The final JISC-British Library DataCite Workshop will take place on Friday 14th June in the British Library Conference Centre.
Developing effective means of measuring the impact of data publication is essential if data is to become recognised as a first class research output. The field of data metrics is still in its infancy, although both established indexing services and ‘altmetrics’ providers are now offering services which measure aspects of data use and impact.
In this workshop we will look at the role of metrics from the perspectives of various stakeholders and consider whether established means of evaluating the impact of journal articles can be applied equally to datasets and other non-traditional outputs. The role of the DOI as a tool for aiding citation and other measures of impact will also be considered alongside other metrics.
The workshop will provide an opportunity for those charged with managing research data to gain an overview of the current state of the metrics landscape, as well as to hear the views of a range of stakeholders on how research data should be measured.
