I'm Kim Holmberg (PhD), a web researcher and an information scientist. My research interests include social media, webometrics, altmetrics, scientometrics, social network analysis, and online information dissemination. I'm working as a research associate at the Research Unit for the Sociology of Education at University of Turku. Here I'm conducting altmetric and scientometric research. 

I'm also currently collaborating with some brilliant researchers on various papers about social media and how we use social media for various purposes. These projects include studying online conversations about climate change, scientific activities in social media and investigating the meaning and validity of altmetrics, investigating how researchers use Twitter, studying Twitter conversations about diabetes and mapping information dissemination in social media. To study these phenomenon I'm mainly using quantitative methods, such as webometric and statistical research methods and social network analysis. 

Sometimes I get invited to awesome places to do one of my favorite things: talk about what I do. I've had over 100 keynotes, invited talks, workshops and guest lectures and I've given over 30 interviews to media about social media, web research, library 2.0, and virtual worlds in education. Another of my favorite things is teaching, mainly because I believe I often learn more from students than they learn from me. I've also been on teacher exchanges to UWC in Cape Town, South Africa, and to UNAM in Windhoek, Namibia (loved it!) and I've taught over 50 courses at the Department of Information Studies at Åbo Akademi University, Finland (loved that too).

Abstract

Purpose – The purpose of this paper is to analyze the tweeting behavior of 37 astrophysicists on Twitter and compares their tweeting behavior with their publication behavior and citation impact to show whether they tweet research-related topics or not.
Design/methodology/approach – Astrophysicists on Twitter are selected to compare their tweets with their publications from Web of Science. Different user groups are identified based on tweeting and publication frequency.
Findings – A moderate negative correlation (?=-0.339) is found between the number of publications and tweets per day, while retweet and citation rates do not correlate. The similarity between tweets and abstracts is very low (cos=0.081). User groups show different tweeting behavior such as retweeting and including hashtags, usernames and URLs.
Research limitations/implications – The study is limited in terms of the small set of astrophysicists. Results are not necessarily representative of the entire astrophysicist community on Twitter and they most certainly do not apply to scientists in general. Future research should apply the methods to a larger set of researchers and other scientific disciplines.
Practical implications – To a certain extent, this study helps to understand how researchers use Twitter. The results hint at the fact that impact on Twitter can neither be equated with nor replace traditional research impact metrics. However, tweets and other so-called altmetrics might be able to reflect other impact of scientists such as public outreach and science communication.
Originality/value – To the best of the knowledge, this is the first in-depth study comparing researchers’ tweeting activity and behavior with scientific publication output in terms of quantity, content and impact.

Astrophysicists on Twitter: An in-depth analysis of tweeting and scientific publication behavior

Climate change on Twitter: topics, communities and conversations about the 2013 IPCC report

Abstract

In September 2013 the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change published its Working Group 1 report, the first comprehensive assessment of physical climate science in six years, constituting a critical event in the societal debate about climate change. This paper analyses the nature of this debate in one public forum: Twitter. Using statistical methods, tweets were analyzed to discover the hashtags used when people tweeted about the IPCC report, and how Twitter users formed communities around their conversational connections. In short, the paper presents the topics and tweeters at this particular moment in the climate debate. 
The most used hashtags related to themes of science, geographical location and social issues connected to climate change. Particularly noteworthy were tweets connected to Australian politics, US politics, geoengineering and fracking. Three communities of Twitter users were identified. Researcher coding of Twitter users showed how these varied according to geographical location and whether users were supportive, unsupportive or neutral in their tweets about the IPCC. Overall, users were most likely to converse with users holding similar views. However, qualitative analysis suggested the emergence of a community of Twitter users, predominantly based in the UK, where greater interaction between contrasting views took place. This analysis also illustrated the presence of a campaign by the non-governmental organization Avaaz, aimed at increasing media coverage of the IPCC report.

Disciplinary Differences in Twitter Scholarly Communication

Abstract 

This paper investigates disciplinary differences in how researchers use the microblogging site Twitter. Tweets from selected researchers in ten disciplines (astrophysics, biochemistry, digital humanities, economics, history of science, cheminformatics, cognitive science, drug discovery, social network analysis, and sociology) were collected and analyzed both statistically and qualitatively. The researchers tended to share more links and retweet more than the average Twitter users in earlier research and there were clear disciplinary differences in how they used Twitter. Biochemists retweeted substantially more than researchers in the other disciplines. Researchers in digital humanities and cognitive science used Twitter more for conversations, while researchers in economics shared the most links. Finally, whilst researchers in biochemistry, astrophysics, cheminformatics and digital humanities seemed to use Twitter for scholarly communication, scientific use of Twitter in economics, sociology and history of science appeared to be marginal.
