Hi, I'm Kim Holmberg

researcher, speaker, teacher, amateur golfer and gardener, and overall a nice guy

"OH WHAT A TANGLED WEB WE WEAVE..."

I'm a senior researcher at the Research Unit for the Sociology of Education (RUSE) at the University of Turku. My research interests include altmetrics, webometrics, bibliometrics, scholarly communication in digital environments, social network analysis, and to study various other phenomena on the web in general and in social media in particular, mainly using quantitative methods.

Currently I'm collaborating on projects studying online conversations about climate change and how climate science is shared in social media, mapping scholarly communication in social media and investigating how researchers use Twitter and other social media, investigating meaning and validity of altmetrics, and studying Twitter conversations about diabetes.

DISCIPLINARY DIFFERENCES IN TWITTER SCHOLARLY COMMUNICATION

This paper investigates disciplinary differences in how researchers use the microblogging site Twitter. Tweets from selected researchers in ten disciplines (astrophysics, biochemistry, digital humanities, economics, history of science, cheminformatics, cognitive science, drug discovery, social network analysis, and sociology) were collected and analyzed both statistically and qualitatively. The researchers tended to share more links and retweet more than the average Read more about DISCIPLINARY DIFFERENCES IN TWITTER SCHOLARLY COMMUNICATION[…]

CLIMATE CHANGE ON TWITTER: TOPICS, COMMUNITIES AND CONVERSATIONS ABOUT THE 2013 IPCC REPORT

In September 2013 the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change published its Working Group 1 report, the first comprehensive assessment of physical climate science in six years, constituting a critical event in the societal debate about climate change. This paper analyses the nature of this debate in one public forum: Twitter. Using statistical methods, tweets were Read more about CLIMATE CHANGE ON TWITTER: TOPICS, COMMUNITIES AND CONVERSATIONS ABOUT THE 2013 IPCC REPORT[…]

THE CONCEPTUAL LANDSCAPE OF ISCHOOLS: EXAMINING CURRENT RESEARCH INTERESTS OF FACULTY MEMBERS

Introduction. This study describes the intellectual landscape of iSchools and examines how the various iSchools map on to these research areas. Method. The primary focus of the data collection process was on faculty members’ current research interests as described by the individuals themselves. A co-word analysis of all iSchool faculty members’ research interests was used Read more about THE CONCEPTUAL LANDSCAPE OF ISCHOOLS: EXAMINING CURRENT RESEARCH INTERESTS OF FACULTY MEMBERS[…]

ASTROPHYSICISTS ON TWITTER: AN IN-DEPTH ANALYSIS OF TWEETING AND SCIENTIFIC PUBLICATION BEHAVIOR

Purpose – The purpose of this paper is to analyze the tweeting behavior of 37 astrophysicists on Twitter and compares their tweeting behavior with their publication behavior and citation impact to show whether they tweet research-related topics or not. Design/methodology/approach – Astrophysicists on Twitter are selected to compare their tweets with their publications from Web of Science.

GENDER DIFFERENCES IN THE CLIMATE CHANGE COMMUNICATION ON TWITTER

We present a study about gender differences in the climate change communication on Twitter and in the use of affordances on Twitter. Our dataset consists of about 250,000 tweets and retweets for which the authors’ gender was identified. While content of tweets and hashtags used were analyzed for common topics and specific contexts, the usernames that Read more about GENDER DIFFERENCES IN THE CLIMATE CHANGE COMMUNICATION ON TWITTER[…]

DRIVERS OF HIGHER EDUCATION INSTITUTIONS’ VISIBILITY: A STUDY OF UK HEIS SOCIAL MEDIA USE VS. ORGANIZATIONAL CHARACTERISTICS

Social media is increasingly used in higher education settings by researchers, students and institutions. Whether it is researchers conversing with other researchers, or universities seeking to communicate to a wider audience, social media platforms serve as a tools for users to communicate and increase visibility. Scholarly communication in social media and investigations about social media Read more about DRIVERS OF HIGHER EDUCATION INSTITUTIONS’ VISIBILITY: A STUDY OF UK HEIS SOCIAL MEDIA USE VS.

Helsinki – Hong Kong – Wuhan

When I was traveling towards Wuhan, China, to attend ISSI 2017 conference things didn’t exactly go smoothly. When I checked in on my first flight I could only get the boarding card for the first leg of my journey; from Helsinki to Hong Kong. This has happened before, so I wasn’t worried. I knew that Read more about Helsinki – Hong Kong – Wuhan[…]

Yet another blog…

I’ve started many blogs before and deleted equally many. None of my earlier personal blogs have survived to this day, except some course blogs that I’ve opened for a specific course and that have since then become part of the structure of the forgotten web. I have full confidence (as I’ve always had with every Read more about Yet another blog…[…]

In the jungle

While on teacher exchange at the University of Namibia in Windhoek, Namibia, I went on a safari to Etosha, the enormous nature reserve in the north of Namibia. Before I flew to Windhoek I found a tour company online; the Wild Dog and Crazy Kudu Safaris. The company sounded like a lot of fun, so Read more about In the jungle[…]

Where are we?

This is a short story that happened about ten years ago, but that still makes me smile whenever I come to think about it. About ten years ago I was on my way back home from a conference in the US and had a connecting flight at Kastrup Airport (which is one of my favorite Read more about Where are we?[…]
