Responsible use of Bibliometrics in Practice
The next LIS-Bibliometrics event will focus on responsible metrics and aims to provide a forum for practitioners to hear, share, discuss and debate how responsible metrics can be introduced, developed and used.
The event will include presentations from Euan Adie, Founder of Altmetric; Professor David Price, former Chair of the Forum for Responsible Metrics and Chair of REF Panel B; and Jenni Stergiou from the University of Leeds, who will talk about using Snowball metrics in practice. In the afternoon there will be presentations from practitioners, discussion groups and lightning talks.
