(E-) Valuative Metrics as a contested Field: A comparative Analysis of the Altmetrics- and the Leiden Manifesto.

Leckert, M. (2021).
(E-) Valuative Metrics as a contested Field: A comparative Analysis of the Altmetrics- and the Leiden Manifesto. Scientometrics(126), 9869-9903. https://doi.org/10.1007/s11192-021-04039-1
Abstract

This article comparatively analyzes two manifestos in the field of quantitative science evaluation, the Altmetrics Manifesto (AM) and the Leiden Manifesto (LM). It employs perspectives from the Sociology of (E-) Valuation to make sense of highly visible critiques that organize the current discourse. Four motifs can be reconstructed from the manifestos’ valuation strategies. The AM criticizes the confinedness of established evaluation practices and pledges for an expansion of quantitative research evaluation. The LM denounces the proliferation of ill-applied research metrics and calls for an enclosure of metric research assessment. It can be shown that these motifs are organized diametrically.

The platformization of expertise and the ambiguous worth of Altmetrics.

Leckert, M., & Köchling, S. (2024, Mai).
The platformization of expertise and the ambiguous worth of Altmetrics. Vortrag auf der Tagung Expertise in Digitaler Transformation, Forschungsgruppe "Reorganisation von Wissenspraktiken" am Weizenbaum Institut in Kooperation mit der DGS-Sektion "Wissenschafts- und Technikforschung", Weizenbaum-Institut, Berlin.
Abstract

Expertise in research (e-)valuation is a currently debated matter (CoARA, 2022; DORA, 2012; Wilsdon et al., 2015). The Altmetrics- (Priem et al., 2010) and the Leiden Manifesto (2015) exemplified diametrical visions of how expertise in assessing research should be distributed and practiced (Leckert, 2021). As inherently ambiguous measures, Altmetrics offer insights into how new forms of expertise arise, namely platformized information brokerage. We analyze how multi-dimensional ambivalences around Altmetrics are silenced by motifs of discursive convergence in order to show a) how research assessment is induced with new objectives, and b) how new forms of expertise re-distribute competences and responsibilities in research (e-) valuation.

Quality, impact, productivity: Researchers' conceptions of bibliometric indicators and altmetrics.

Sachse, J., & Leckert, M. (2022, Oktober).
Quality, impact, productivity: Researchers' conceptions of bibliometric indicators and altmetrics. Vortrag auf dem Workshop Metrics 2022: ASIS&T Virtual Workshop on Informetrics and Scientometrics Research, Association for Information Science & Technology. https://doi.org/10.5281/zenodo.7337147
Abstract

Bibliometric measures are increasingly used in academic funding and hiring situations. Although rather vaguely described as “impact” or “performance” indicators, they often appear to be equaled with research quality. Altmetrics challenge established bibliometric evaluation concepts by promoting alternative notions of impact: Attention, visibility or societal relevance are some of the concepts that may be used to charge metrics with value and thus add to the many dimensions of quality. Research quality, however, is a hard to define concept. Researchers are likely to express different understandings of quality, influenced by their fields’ shared epistemic and cultural beliefs.

Deterritorialization of Digital Science Communication – The Case of Altmetrics.

Leckert, M. (2022, Mai).
Deterritorialization of Digital Science Communication – The Case of Altmetrics. Vortrag auf der Konferenz 20th STS Conference Graz 2022 , Graz University of Technology, Graz, Austria.
Abstract

The advance of Open Science by Digital science communication (DSC) has been a major argument in promoting Altmetrics. Such metrifications of DSC have turned out to be a profitable business: Collected from commercial online platforms, aggregated by for-profit companies, showcased by most large publishers. While the question ‘what do they mean?’ remains, Altmetrics are reflected back on scientists, scoring their work alongside citation measures. By analyzing interviews with both researchers active in DSC and experts from the Altmetrics field, this contribution contrasts scientists’ situated online behavior with its re(e-)valuation in aggregated form. This allows to study the production of reactive potentials in science (e-) valuation.
