American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS)

This publisher publishes 3 respected peer-reviewed journals:
1. Science – the premier global science weekly with 5-year Impact Factor 33.6
2. Science Signalling – the leading journal of cell signalling and regulatory biology
3. Science Translational Medicine – integrating medicine, engineering and science to promote human health

Abstract : Scientific researchers face an exciting, and possibly surprising array of new methods to manipulate and manage the impacts of their research. These tools include Altmetrics – usage analysis of their research including citations, social media and full-text downloads; Big Data - where by the researcher utilizes  big data sets  to handle complex information; Open Access – OA  journals offer the opportunity for  wider dissemination of  researchers’ scientific  findings; and Text Mining where tailored text “definitions” of research terms may derive more high quality information to enhance the use of the research by others. With these tools, research will be translated more quickly into tangible results.
