Join us for the closing keynote address of Open Access Week. Mike Buschman, co-founder of Plum Analytics, reflects on two years of experience collecting, analyzing, and visualizing alternative metrics that measure academic research, showing how alternative metrics are being used today by research institutions as diverse at the University of Pittsburgh and the Smithsonian, scholarly publishers, and individual researchers.
While citation counts have long been the tried-and-true measure of academic research usage and impact, metrics can now be harvested and applied to research around usage, captures, mentions, and social media, in addition to citations, giving a much more comprehensive and holistic view of impact.
Light refreshments will be served.
U-M Library is hosting a series of Open Access Week events that highlight projects, research, and policies at the University of Michigan that allow the public to access and reuse the results of scholarly research online.
