Resumen


Se estudia la presencia, actividad, visibilidad e interdisciplinaridad de 349 profesoras y profesores de Documentación en los medios sociales, para comprobar si existen diferencias entre los dos conjuntos. Las plataformas estudiadas incluyen ResearchGate (RG), Google Scholar Citations (GSC), y Twitter, y la población analizada corresponde al profesorado de 13 universidades españolas que ofertan formación en Biblioteconomía y Documentación. Los datos se recogieron entre abril y junio de 2018. Para las cuatro dimensiones de estudio se analizaron diferentes variables, incluyendo, entre otros, el número de documentos subidos a RG y el número de tweets, respuestas y retweets en Twitter para la actividad, y el porcentaje de documentos en acceso abierto y de documentos diferentes a los géneros tradicionales en RG y el número de seguidores y seguidoras por perfil en Twitter para la visibilidad. Los resultados apuntan a diferencias entre los dos colectivos, especialmente acentuadas en términos de visibilidad.
