Abstract:   (689 Views)
Aims: Altmetrics is a new indicator for evaluation of academic research, which evaluates the findings of research published in social networks. The aim of this study was to investigate the status of the outputs of researchers in the field of "Quran and Health" in ResearchGate.
Instruments & Methods: This is a cross-sectional descriptive study conducted using citation analysis and scientometrics methodology. The population consisted of 230 papers retrieved from Scopus by 2018. The data were analyzed by Excel 2016 and SPSS 21 software.
Findings: With 67 articles, Iran had the highest number of articles in the field of Quran and Health. The United States of America, Saudi Arabia, Malaysia, and Pakistan won the next places. The articles' presence rate on the ResearchGate was 86.1%. There was a statistically significant correlation between Scopus citation rate and ResearchGate indicators (readings and citation rates; p<0.01).
Conclusion: By sharing research findings in social networks, researchers in the field of "Quran and Health" can contribute in increasing the citation rate to the papers, and, to increase the scientific communication with other researchers, as well.
Keywords: Research, Social Media, Health, Social Networking
