9:00 a.m.-5:00 p.m.

Research on metrics has been growing significantly over the last two decades. The field has recently expanded beyond traditional research products, such as articles and citations, to include web-based products, such as blogs, tweets and other social media, so-called altmetrics. These social media are changing some of the ways research is being disseminated and, in turn, influences the field of metrics.

Metrics research continues to account for a large proportion of the literature published in core LIS journals. But now there is an increasing presence of metrics literature in general science and medical journals. With the swelling interest in and importance of metrics research, this full-day workshop will tap into the community of established and budding researchers focusing on such topics as new indicators and methods, e.g., altmetrics and social media metrics; application of indicators; tool development; metrics in a library and institutional setting; and open access, open science and metrics.
