altmetrics 12 Workshop
|Event Date:||Thursday, June 21, 2012|
Evanston, IL • 21 June 2012
The workshop website is at http://altmetrics.org/altmetrics12/
The altmetrics12 workshop program is now available here: http://altmetrics.org/altmetrics12/program/.
You can not only see the abstracts of presentations, but also comment on them (like a blog).
About the Workshop
Increasing scholarly use of Web2.0 tools like Mendeley, Academia.edu, Twitter, and blog-style article commenting presents an opportunity to track scholarly impact in novel ways. Metrics based on this diverse set of Web sources could yield broader, richer, and more timely assessments of current and potential scholarly impact. Realizing this, many authors have begun to investigate these altmetrics, and growing numbers of publishers, funders, and tool-makers are putting altmetrics to practical use.
altmetrics12 encourages continued investigation into the the properties of these metrics: their validity, their potential value and flaws, and their relationship to established measures. Submissions are invited from a variety of areas:
- New metrics based on social media
- Tracking science communication on the Web
- Relation between traditional metrics and altmetrics
- Peer-review and altmetrics
- Tools for gathering, analyzing, disseminating altmetrics
This workshop, a follow-up to the successful altmetrics11, will encourage collaboration and cross-pollination between research and practice, combining academic paper presentations with a tech demo showcase and small-group discussions.
Important Dates2-page abstracts due June 1, 2012 Acceptance and abstract publication June 5, 2012 Open pre-workshop discussion June 5 – June 21, 2012 Workshop at WebSci 11 June 21, 2012 Discussion closed June 30, 2012 Invitations for post-workshop proceedings TBA
Prospective authors should submit 2-page extended abstracts (max. 1000 words, not including references) via EasyChair. If necessary, the workshop organizers will select the most relevant, original, and significant abstracts for presentation. Experimental results will be given preference, followed by technical reports on working altmetrics tools and position papers. All selected submissions will be published online for open peer review and discussion. Authors are encouraged to participate in the discussions of their work. Based on the presentations and online discussion, selected authors may be asked to submit full papers for peer-reviewed proceedings.
Submissions should be submitted either as plain text or as light weight html. If figures are needed, please use relative urls and submit these as attachments.
The workshop is hosted by the ACM Web Science Conference 2012 (Evanston, Illinois). This interdisciplinary conference focuses on advances in studying the full range of social-technical relationships on the Web. Please visit the conference website for more information.
