Summary

The aim of this SIG/MET-sponsored panel is to discuss major informetric topics including the impact factor, the h-index, sources of citation data, the Eigenfactor, the making and use of base maps of science, application of informetrics (e.g., for retrieval purposes), altmetrics, and future perspectives on bibliometrics. The panel especially addresses attendees who want to expand their knowledge in this area or got in touch with it only recently.
