemination in closed access or open access, impact) of scientific publishing. Participants should be enabled to develop informed publication strategies and make career-promoting publication decisions, taking into account context variables and parameters.
