Tableau Public is a free version of Tableau business intelligence / visual analytics software, which allows anyone to explore and present any quantitative information in compelling, interactive visualizations. In this hands-on session you will work with different prepared datasets to create online interactive bar graphs, scatterplots, thematic maps and much more, which can be linked to or embedded in blogs or on web sites.
This workshop will expand on the basic functionality covered in the introductory session to include tips on connecting to live data sources, using GIS shapefiles for custom maps, joining and blending multiple data sources, creating Calculated Fields, restructuring and reformatting your data within Tableau Public, and more! Feel free to bring your own data project to work with in an informal Tableau user meetup following the session.
This workshop will present strategies for locating digital images required for scholarly publications, for identifying images with creative commons licenses that allow their scholarly, non-commercial use, and for the negotiating of terms for use of images without such licenses.
Brief introduction to Mendeley, a reference manager and academic social network, that allows you to organize your references across multiple devices, automatically generate bibliographies, and share references with collaborators online.
This session will review article searches, author profiles, and affiliation profiles. Learn how to perform cited reference searches, determine h-indexes, alt-metrics, and various analytics contained within Scopus. We will also discuss journal metrics and the ability to compare journals by subject area and metrics.
