I'll just add the JISC bibliometrics listserv (https://www.jiscmail.ac.uk/cgi-bin/webadmin?A0=LIS-BIBLIOMETRICS ). Unfortunately ASIST more or less killed the SIGMETRICS list with their shenanigans.

Their 2018 book 'Measuring research, what everyone needs to know' is a particularly good read, and an easy starting point for some of the common critiques/challenges. It's short, cheap, and aimed at practitioners.
For recent research in Scientometrics and related areas, I like JASIST
Journal of Informetrics
Frontiers in Research Metrics and Analytics http://journal.frontiersin.org/journal/research-metrics-and-analytics
Frontiers in... Mapping Science: Resources, Tools, and Benchmarks http://journal.frontiersin.org/researchtopic/5561/mapping-science-resources-tools-and-benchmarks#overview
In terms of research community, International Society on Scientometrics and Informetrics (ISSI) (http://www.issi-society.org/news.html , odd-numbered years),ASIST SIGMET and their workshops (e.g. ( https://www.asist.org/SIG/SIGMET/2018/06/12/sigmet-workshop-2018-cfp/ ) and conferences like
COLLNET/International Conference on Webometrics, Informetrics and Scientometrics (http://www.collnet.de http://socio.org.uk/collnet2018/ ), Nordic Workshop on Bibliometrics and Research Policy (https://blogs.helsinki.fi/nwb-2017/
may be helpful. (among others; this year's JCDL had a crop of metrics-related papers for instance)
