Suggestion of the week: Create Project Specific Pages on ImpactStory #AltMetrics

So - I have been doing a little "hacking" of the Impact Story system to create pages specific for individual projects rather than for me or other researchers.  I did this last week for my microBEnet project: Made a project page (hack?) for microBEnet on ImpactStory.  And been playing around with the concept some more.

For example see this page I made for the "iSEEM2: Environmental Niche Atlas" project that is a collaboration between my lab and the lab of Katie Pollard at UCSF (supported by the Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation).  To do this, I registered a new account in ImpactStory (with the first name i and last name SEEM2; using an alternative email address I have). I then used the "upload individual products" and loaded up Pubmed IDs, DOIs, Github web addresses, Slideshare web addresses and more.  And Voila I get I nice page with Altmetrics for our project rather than for myself.




Now I have not loaded everything done on this project yet, but already this is a helpful way to post results from our project and look at some of their metrics. I also updated the website for the project: http://iseem2.wordpress.com.

I think making such project specific pages will end up being useful in many ways. I discovered one this AM in an email I got from Impact Story.  I have appended it below.  Turns out they give weekly updates on how your metrics have changed for that week.  This is the best thing I have seen regarding "Alt Metrics" anywhere.  Very very useful.  Still not sure if this is an "acceptable" use of ImpactStory but I figure they should be OK with it.

  1. Jonathan, we're so glad you like the updates to our site design and the new notification emails! We've been discussing the prospect of providing "project" pages; it's related to the Feedback suggestion we're already thinking on to link multiple research products together in "packages" [1].

    I encourage you and your readers to go vote the suggestion up on our Forum [1] or create and vote for a new one, if the existing suggestion doesn't meet your use case well enough.
