Workshop on Scholarly Evaluation Metrics
I'm very pleased to share this workshop announcement with the CNI community. The workshop will take place the day after the fall CNI meeting. I think this will be an important opportunity to look at the state of the art in measuring the impact of scholarly work and to shape the research agenda. I'll be moderating the closing panel.

NSF-funded Workshop "Scholarly Evaluation Metrics: Opportunities and Challenges"

The topic of the workshop is the future of scholarly assessment approaches, including organizational, infrastructural, and community issues. The overall goal is to identify requirements for novel assessment approaches, several of which have been proposed in recent years, to become acceptable to community stakeholders including scholars, academic and research institutions, and funding agencies. The impressive group of speakers and panelists for the workshop includes representatives from each of these constituencies.

Workshop organizers: Johan Bollen (, Herbert Van de Sompel ( and Ying Ding (
