In order to improve the quality of systematic researches, various tools have been developed by well-known scientific institutes sporadically. Dr. Nader Ale Ebrahim has collected these sporadic tools under one roof in a collection named “Research Tool Box”. The toolbox contains over 720 tools so far, classified in 4 main categories: Literature-review, Writing a paper, Targeting suitable journals, as well as Enhancing visibility and impact factor.

Altmetrics - Research Impact, Citation Analysis & Altmetrics
created and maintain a cluster of servers that watch social media
sites, newspapers and magazines for any mentions of scholarly articles.
mid January 2012 we were tracking approximately three thousand unique
papers a day. We have broad coverage and are getting better every month -
we can track articles from hundreds of different publishers, preprint
databases and institutional repositories. If somebody has recently
tweeted, blogged or posted a public link to your paper then we quite
possibly know about it.
We clean up the data, disambiguate articles and give each one an Altmetric score..."
one can read everything. We rely on filters to make sense of the
scholarly literature, but the narrow, traditional filters are being
swamped. However, the growth of new, online scholarly tools allows us to
make new filters; these altmetrics reflect the broad, rapid impact of
scholarship in this burgeoning ecosystem. We call for more tools and
research based on altmetrics." ... "With altmetrics, we can
crowdsource peer-review. Instead of waiting months for two opinions, an
article’s impact might be assessed by thousands of conversations and
bookmarks in a week."
F1000 core database is updated daily and includes over 100,000
evaluations of the top published articles in biology and medicine.
Articles are selected, scored, and evaluated by our Faculty of over
10,000 expert scientists and clinical researchers who cover over 3,000
group is for hackers, scientists, librarians, policy makers and
publishers interested in new ways to measure scholarly impact.
altmetrics go beyond citation-based metrics and simple usage factors and
look at the opportunities the Web offers to rethink the notion of
"impact" and its measurement."
aim of this group is to discuss new approaches to the assessment of
scholarly impact based on new metrics. altmetrics go beyond traditional
citation-based indicators as well as raw usage factors (such as
downloads or click-through rates) in that they focus on readership,
diffusion and reuse indicators that can be tracked via blogs, social
media, peer production systems, collaborative annotation tools
(including social bookmarking and reference management services)."
offers researchers a way of monitoring all types of feedback about
their scientific work, as well as allows everyone to easily review the
work of others, in a fully open and transparent environment.
"Plum is building the next generation of research metrics for scholarly research.
Metrics are captured and correlated at the group / collection level (e.g., lab, department, museum, journal, etc.)
We categorize metrics into 5 separate types: Usage, Captures, Mentions, Social Media, and Citations. Examples of each type are: *Usage - Downloads, views, book holdings, ILL, document delivery *Captures - Favorites, bookmarks, saves, readers, groups, watchers *Mentions - blog posts, news stories, Wikipedia articles, comments, reviews *Social media - Tweets, +1's, likes, shares, ratings *Citations - PubMed, Scopus, patents "
