Using Repository Data To Attract the Researchers’ Attention and To Promote Research Outcomes – Publication Profiles@Chalmers
Conference poster, 2012
How can the library use the extensive and well-structured data contained
in the institutional repository to attract the researchers attention
and to promote the research outcome of the university?
Publication data is still usually presented in a traditional bibliographic style, in
the form of publication lists and similar. But could this data also be used to present
research activities and publications in a way that would get even more attention
This question has been underlying the initiative Publication Profiles at Chalmers.
We have used data, already available in the local publication database –
Chalmers Publication Database (CPL) - and data mining techniques, in order to
aggregate profiles on multiple levels, such as
• Individual researcher
• Departement/Research Group
• Subject Field
• Strategic Areas of Advance
