Book Description :

Becoming Metric-Wise: A Bibliometric Guide for Researchers aims to inform researchers about metrics so that they become aware of the evaluative techniques being applied to their scientific output. Understanding these concepts will help them during their funding initiatives, and in hiring and tenure. The book not only describes what indicators do (or are designed to do, which is not always the same thing), but also gives precise mathematical formulae so that indicators can be properly understood and evaluated. Metrics have become a critical issue in science, with widespread international discussion taking place on the subject across scientific journals and organizations. As researchers should know the publication-citation context, the mathematical formulae of indicators being used by evaluating committees and their consequences, and how such indicators might be misused, this book provides an ideal tome on the topic. Provides researchers with a detailed understanding of bibliometric indicators and their applications Empowers researchers looking to understand the indicators relevant to their work and careers Presents an informed and rounded picture of bibliometrics, including the strengths and shortcomings of particular indicators Supplies the mathematics behind bibliometric indicators so they can be properly understood Written by authors with longstanding expertise who are considered global leaders in the field of bibliometrics

Book Description :

New digital technologies have transformed how scientific information is created, disseminated—and discovered. The emergence of new forms of scientific publishing based on open science and open access have caused a major shift in scientific communication and a restructuring of the flow of information. Specialized indexing services and search engines are trying to get into information seekers’ minds to understand what users are actually looking for when typing all these keywords or drawing chemical structures. Using artificial intelligence (AI), machine learning, and semantic indexing, these "discovery agents" are trying to anticipate users’ information needs. In this highly competitive environment, authors should not sit and rely only on publishers, search engines, and indexing services to make their works visible. They need to communicate about their research and reach out to a larger audience. Driving Science Information Discovery in the Digital Age looks through the "eyes" of the main "players" in this "game" and examines the discovery of scientific information from three different, but intertwined, perspectives: Discovering, managing, and using information (Information seeker perspective) Publishing, disseminating, and making information discoverable (Publisher perspective) Creating, spreading, and promoting information (Author perspective). Presents an overview of the current scientific publishing landscape Shows how users can search for scientific information more efficiently Critically analyses the metrics used to measure the quality of journals and the impact of research Looks at the discovery of scientific information from the perspectives of information seekers, publishers, and authors Delves into the practices used by specialized indexing services and search engines to process scientific information and make it discoverable Recommends strategies that authors could use to promote their research.

Book Description :

This book provides its readers with an introduction to interesting prediction and science dynamics problems in the field of Science of Science. Prediction focuses on the forecasting of future performance (or impact) of an entity, either a research article or a scientist, and also the prediction of future links in collaboration networks or identifying missing links in citation networks. The single chapters are written in a way that help the reader gain a detailed technical understanding of the corresponding subjects, the strength and weaknesses of the state-of-the-art approaches for each described problem, and the currently open challenges. While chapter 1 provides a useful contribution in the theoretical foundations of the fields of scientometrics and science of science, chapters 2-4 turn the focal point to the study of factors that affect research impact and its dynamics. Chapters 5-7 then focus on article-level measures that quantify the current and future impact of scientific articles. Next, chapters 8-10 investigate subjects relevant to predicting the future impact of individual researchers. Finally, chapters 11-13 focus on science evolution and dynamics, leveraging heterogeneous and interconnected data, where the analysis of research topic trends and their evolution has always played a key role in impact prediction approaches and quantitative analyses in the field of bibliometrics. Each chapter can be read independently, since it includes a detailed description of the problem being investigated along with a thorough discussion and study of the respective state-of-the-art. Due to the cross-disciplinary character of the Science of Science field, the book may be useful to interested readers from a variety of disciplines like information science, information retrieval, network science, informetrics, scientometrics, and machine learning, to name a few. The profiles of the readers may also be diverse ranging from researchers and professors in the respective fields to students and developers being curious about the covered subjects.

