November 16 Webinar: Research Data Metrics Landscape (NISO Working Group Connections LIVE!)

In June 2013, the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation awarded NISO a grant to undertake a two-phase initiative to explore, identify, and advance standards and/or best practices related to a new suite of potential metrics in the community. The NISO Altmetrics Project has successfully moved to Phase Two, the formation of three working groups, A, B, & C. Working Group B, led by Kristi Holmes, PhD, Director, Galter Health Sciences Library at Northwestern University, and Mike Taylor, Senior Product Manager, Informetrics at Elsevier, is focused on the Output Types & Identifiers within the alternative metrics landscape.
