26 March 2019

Stacy Konkiel is the Director of Research Relations at Altmetric will be presenting a NFAIS Lunch and Learn webinar session on the 26th March 2019:

About the webinar:

In light of increased calls for the use of more “humane” research metrics in scholarly evaluation scenarios, how can content providers help? This talk will describe the many complexities and challenges of developing research metrics that reflect the diversity of humanities and social sciences research, and the varied roles that all stakeholders can play. In particular, we will discuss the approach championed by the HuMetrics HSS initiative, which promotes the idea of reverse engineering evaluation metrics based upon the practices and values that funders, institutions, professional societies, and individuals want to encourage in their disciplines.