Book Description :

Scientometrics for the Humanities and Social Sciences is the first ever book on scientometrics that deals with the historical development of both quantitative and qualitative data analysis in scientometric studies. It focuses on its applicability in new and emerging areas of inquiry. This important book presents the inherent potential for data mining and analysis of qualitative data in scientometrics. The author provides select cases of scientometric studies in the humanities and social sciences, explaining their research objectives, sources of data and methodologies. It illustrates how data can be gathered not only from prominent online databases and repositories, but also from journals that are not stored in these databases. With the support of specific examples, the book shows how data on demographic variables can be collected to supplement scientometric data. The book deals with a research methodology which has an increasing applicability not only to the study of science, but also to the study of the disciplines in the humanities and social sciences.

Book Description :

Metrics for software development are usually employed ad-hoc and without clear directions for interpreting the numbers and acting on them. Almost every other engineering discipline has clear guidelines for measuring processes and products and making decisions based on quantified evidence. This practical book describes how to integrate processes and metrics to ensure easier and more effective enterprise software development. It crosses the divide between theory and practice and also discusses why essential processes so often fail to deliver quality industrial software. Enterprise Software Development introduces the techniques for building, applying and interpreting metrics for the workflows across the software development life cycle phases of inception, elaboration, construction and transition. It is a must read for software engineering practitioners (architects, application developers, designers and project managers), academics, and students and apprentices of software engineering.

Book Description :

The ability to organise and measure performance is a key part of the implementation of IT Service Management processes. This publication contains practical information on the provision of useful and meaningful metrics, as well as how best to use them within an organisation, including generic principles (such as SMART and KISS), specific examples and templates for the use of each metricAll metrics discussed are directly related to process objectives, in order to help create a service-focused management system. This publication complements the ITIL, CobiT and ISO20000 service management principles. “If you need to develop metrics for an IT environment, buy this book or hire a consultant who has read it” G. Kieliszek, Healthcare CIO (Amazon) "This is more than a book, it's a practical, useable "A to Z" of IT Service Management Metrics! Peter Brooks (Author) has given us all a crystal clear view of a neglected, blurred piece of the IT Service Management puzzle. As a Principal ITSM Consultant working for Foster-Melliar in South Africa I am continuously disappointed by the many ITSM books produced that generally regurgitate what is already known by many in the industry. Metrics for IT Service Organisations provides a vast array of possible audiences something that many ITSM volumes do not, and this is a Practical, useable view of "How" to plan for, design, manage and improve the critical measures IT Service organisations require from both a strategic, tactical and operational perspective. I don't carry many books around with me, this one, I most certainly will!!" Ian Clark Principal ITSM Consultant Foster-Melliar "With all the focus on IT Governance and IT Business process management. It is easy to see why metric are becoming hugely important for the management of organisations. In reality however, getting the right set of metrics in place is by no means a simple exercise. Metrics for IT service organisations can be a great help. Using ITIL as the basis the book lists many useful examples of metrics. But what is more important, is that it gives us insight into to creation of "good" metrics and the dangers of "bad" metrics. " Emma Speakman IT BPM consultant SA/NL/UK "Looking for a comprehensive, in-depth exploration and explanation of what metrics to use in your ITSM journey? Then 'Metrics for IT Service Organizations' by Peter Brooks may be exactly what you're looking for. This (new) book not only covers what metrics need to be seriously considered, but explains the 'why' and 'how' behind selecting and defining them, pointing out along the way many of the dangers and pitfalls of selecting the wrong ones; or too many. If you tend to agree that 'what gets measured gets done', then applying the ideas in Peter's book will assist you in getting the right things done." Ken Wendle (FISM) previous President of the itSMF USA, works as a Senior Solution Architect for Hewlett Packard's OpenView Software division Given that itSMF is the source, readers of this book will naturally expect a 'best practices' view on metrics, and a highly practical reference text. More particularly, though, the special merit of the text is its carefulness in stressing that metrics must be both useful and meaningful, and that the meaning comes from the business perspective on IT management processes - a perspective always represented by a stated business objective. By encouraging readers to seriously commit to defining clear business objectives, the text aims the reader at measurement that avoids excess or irrelevance. Malcolm Ryder (CA Architect)

