Apologies for cross-posting.

The Special Interest Group for the measurement of information
production and use ( of the American
Society for Information Science & Technology (ASIS&T) is pleased to
announce the results of its 2012 student paper contest.

The judging committee had a difficult task of selecting the winners
due to the high quality of all the submitted papers. Two papers share
the first place:

Research synthesis: Overview of an intersection with ILS, by Laura Sheble
The determinants of research citation impact in Nanoscience and
Nanotechnology, by Fereshteh Didegah

This year’s runner-up paper is:
Visualizing an Information Society: A Network-Based Perspective of
Authors and Editors over 30 years in the Context of a Scholarly
Journal, by Christopher Mascaro

All three authors will be awarded cash prizes, will get a one-year
membership to ASIS&T, and are invited to present their papers at the
SIGMET workshop to be held on October 26, 2012, preceding this year’s
ASIS&T annual meeting in Baltimore, MD. The registration fees for the
workshop for all three students will be covered by Elsevier.

We would like to thank all the students who participated in this
year’s contest and congratulate the winners.

Best Regards,
Chaoqun Ni, Chair of Student Paper Contest, SIGMET, on behalf of the
judging committee.
