Workshop sponsored by ASIS&T SIG/MET

ASIS&T 2016 Annual Meeting

Friday, October 14th, 2016, 9:00am–5:00pm at the Crowne Plaza Copenhagen



The ASIS&T Special Interest Group for Metrics (SIG/MET) invites
contributions to the METRICS 2016 workshop, which will be held in Copenhagen
prior to the ASIS&T Annual Meeting in October.

The workshop will provide an opportunity to present and discuss
metrics-related research, including the latest theories, methods, case
studies, and tools relevant to the fields of informetrics, scientometrics,
bibliometrics, altmetrics, as well as information retrieval. The workshop
continues the successful SIG/MET workshop series held annually since 2011
and is envisioned as a combination of short presentations, posters, and open
discussions among experienced researchers, young academics, and


We invite abstracts related, but not limited to:


·         Theoretical and empirical approaches related to metrics in
scholarly communication

·         New indicators and methods in informetrics, scientometrics,
bibliometrics, and altmetrics

·         Technological developments of tools and platforms as part of the
research infrastructure

·         Metrics in a library, archive, and other institutional setting

·         Open access, open science, and metrics

·         Impact of indicators (evaluation, information retrieval, research
management, etc.)

·         Limitations, misuses, and adverse effects of metrics

·         Visualizations of scholarly impact measures and analyses


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 and, thus, encompasses
not only bibliometrics and scientometrics, but informetrics in a larger
sense including measurement of the (social) Web and the Internet,
applications running on these platforms, and metrics related to network
analysis, visualization, and scholarly communication.  


Submissions should be in the form of a two-page extended abstract.
Conceptual, empirical, and works-in-progress will be accepted for
submission. Where appropriate, up to three figures/tables can be provided.


Two types of submissions will be accepted: posters and presentations. Please
indicate the type of submission in bold at the beginning of your submission.
The requirements for both formats are the same.

Posters will provide scholars with a format for presenting works-in-progress
and works that are best presented visually. Every poster will be introduced
in a poster pitch-format.


The presentations will be an opportunity for researchers and professionals
to present and discuss research that is more fully developed.

The abstracts of accepted papers and posters, as well as the presentation
slides, will be published on figshare ( <http://figshare.com/>
http://figshare.com). Figshare allocates DOIs to uploaded content and each
publication will be linked from the SIG/MET website to enhance visibility
and retrievability of presented research.


Please submit as a PDF to:


Each submission will be reviewed and brief feedback will be given in
narrative format.



This year Altmetric.com ( <http://www.altmetric.com/> www.altmetric.com) and
Digital Science ( <http://www.digital-science.com> www.digital-science.com)
have kindly offered to award a cash prize for the best paper. The best paper
will be selected by a committee from all accepted workshop papers regardless
of their topic.


Outstanding research papers from students will be awarded in a Student Paper
Contest. The first author of the paper entered into this contest must be a
full-time student at the time of submission, irrespective of ASIS&T or
SIG/MET membership. 

Please submit to <https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=sigmetspc2015>


The winners of both awards will be selected by the SIG/MET officers from the
accepted submissions presented in Copenhagen.
