Workshop sponsored by ASIS&T SIG/MET
ASIS&T 2017 Annual Meeting<https://www.asist.org/events/annual-meeting/annual-meeting-2017/>
Friday, October 27, 2017, 9:00am–5:00pm at the Hyatt Regency, Arlington, VA

The ASIS&T Special Interest Group for Metrics (SIG/MET) invites contributions to the METRICS 2017 workshop, which will be held in Washington D.C. (Crystal City, Virginia) 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 practitioners.

We invite abstracts related, but not limited to:

  *   New indicators and methods
  *   Applications of indicators
  *   Theories of the publication process, citations, and social media in scholarly communication
  *   Metrics in a library setting
  *   Open access, open science, and metrics
  *   Tool development
  *   Limitations, misuses, and adverse effects of metrics
  *   Interdisciplinarity
  *   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 using APA style. 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: https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=sigmet2017

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

This year we are proud to announce sponsorships by Elsevier (https://www.elsevier.com/), Altmetric.com (www.altmetric.com<http://www.altmetric.com/>), and Figshare (https://figshare.com/).

Altmetric.com and Figshare have kindly offered to award cash prize for the best overall paper. The best paper will be selected by a committee from all accepted (non-student) workshop papers regardless of their topic.

Elsevier has kindly offered to award a cash prize for the best student papers. 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.

NOTE: If you qualify and you want to be eligible for the student paper award, please add the “STUDENTPAPER” keyword to your EasyChair submission form in the KEYWORDS form field.

The winners of both awards will be decided by a double-blind peer review process from the accepted submissions that are to be presented in Washington D.C. The awards will be decided before presentations take place, but the authors must present at the workshop to qualify.

Please submit as a PDF to: https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=sigmet2017
