Webinar: Beyond Publish or Perish: Alternative Metrics for Scholarship
Date: November 14, 2012
Time: 1:00 - 2:30 p.m. (Eastern time)
Event Webpage:


Increasingly, many aspects of scholarly communication-particularly
publication, research data, and peer review-undergo scrutiny by researchers
and scholars. Many of these practitioners are engaging in a variety of ways
with Alternative Metrics (#altmetrics in the Twitterverse). Alternative
Metrics take many forms but often focus on efforts to move beyond
proprietary bibliometrics and traditional forms of peer referencing in
assessing the quality and scholarly impact of published work. Join NISO for
a webinar that will present several emerging aspects of Alternative Metrics.
