[From Google Translate] Emilio Delgado: "The change in the way of communicating science calls for a change in the way of evaluating its impact".
Emilio Delgado, professor at the University of Granada, has indicated that the evident change in the way the scientific community communicates science requires "a change in the way it evaluates its impact". The professor of the research group of Science Evaluation and Scientific Communication of the UGR has opened the First Conference of dissemination of research and quality criteria of scientific journals held on Wednesday, April 18, 2018 at the Universitat Jaume I.
The researcher, presented by Javier Marzal, Professor of Audiovisual Communication and Advertising, said that "the revolution in academic search engines has brought about a change in the way we communicate", which has extended to other aspects, such as open access, presence on the scientific web and the way we disseminate information. Delgado has recommended, when it comes to the publication of scientific journals, a great deal of punctuality when it comes to publishing, "because it is a decisive impact factor," he said, "as well as a commitment to digital; the inclusion of the DOI (Digital Object Identifier) and good metadata (title, abstract and keywords), as well as the open bibliographic reference and visibility through Google Shoolar, Research Gate, Dimensions, Web of Science or Scopus.
