Workshop on Informetric and Scientometric Research
October 26, 2012: 9a.m.-5p.m.
The ASIS&T Special Interest Group for Metrics (SIG/MET) will host a workshop on Friday, October 26, 2012 preceding the ASIS&T Annual Meeting in Baltimore. This workshop will provide an opportunity for presentations and in-depth conversations on metric-related issues, including the latest theories, approaches, applications, innovations, and tools. Submissions in any area of metrics research will be accepted for review. The workshop is envisioned as a combination of short presentations and open discussion.
SIG/MET is the Special Interest Group for the measurement of information production and use. It encourages the development and networking of all those interested in the measurement of information. It encompasses not only bibliometrics, scientometrics, informetrics and webometrics , but also measurement of the Web and the Internet, applications running on these platforms, and metrics related to network analysis, visualization, and scholarly communication.
The workshop is endorsed by the International Society for Scientometrics and Informetrics (ISSI) and sponsored by Elsevier.
