ASIST SIG/MET is organizing a webinar on visualization.
TITLE: Preparing to Incorporate Visualizations into a *metrics Research
Information Visualization has enormous potential for researchers.
Visualizations can be employed within a research agenda both as an
exploratory analysis tool to better understand trends in complex data
sets (e.g., visual analytics) and also as a way of communicating the
results of analyses to stakeholders and other members of the research
community. Determining the most appropriate visualization techniques
and incorporating those techniques into a research project, however, can
be daunting for novice visualizers.
This webinar will approach Information Visualization from the
perspective of researchers interested in incorporating visualizations
into a research project within the fields of Bibliometrics, Citation
Analysis, Scientometrics, Informetrics, Webometrics, etc. The focus
will be on developing an appropriate (novice) strategy for undertaking
*metrics research-based visualizations.
The webinar will begin by introducing attendees to techniques for
establishing the most likely and appropriate candidate data sources for
visualization, based both on a study's research questions and on the
needs of potential audiences/stakeholders for the visualization. The
webinar will then address how to structure the development of the
visualizations and will recommend techniques and software tools that can
be used for various types of visualizations and data sources.
Angela Zoss is a doctoral candidate at the Indiana University School of
Library and Information Science. Over the course of her degree she has
worked as a Research Assistant for the Cyberinfrastructure for Network
Science Center, directed by Dr. Katy Börner, and has she attended and
presented visualization research at a variety of domestic and
international workshops and conferences. She currently works as an
Adjunct Instructor for SLIS, teaching a course on Information
Visualization that synthesizes critical, empirical, and practical
approaches to the subject. Her research focuses on Scientometric
visualizations of scholarly communication and, more generally, the
development of a more nuanced understanding of how various audiences
interact with information visualizations. She will assume the role of
Data Visualization Coordinator at Duke University starting in the summer
DATE AND TIME:
March, 29th, 1:00pm - 2:00pm ET
$10 members and $20 nonmembers.
