Bibliometrics & The Modern Academic Library: A Unique Cross-Campus Partnership At The University Of Waterloo
MetadataShow full item record
As one measure used to capture research productivity trends, and elements of research impact, the University of Waterloo recognizes bibliometric measures as an important piece of evidence-based research assessment. Join these speakers to learn how the University of Waterloo uses bibliometric measures to better understand the University s research productivity and impact. This session will explore: the increasing use of bibliometrics as an accountability tool, how bibliometrics inform discussion on areas of research strength and emerging areas, the research analytics tool InCites , and the use of bibliometric data in replicating university rankings results. Also learn about the University s campus-wide Bibliometrics Working Group and White Paper on Bibliometrics, written in effort to bring discussion and clarity to the campus community around the use and misuse of common bibliometric measures. This work is possible through a unique partnership involving the University of Waterloo s Office of Research, Institutional Analysis and Planning, and the Library.
