About INFLIBNET

The Information and Library Network (INFLIBNET) Centre is an autonomous Inter-University Centre (IUC) of the University Grants Commission (UGC) located in the Infocity, Gandhinagar. Major activities and services of the Centre are geared towards modernization of academic libraries and information centres, promotion of information transfer and access, support scholarship, learning and academic pursuits. The Centre acts as a nodal agency for networking of libraries and information centres in universities, institutions of higher learning and R & D institutions in India.The Centre was established as an independent autonomous Inter-University Centre of the UGC in May 1996 and set out to be a major player for promoting scholarly communication among academicians and researchers across the country. With technology being a driving force in the contemporary education system, the INFLIBNET Centre has taken up a number of initiatives for the benefit of the academic community in India.

Introduction

UGC as well as INFLIBNET Centre is bringing out various measures to enhance the quality of research in the Nation. A national repository is created for providing open access to the research results through Shodhganga portal. In order to improve the quality users are expected to be aware of the research ethics and integrity which are the key elements for the design, conduct and reporting of the results of research. Research Scholars or research supervisors who intend to publish their thesis/papers are generally not aware of the rules or ethics of research based writing. Many of these rules have to do with research and proper citation style. Gaining familiarity with these rules, however, is critically important, as inadvertent mistakes can lead to charges of plagiarism, which is the uncredited use (both intentional and unintentional) of somebody else’s words or ideas. To prevent plagiarism on National Level INFLIBNET has initiated to provide anti plagiarism software to many Universities in India. Further, since long, traditional metrics based on citation analysis are in used as a profound measure for the research impact assessment. With the advancement of the Internet and web technologies, there is a growing trend in the use of social media platforms and web sources by the research communities and academia in their research environment to perform various research activities, for collaborating, discussing, and sharing of research, etc. In recent years, data collected from these social media platforms are considered and emerging as a new tool / method for research assessment collectively termed as “Altmetrics”.

Objectives of the Workshop

The objective of this workshop is to introduce the modern ways of conducting literature research, use of discovery tools and databases, use of reference management software such as Mendeley & Zotero, and data analytical tool such as R Language in analysing for research data.

The Workshop will help the participants in applying proper research methodology and improving their analysis by applying various statistical techniques using popular software. The course aims to improve the research skills and competence among the researchers by strengthening their knowledge as well as improving researcher’s technical writing skills, etc. Further, this workshop will provide the participants a sound overview on different research metrics, especially on altmetrics, its usefulness in research impact evaluation, and explore tools being used to extract social media metrics (altmetrics) data.
