Several new and emerging standards efforts will be discussed, including Altmetrics.

NISO Alternative Assessment Metrics (Altmetrics) Initiative:

Several new and emerging standards efforts will be discussed, including Altmetrics.

NISO Alternative Assessment Metrics (Altmetrics) Initiative:

In June 2013, NISO was awarded a Sloan Foundation grant to explore standards and/or best practices related to a new suite of potential assessment metrics such as social media references and potential assessment criteria for non-traditional research outputs such as data sets. In Phase 1 of the project, 3 in-person meetings as well as 30 in-person interviews were held October 2013-January 2014 and resulted in a June 6, 2014 white paper outlining a list of potential action items, followed by a community input survey in August 2014. As part of Phase 2, NISO’s Business Information Topic Committee approved a work item to advance action items through the creation of NISO working groups to develop standards covering these areas. Nettie Lagace, Associate Director for Programs at NISO, will provide us with an overview and update on this initiative.

Proposal for Exchanging Serial Content (PESC):

This project is creating a NISO Recommended Practice to describe a packaging specification to be used for exchange and archiving of serial publications. A draft was available for public comment through December 5, 2014. The PESC Working Group is currently reviewing the comments in order to develop a recommendation for protocols for defining the rules to be used to create a package of serial content. Our speakers will be Amy Kirchhoff, Archive Service Product Manager, ITHAKA/JSTOR/Portico, and Marti Heyman, Executive Director, Metadata Standards and Services, Global Product Technology, Cengage Learning.

Improving Article Delivery Through Better Link Resolution: Updates on IOTA and KBART

To begin the forum, Nettie Lagace (Associate Director for Programs, National Information Standards Organization) will provide a brief NISO update. The session program will then focus in detail on two of NISO’s Recommended Practices, IOTA and KBART.

Improving Article Delivery Through Better Link Resolution: Updates on IOTA and KBART

To begin the forum, Nettie Lagace (Associate Director for Programs, National Information Standards Organization) will provide a brief NISO update. The session program will then focus in detail on two of NISO’s Recommended Practices, IOTA and KBART.

NISO’s IOTA (Improving OpenURLs Through Analytics) project was a two year quantitative study of OpenURL link resolution rates across multiple link resolver products. Based on the conclusions of this study, the IOTA working group in 2013 published a Recommended Practice document containing a methodology for ensuring increased quality control in OpenURL link resolvers. Aron Wolf, software developer from ProQuest, will speak about ProQuest’s current work to put these recommended practices into action, as well as ideas for future efforts in increased quality assurance for OpenURL link resolvers.

KBART, or Knowledge Bases and Related Tools, is a NISO Recommended Practice that has been available to improve data communication in library link resolvers since 2008. Earlier this year, the "Phase I" Recommended Practice was expanded to a Phase II publication that includes additional support for monographs, conference proceedings, consortial data lists and further definitions on communication of open access material. Nettie Lagace will explain the updates to KBART and detail future plans for its upkeep and promotion.
