Call for Participation and Save the Date for Bibliometrics and Research Assessment: A Symposium for Librarians and Information Professionals: Co-sponsored by the NIH Library and SLA Maryland Chapter
Join us on October 31 and November 1, 2016 for Bibliometrics and Research Assessment: A Symposium for Librarians and Information Professionals at the main National Institutes of Health (NIH) campus in Bethesda, MD for a two-day symposium on research assessment by librarians and information professionals. This symposium intends to bring together librarians and information professionals from academic, corporate, and government institutions to share ideas and best practices around the production and delivery of research assessment services.
Day 1 will feature keynote speakers discussing current trends in the fields of bibliometrics and research assessment, a poster session featuring librarians and information professionals who provide these services, and a group discussion on the role of librarians in research assessment.
Day 2 will feature a hands-on training session where participants will learn how to perform basic bibliometric analyses, including measuring citation impact and creating various kinds of bibliometric networks.
If you are a librarian or information professional already active in this area, please submit a proposal for the poster session. Send the title and abstract of your proposed poster to Chris Belter (firstname.lastname@example.org<mailto:email@example.com>) and Ya-Ling Lu (firstname.lastname@example.org<mailto:email@example.com>) by July 1, 2016. Proposals will be peer-reviewed and notifications of accepted posters will be made by July 15.
