Many educators and researchers already understand the importance of visual aids (e.g. graphs, charts, etc). But, peer-reviewed research also concludes that “using visuals aids as a teaching method stimulates thinking and improves the learning environment in a classroom.” In addition, “effective use of visual aids substitutes monotonous learning environments.”

Whether in a classroom or in the library, visual representations of data and information make concepts easier to digest. That’s why Engineering Village continues to invest in new ways to represent data in easily consumable formats.

Engineering Village Adds PlumX Metrics

on Tue, 02/06/2018 - 16:03

PlumX Metrics provide insights into the ways people interact with individual pieces of research output in the online environment. The metrics can be used to determine the reach or impact of a document when evaluating research articles.  Examples include, when research is mentioned in the news or is tweeted about online. Collectively known as PlumX Metrics, these metrics are divided into five categories to help make sense of the huge amounts of data and to enable analysis.  Metrics are categorized into 5 separate areas:

  • Usage – A way to signal if anyone is reading the article or otherwise

Introducing IEEE Standards in Compendex on Engineering Village

on Mon, 01/22/2018 - 15:27

Oil rigs. Batteries. Airplanes. These modern marvels all require the use of technical standards, a cornerstone of engineering. But, standards aren’t the only “cornerstones” of engineering research, design & development, and manufacturing. While standards will tell you “what” to adhere to, “how to get there” is a different story.

Engineers and researchers need a complete suite of validated information to innovate, build, and maintain. That information is usually found in books, journals, conference proceeding, and more…all of which is indexed in Compendex on Engineering Village.
