Dear colleagues,

Nature has published "The Leiden Manifesto for Research Metrics", a
compilation of ten principles for best practices of research metrics led by
Prof. Diana Hicks at Georgia Tech led in collaboration with Paul Wouters,
Ludo Waltman, Sarah de Rijcke and myself (Ismael Rafols).


The principles of the manifesto were formulated on the basis of input from
the scientometric community during a  special session on the development of
good practices for metrics use at the STI/ENID conference in Leiden
(September 2014). See:

Further discussions on ways to implement these or related principles so as
to improve the use of research metrics are planned for the ISSI conference
this June (http://issi2015.org) and the Atlanta Science and Innovation
Policy Conference in September (http://www.atlantaconference.org/).
