Cancellation 2nd Scientific ReAttach Conference 2020

Dear colleagues,

We are sorry to inform you that we have decided to cancel the 2nd Scientific ReAttach Conference on May 29th-May 30th, due to the Coronavirus outbreak.
We will refund all conference tickets in the upcoming weeks.

Thank you for your enthusiasm for ReAttach and the overwhelming response and the warm welcome of the Macedonian Scientific Society of Autism as co-host of this event.

We especially thank all our invited presenters for their abstract submission. We intend to continue our international friendship. Of course, we will keep you informed about their papers that are coming up, future training, and events.

We would also like to draw your attention to our peer-reviewed academic journal that was founded under the inspiring leadership of Prof. Dr. Vladimir Trajkovski: Journal for ReAttach Therapy and Developmental Diversities. JRTDD is an open-access journal with a broad scope and a fantastic international editorial board. You can find it at https://jrtdd.com!

Yours sincerely,

ReAttach Therapy International Foundation
Drs. Paula Weerkamp-Bartholomeus,  President

Abstract

Introduction: Impact is a key concept in all aspects of research and development activity. The extent to which it is effectively identified can affect research activity at all levels: from whether an individual project is funded, to the funding granted to – and the reputations of – entire institutions. Funding for research and other activity supporting education and social inclusion is limited and highly contested. It is therefore imperative that impact is effectively identified.

Objective: The Erasmus+ National Agencies’ Impact+ tool was developed to help projects identify impact in four domains: systemic impact, impact regarding target groups, impact to partner organisations and impact to project personnel. This paper discusses this tool’s adaptation to identify impact in a three-year transnational project where a partnership of universities, schools, non-governmental organisations and small enterprises developed, provided and evaluated parent education in autism in three south-east European countries.

Method: A semi-structured questionnaire was completed by personnel from partner organisations within the project (n=16). Findings regarding the four domains of impact are presented, and differences of response within the partnership are discussed.

Conclusion: It is suggested that this tool is helpful in supporting a broader conceptualisation of impact, and has wider utility.

 

Key words: research impact, research evaluation, Erasmus+, Impact+

JRTDD indexed in MIAR

Dear colleagues,

With great pleasure we announced that JRTDD is already indexed into MIAR.

What is MIAR?

MIAR collects data for the identification and the analysis of scientific journals. If you enter an ISSN in the search box, the system will check in which databases, those referred to in the matrix, the journal is indexed. That is regardless of whether the journal is included with a full description in MIAR or not. The system will also calculates an index called the ICDS. If the journal is not included in MIAR, the value of the Survival Index will not be given.

MIAR is a COLLABORATIVE tool. Publishers, authors and readers can suggest new journals, report errors, supply news, or share data on social networks. Publishers can also include value-added information about their journals provided that it can be validated against a public source in the Internet.

MIAR has an INTEGRATED approach. Apart from showing the visibility of journals in abstracting and indexing databases, MIAR also provides information about journals from other evaluation tools, such as the Sello de Calidad FECYT, Scimago Journal Rank, or CARHUS+, as well as their open access policies as represented by the ROMEO colour.

MIAR is a TRANSPARENT and UP-TO-DATE resource. Information is always processed using data available from public sources. It can be also directly compared with the original source material. Our software agents check the sources every 15 days in order to keep MIAR updated with the latest changes or additions. The algorithm for ICDS is public and is displayed in each record for each journal.

Macedonian Scientific Society for Autism becomes co-publisher of JRTDD

Dear readers,

With great pleasure I want to inform you that Macedonian Scientific Society for Autism (MSSA) becomes co-publisher of JRTDD together with ReAttach International Foundation from the Netherlands. This is a great honor for the members of MSSA and validation of their 20 anniversary. Together these two organizations will work much more harder to increase the quality and visibility of the journal.

JRTDD indexed in Dimensions

Dear colleagues,

I want to announce that our journal JRTDD is already indexed in Dimensions.

That fresh approach extended to the project team. Digital Science and our portfolio companies ReadCube, Altmetric, Figshare, Symplectic, Digital Science Consultancy and ÜberResearch, didn’t build Dimensions alone. We worked closely with the research community throughout the project, a relationship that continues to drive new developments today.
