2016 SSP 38th Annual Meeting
Concurrent 4B: Standards and Recommended Practices…
The National Information Standard Organization (NISO) Altmetrics Initiative is now in its final stages, with several community-crafted documents ready for publication. This session will discuss two areas of the working groups collaborating to create recommended practices intended to support further uptake of alternative metrics and measurements for electronic publications: definitions and use cases describing altmetrics in general and a Code of Conduct for data providers. Panelists have been working group participants, and will detail perspectives and considerations that have provided input for the published documents, which are NISO Recommended Practices intended for consumption and use across the industry by any user or entity wishing to further explore and exploit the area of alternative metrics.
Moderator: Todd Carpenter, NISO
