UK Serials Group  are pleased to announce that booking is now open for our
seminar:

 

Measure for Measure, or, Much Ado about Nothing:

Measuring the quality and value of online journals

 

To be held on Thursday 14 June 2007

at

Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists, London

 

This highly topical seminar brings together a range of eminent speakers to
explore the ways in which the quality and value of online journals and their
published output can be assessed, from the latest developments in
long-standing citation-based assessment methods to newer technologies which
have yet to be developed into reliable standards, including usage-based
measures and linking metrics.  Our experts will also consider the wider
environment in which such measurements take place, in terms of the influence
of quality measures on author and reader behaviour, the differing
perceptions of value between disciplines, and the development of national
quality initiatives such as the UK's Research Assessment Exercise.

 

The seminar will be of keen interest to librarians, publishers and all those
with a stake in understanding the multi-faceted topic of determining the
quality of journals.
