Taylor & Francis Library Roadshow in Italy

In June 2015 the Taylor & Francis team visited Rome and Turin to meet with librarians and deliver two roadshow events. These events provided a forum for discussion amongst librarians from different institutions, to share experiences and establish what challenges they face and how they see their roles evolving in the coming years.

The theme of these events was 'The Future of Librarianship' and interactive sessions throughout the day focussed on key topics including the emergence of open access publishing, eBooks and how to use social media to promote your library and engage with patrons.

Librarians attended from a variety of institutions including:
- American Academy in Rome
- Consiglio per la ricerca in agricoltura e l'analisi dell'economia agraria
- Ministero dei beni e dele attività culturali e del turismo
- Politecnico di Torino
- Università di Roma Sapienza
- Università di Torino

Many thanks goes out to our presenters:
Alessandra Zorzi, Direttore presso Biblioteca di Area Scientifica, Universita' Ca' Foscari Venezia
Dr Ezio Tarantino, SBS Sistema Bibliotecario Sapienza, Sapienza Università di Roma
Dr Elena Giglia, Information Specialist, University of Turin

Who's talking about research? Altmetric now on our journals platform

May sees the addition of Altmetric data to Taylor & Francis Online and Cogent OA, enhancing the article metrics currently available on both journal platforms. Added to all journal articles published since January 2012, Altmetric data will offer users a more complete picture of how people are engaging with research articles from Taylor & Francis Group, whether via traditional or social media, blogs or online reference managers.

Visitors to Taylor & Francis Online and Cogent OA will be able to click on the Altmetric badge and see the underlying mentions from newspapers, magazines, blogs, social media, and policy documents, as well as comments on post publication peer review sites. Altmetric track mentions of over 5,000 research articles a day, with one mention seen on average every two seconds.

As one of the first publishers to implement Altmetric's recently released updated details page design, Taylor & Francis Group users will benefit from its enhanced functionality and the addition of new features such as a summary tab. From the tab, users will be able to see bibliographic information, demographics for Twitter and Mendeley, and simplified 'score in context' information. Alerts are also more prominent, so authors (and anyone else) can keep track of every new mention of an article, via a daily email summary.

For all articles published after January 2012 data is viewable on Taylor & Francis Online and Cogent OA within each journal's table of contents, on individual article pages, and (on Taylor & Francis Online) for all authors within their My Authored Works account.
