Lightning Talks Session 1

We are joined by 3 speakers for today's lightning presentations:

  1. Wait! What? There's lots of vital stuff missing from the scholarly record! - Toby Green, Coherent Digital

The scholarly record has always comprised more than books & journals - pamphlets, reports, working papers etc, i.e. the much-ignored & often-misunderstood ‘grey literature’. Curiously, digital makes it harder for the "more" to be included in today's scholarly record & much is now missing. What makes this urgent is that Web 2.0 has unleashed a huge increase in born-digital grey stuff.

  1. Influential Researcher: tackling researcher engagement with metrics through personalised action plans - James Barnett, University of Birmingham

This lightning talk explores the background of the ‘Influential Researcher’ programme, its development through the lens of responsible metrics, & highlights how running ‘Online Publication Profile’ workshops (where attendees are sent a personalised action plan prior to the session) give time-poor researchers a practical set of steps for curating their online identities.

Scholarship that’s built to last: Strategies for publishers, platform creators, & authors - Karen Hanson, Portico, ITHAKA

Enabled by the web-dominated digital era, many publishers are supporting enhanced forms of scholarly publication that include features such as embedded multimedia, interactive maps, annotations, non-linear navigation, & more.