Book Description :

What’s it like to be a social entrepreneur – not a textbook social entrepreneur but one on the ground? This book offers an explanation. Michael Gordon, leading Social Entrepreneurship expert from the University of Michigan, spoke with more than one hundred social entrepreneurs – from six continents, young and old, just starting out to several decades in, addressing seemingly every societal problem of the day. This book uses their words and experiences to provide a kaleidoscopic description of what it means to become a social entrepreneur. It ranges from the personal and emotional challenges they often face to the grand impact many hope to produce. It touches on the sublime but focuses on the everyday, highlighting the mistakes that have been made, the lessons learned and, especially, what advice they would give to those wanting to start a social venture. This book presents the truth, not the varnish, and is ideal for use in the classroom with students studying social entrepreneurship, and for all new and experienced social entrepreneurs seeking real-life examples of how to overcome challenges. For anyone else, it offers a penetrating portrait of the lives of those committed to changing the world.

Book Description :

ABOUT THE BOOK Who doesnt know Google? From its software and operating system products to its core search functionality, Google is close to omnipresent in our technologically interconnected world. A professor of mine once mentioned Google back when I was studying computer science. He said the search algorithm was brilliant, but the minds behind the mathematical feat were not so adept at web design. This explains Google Searchs simplistic search box and buttons. Not that any fancy, superfluous design was needed since search was the main function of the tool and Google delivered. Indeed, Google delivered and became one of the largest and most reputable companies on earth today. Spearheading the evolution of search engines for an ever-growing Internet, Google helped bring about the advent of a new industry that developed side-by-side with Internet marketing: search engine optimization (SEO). Ranking among the top results in Googles search results page is a marketers dream goal and a businessmans dream: period. There was a documented case back in Googles early years where a small business website was able to become the top result for a particular keyword for just one day, and ended up raking in an impressive $20,000 in profit. The numbers speak to what a powerful tool Google is for generating traffic to websites. The numbers tell how lucrative it can be if you can hack your way to the top of Google Search. MEET THE AUTHOR G Dino (Gino R. Dino) is a freelance web content specialist. He studied Computer Science but is now more adept in SEO than computer programming. He has been writing and developing myriad sorts of Web content on various topics for different people and companies since January of 2009. He enjoys doing what he does as much as he loves learning on the job. When hes not writing for a living, hes writing for leisure. When hes not writing for leisure, hes reading or gaming for inspiration. When hes not doing either, he hatches schemes to change or destroy the world. Researching various areas of marketing, the Internet, and what eventually became a combination of both, G is well acquainted with various concepts and practices in marketing, branding, search, social media, and web copy. Aside from wanting to share what he discovers, he also tries to regularly update his personal technology blog (http://www.xeroavitar.com), while stoking the flames of his penchant for literary writing. EXCERPT FROM THE BOOK We skimmed through the basics of ensuring useful content because that is the simplest to remember: ensure quality, useful content. It is a stark contrast to how important it is and how challenging it can be to actually maintain quality in your content. It is of foremost importance to remember that with quality, useful content, you may eventually reach the top of Google Search even without the tweaks. Now, lets delve into the technical details the hacks that Googlebot is sure to notice, starting from the top. We are literally starting from the top, particularly the first few HTML tags and META elements that Googlebot sees first when it crawls a website. Once more, lets put Googlebots skin on for a moment, and breeze through links in the Internet as you would streets in your neighborhood. Say for instance we come across anchor text within a particular website that says dog kennels and training and points to the URL dogstrainingandsupplies.com. Lets go through a simplified blow-by-blow account of what Googlebot sees and likes.
