Students! Are you tired of preparing papers which immediately migrate into 

professors’ files never to been seen again? 


Recover your papers and send your most promising to the 2016 

ASIST SIG/MET Student paper contest! 

Deadline: August 25, 2016




SIG/MET (http://www.asis.org/SIG/SIGMET) seeks to encourage the development
and networking opportunities of all those 

interested in the measurement of information. This contest is intended to
foster student growth and promote the generation of 

new ideas and research in metric-related topics, including bibliometrics,
scientometrics, informetrics, and altmetrics. 




The first author of contest submissions must be a full-time student at the
time of submission, irrespective of ASIS&T or SIG/

MET membership. SIG/MET reserves the right to request proof of enrollment.
Submissions should not be published work, 




Papers should discuss theories, methods, policies, case studies, etc. on
aspects of the measurement of information production 

and use. Topics could include: 

· Metric-Related Theory 

· Methods and new techniques 

· Citation and co-citation analysis 

· Indicators 

· Information visualization 

· Research policy 

· Productivity 

· Journals, databases and electronic publications 

· Collaboration/Co-authorship 

· Patent analysis 

· Knowledge and topic diffusion 

· Altmetrics




Papers will be reviewed by SIG/MET officers and advisors to the SIG/MET
workshop. At least one winner will be chosen. In 

the past, we have also given commendation to other particularly outstanding
papers. Selection criteria include the quality of the 

research, the presentation of the results, and the originality of the
research question. 




The winner will be awarded a one-year membership to ASIS&T and a cash prize.
Authors of highly rated papers will be invited 

to present their research under their own expense at the SIG/MET workshop
held during the 2016 Annual ASIS&T Meeting 

(https://www.asist.org/events/annual-meeting/annual-meeting-2016) in
Copenhagen, Denmark. 




Submissions can be of any length and format, but should ideally reflect
typical standards of a journal article (i.e., approxi-

mately 6,000 words and in an appropriate citation style for the social
sciences) and be prepared in English.
