Research and Productivity Measurement Webcast - SLA D.C. Chapter - October 27, 2010

Impact and Productivity Measurements in a Changing Research Environment
Hosted by Elsevier in conjunction with SLA Washington D.C. Chapter
The Library of Congress, Mumford Room - October 27, 2010

"Research productivity had been measured through citation metrics in much the same way for many years now. But in recent years, SNIP, SJR and h-Index have joined Impact Factor as leading performance metric providing new insights into research at the forefront of discovery.

In today's rapidly changing, global and collaborative research environment, the research community is looking for new methodologies to assess research that better reflect the complexities of today's research. Today's research assessments need to encompass many performance metrics and consider measurements that do not easily lend themselves to analytics such as patents, products, business initiatives and awards.

"Impact and Productivity Measurements in a Changing Research Environment" furthers this dialog. Watch the presentations and Q&A from a day of learning and discussion with the leaders of research & productivity measurements in the scholarly community, held on October 27th, in Washington, DC, USA."
