Delivering Trending Publications to Researchers

UCSF is piloting a way to deliver publications, which are matched to researchers’ current interests and trending in the research community, to researchers in a timely way. <br>UCSF searches PubMed for publications that match a researcher’s stated interests on her or his profile page. We then assess those publications using Altmetric parameters to determine which are getting the most new-media buzz: tweets, shares, reads and posts. The most popular publications are ranked and the top five presented to the researcher via email. If this pilot is successful, we plan to build an Open Research Networking Gadget to display the content to the researcher when s/he signs in to UCSF Profiles.
