Good morning! Yesterday was a very special day for the EC3 group, as Daniel Torres-Salinas, Wenceslao Arroyo-Machado and Nicolás Robinson-García presented the results of their last project: InfluSciencE. Moreover, they made use of the Yosigopublicando to make this presentation.

What were InfluScience goals?

Departing from a defence of altmetrics, this project aimed at determining which altmetrics are most useful to enlighten our knowledge of the scientific ecosystem. Moreover, it sought to openly and publicly provide data to everyone interested in it, whether they have an academic background or not.

Did they achieve them?

The answer is: yes, they did! They used yesterday’s presentation to show their results and present their platform on rankings. They showed Twitter, news, reports and Wikipedia altmetrics on different levels and they demonstrated how to download data from the platform. If you want to keep up to date with the updates of this project, keep an eye on their website!

We recommend librarians from all around the world to watch the presentation (in case you haven’t already😋). We believe the insights they provide can be extremely useful to those running libraries or bibliometric units, to science managers and to any researcher interested in learning about the social impact of their scientific publications.
