LIS Bibliometrics 2019 Event: Open Metrics and Measuring Openness

The 2019 lis-bibliometric event is coming up very soon!  

On Tuesday 29th January 2019, the lis-bibliometric community will gather at the British Library Conference Centre for a jam-packed day of discussions around open metrics and measuring openness.

This year’s event (kindly sponsored by Digital Science) will feature two highly anticipated keynote presentations from Catriona McCallum, Co-Originator of the I4OC Initiative for Open Citations; and Dr Isabella Peters, Professor of Web Science at the ZBW Leibniz Information Centre for Economics and CAU Kiel University, followed by three stimulating parallel sessions.

During the afternoon, there will be a flurry of exciting lightning talks followed by a thought provoking panel session chaired by Dr Lizzie Gadd exploring challenges around research evaluation systems and potential collaborative “joined-up” solutions. Closing the day with the opportunity to hear from a couple of international peer groups and the work they’ve been conducted – view the full agenda with abstracts.

Despite increasing the capacity of this year’s event, tickets have now sold out. However, there are a few ways that you can tune in on the day: follow @TheBibliomagic on Twitter as we document the day; and by following and engaging with the conference hashtag on Twitter#LisBib19. Videos (for some of the sessions) & slides will be uploaded in due course, and we’ll also blog a digested read of the day soon afterwards, so please stay tuned.
