The challenges of scientific publishing


By request of our master program on Educational Innovation, I’ll be offering this conference on ‘The challenges of scientific publishing’ (English only), as a way for our students to familiarize themselves with the vocabulary and discourse around this topic. Anyone else is most welcome too!


Concytec’s DEGC Knowledge Café

I participated in #Concytec‘s DEGC Knowledge Café, where we had an interesting conversation about scientific production and evaluation. A very interestin dynamic that they do on Fridays to break the routine, awake creativity and enable the exchange of ideas!

I already published my research, what now?

On Friday, October 21, in the XI Librarianship Meeting of Baja California, organized by ABIBAC, Asoc. de Bibliotecarios de Baja California, A.C., taking place in CETYS Universidad, campus Mexicali, I presented the workshop for librarians/researchers: ‘I already published my research, what now? Profiles management and Altmetrics to enhance visibility, attention and presume a little bit’.

The objective of this workshop was to provide tools, strategies and procedures so that information professionals and libraries can support researchers in promoting their research published in scientific journals using international professional networks and channels for this purpose.

The contents presented include the definition of professional networks and channels for the promotion of scientific publications, as well as a strategic workflow that every researcher should use in order to promote and gain value in terms of their visibility, attention and authority as scientists.

The importance of this type of workshop is that if information professionals and libraries manage the formal channels for the promotion and metrics of the scientific publications evaluation, elements that are within this discipline, they can position themselves with a vital role within the processes of scientific communication in their institutions. These issues also represent some important support for researchers, since they usually do not do it themselves because of time constraints or ignorance. However, conducting an appropriate promotion through the relevant scientific channels, networks and indexes are key activities for enhancing the visibility of a researcher, to ensure that their intellectual production is read and cited, which will allow them to be part of the National Researchers System, access research funds, or collaborative projects, as well as reaching other national and international merits. All these are important issues for higher education institutions, although some of them will not want to address these issues or will fail to recognize them, as the area of research and intellectual production becomes more important as an element used to evaluate the capacity and quality of an educational institution. Topics such as those discussed in the workshop reinforce institutional research plans, since they are basic strategies for the intellectual production carried out in institutions to generate a greater impact, which allows increasing the number of researchers who have distinctions and are internationally recognized as authorities In their areas. This means that educational institutions gain greater visibility, recognition and positioning as knowledge-generating institutions and are more favorably evaluated in international

Presentation at ECIL 2016: Assessing spanish-speaking university students’ info-competencies

Our presentation at #ECIL2016 in Prague: ‘Assessing spanish-speaking university students’ info-competencies with iSkills, SAILS, and an in-house instrument: Challenges and benefits’ was a success! Coauthors: Jesus Lau (presented at the conference), Juan D. Machin-Mastromatteo, Alberto Gárate, and A.
