Abstract

"In metrics we trust? Prospects & pitfalls of new research metrics" was a one-day workshop hosted by the University of Sussex, as part of the Independent Review of the Role of Metrics in Research Assessment. It took place on Tuesday 7 October 2014 at the Terrace Room, Conference Centre, Bramber House, University of Sussex, UK. This file contains a dataset of 1178 Tweets tagged with #HEFCEmetrics (case not sensitive). These Tweets were published publicly and tagged with #HEFCEmetrics between 02/10/2014 10:18 and 08/10/2014 00:27 GMT. This file was created and shared by Ernesto Priego (Centre for Information Science, City University London) with a Creative Commons- Attribution license (CC-BY) for academic research and educational use. The Tweets contained in this file were collected using Martin Hawksey’s TAGS 6.0. This file contains 3 sheets. Only users with at least 2 followers were included in the archive. Retweets have been included. An initial automatic deduplication was performed but data might require further deduplication. The Time column (D) has times in British Summer Time (BST). Please note that both research and experience show that the Twitter search API isn't 100% reliable. Large tweet volumes affect the search collection process. The API might "over-represent the more central users", not offering "an accurate picture of peripheral activity" (González-Bailón, Sandra, et al. 2012). It is not guaranteed this file contains each and every Tweet tagged with #HEFCEmetrics during the indicated period, and is shared for comparative and indicative educational and research purposes only. Please note the data in this file is likely to require further refining and even deduplication. The data is shared as is. The contents of each Tweet are responsibility of the original authors. This dataset is shared to encourage open research into scholarly activity on Twitter. If you use or refer to this data in any way please cite and link back using the citation information above.
