LIS-Bibliometrics are delighted to announce the appointment of Robyn Price and Zosia Beckles as the new Co-Chairs of the LIS-Bibliometrics Committee. They bring with them a wide range of analytics experience across the UK HE and research sectors. Zosia is currently Research Information Analyst at the University of Bristol, responsible for the launch and development of their researcher metrics support service, and Robyn is the Bibliometrics and Indicators Manager at Imperial College London, where she established a responsible metrics service and advocates for open research practices. Founding Chair, Elizabeth (Lizzie) Gadd, will now take on more of a ‘grandparent’ role to the community, supporting the work of the group where need.
Zosia and Robyn write, “We’re really excited to continue Lizzie’s values of sharing bibliometrics knowledge and questioning assumptions. This community has helped define responsible metrics and we hope to sustain this in the future; particularly as responsible metrics continue to intersect with other sector issues like research assessment, rankings, open research, and equality, diversity and inclusion. In addition, we aim to widen support for the use of bibliometrics beyond research assessment – for example in information discovery and the transition to open access – and to continue the Committee’s collaborations with other national and international networks. With thanks to Lizzie and all past and current committee members, we look forward to working with the entire community!”
