Measuring Up - the Evolution of Impact Metrics

British Institute of Radiology, 36 Portland Place, London, W1B 1AT 

Monday 15 June 2009 (0930 - 1630)

Chair: Iain Craig, Wiley-Blackwell, Oxford, UK 

New metrics characterising different facets of scholarly communication are
emerging at an ever increasing rate. Analysis which was once only possible
by a select few groups of specialists is now considered a routine exercise,
and undertaken by publishers, funding agencies, libraries, consultants, even
national governments. 

This seminar will explore the evolution of Impact Metrics, examining
strengths and weaknesses and the implications in a society increasingly
focussed on measuring research quality. Moving forward from the Impact
Factor, it will cover usage (download) measurements from the MESUR project;
author level indices such as the Hirsch index and derivatives; and
eigenvector (PageRank) style metrics such as the EigenFactor and the SCImago
Journal Rank Indicator. 

In addition, the seminar will address the fundamental nature of, and
motivations driving, knowledge exchange and technology transfer; will
present research from the group responsible for the bibliometrics behind
HEFCE's Research Excellence Framework (REF) pilot; and will conclude with a
consideration of what future metrics might look like, particularly in those
areas not currently well served by existing ones.

Who should attend: publishers, journal editors, funding agencies,
librarians, and any academic due to be evaluated in the post RAE 2008
environment. 

Programme overview:

*	Metric research evaluation and publishing: citation, usage and
access - Chris Armbruster, Max Planck Society
*	Performance Metrics - Empirical results on Hirsch's h-index and its
variants - Lutz Bornmann, ETH Zurich
*	The UK Research Excellence Framework: bibliometric indicators and
university research assessment - Jonathan Adams, Evidence 
*	MESUR - Metrics from Scholarly Usage of Resources - Johan Bollen,
Los Alamos National Laboratory
*	Measuring Knowledge and Technology Transfer in the STM Environment -
Martin Meyer, University of Sussex
*	Metrics and reputation in a protean world - Geoff Bilder, CrossRef
*	Panel Discussion with all speakers taking part

The seminar will close with a networking reception (wine and nibbles)

Online Communities

What can publishing learn from other industries?

British Institute of Radiology, 36 Portland Place, London, W1B 1AT 

Tuesday 7 July 2009 (1000 - 1630)

Chair: Pam Sutherland, Oxford University Press 

Scholarly publishers can often be so concentrated on their own industry that
they don't look over the parapet to see what others are doing. ALPSP has
brought together experts to show what is being done beyond the scholarly
publishing horizon. They come from computer games, the online radio
industry, consumer and specialist magazines, general fiction publishing and
content providers for mobile devices. They demonstrate what is being
achieved in other niche markets in these difficult economic times.

Learn how user-generated content has transformed the games space. Consider
why magazines are switching their investment to online communities to
promote and support their traditional publishing brands. See how general
fiction publishers are using social networking to attract new readers. Find
out how content is being adapted for delivery on to mobile devices.

On a more serious note, consider how scholarly publishing must learn from
the best of the rest to stay viable in an increasingly digital future. 

This ALPSP seminar uses the successful "Back It or Bin It" format, first
used in 2007. Each delegate is given 500 "ALPSP dollars" to spend on any of
the investment opportunities presented by our industry experts. How would
you spend your money? Who has taught you the most? Which is the best
investment? Spend your dollars, and find out which of the speakers gets the
biggest investment.

Who should attend: editorial, publishing and marketing staff; and anyone who
has to make investment decisions.

Programme overview:

*	User generated content in games
*	Content for mobile devices
*	Magazine online communities
*	Social networking in general publishing 
*	Online radio

The seminar will close with a networking reception (wine and nibbles)
