What are you doing today?

The Lis-Bibliometrics commissioned, Elsevier sponsored bibliometric competencies research project is seeking to develop a community-supported set of bibliometric competencies, particularly for those working in libraries as well as in other related services.  You can take part by completing the bibliometrics competencies survey at: https://survey.shef.ac.uk/limesurvey/index.php?sid=27492&lang=en

To get a flavour of the variety of bibliometric work going on, I asked fellow Lis-Bibliometric Committee members what they’re doing today:

“Today I’m helping a researcher clean up his very muddled and duplicated Scopus Author IDs and link his outputs to his ORCID iD. I’m also thinking about how best to benchmark the output of our Law school against our competitors for undergraduate students.” Karen Rowlett, Research Publications Adviser, University of Reading

“Today I’m discussing the release of our Responsible Metrics Statement (now approved by Senate J) with our PVCR; running some analyses on SciVal which look at the impact of Loughborough’s conference publications on our overall citation performance; and presenting at a cross-university meeting aimed at exploring how to improve the visibility of our research.” Elizabeth Gadd, Research Policy Manager (Publications), Loughborough University

“Today I am preparing a presentation on Metrics for one of the teams, and working on analysing the Leiden Ranking data.” Sahar Abuelbashar, Research Metrics Analyst, University of Sussex

Meanwhile, I’m advising researchers on using citation metrics in grant applications.  What are you doing today?
