The Publisher/Vendor Relations Discussion Group of the ACRL Science & Technology Section invites you to join us at the 2018 ALA Midwinter Meeting in Denver for:
Measuring Research Impact: What Really Counts?
Sunday February 11th, 8:30am-10:00am, Denver Convention and Exhibition Center, Room 303
In recent years there has been a proliferation in the ways of research impact can be measured. Traditional metrics such as citation counts and journal impact factors continue to fulfill an important measurement role but do not always tell the whole story. A variety of alternative metrics have added new ways of assessing the impact of a researcher’s work but these may not always be well understood or appropriately valued. Please join us for an exploration and lively discussion of the roles libraries and librarians can play in assessing research impact in an increasingly competitive world.
Panelists: Ann Beynon, Manager, Solution Specialists, North America, Clarivate Analytics Sara Rouhi, Director of Engagement and Advocacy, Altmetric & Dimensions, Altmetric.com Emily C. Wild, Librarian (Physical Scientist), U.S. Geological Survey, Denver Library
