CfP: Challenges of Social Media Data for Bibliometrics. Special Track at STI 
Conference 2018. Deadline April 1.

Dear colleagues,

as part of the STI Conference 2018 (http://sti2018.cwts.nl) we will be 
organizing a special track on the "Challenges of Social Media Data for 
Bibliometrics" (#sti18challenge).

This specialized track focuses on the ongoing challenges for using data from 
social media platforms and from third party aggregators as sources for research 
metrics and scientometric indicators. These challenges include but are not 
limited to:

--> platform-based restrictions in accessing social media data and potential 
biases resulting from limited access (also: biases introduced by data 

--> black boxes, hidden algorithms, and lack of information about collection 
processes and context affecting the use of social media data and data 

-->lack of understanding of user activities (e.g. motivations to retweet, like, 
share) and user groups in academic contexts

-->incomplete data (e.g. due to missing DOIs or identifiers not tracked by 
aggregators) and noise (e.g.due to bot-activity)

We invite the following types of submissions:

a) original research studying the quality of social media data and data 
aggregators for measuring scholarly communication

b) short (hands-on) introductions and best practices for using data from one or 
more specific social media platforms or aggregators.

Please submit your work as short papers (max 3,000 words) until April 1, 2018. 
See http://sti2018.cwts.nl/submissions for templates, EasyChair access and 
additional submission information.

Looking forward to your submissions

Katrin Weller, Astrid Orth, Isabella Peters
