Beyond Citations: New Metrics for Measuring the Impact of Research Data
- Main contributor
Today's scholars are at a critical juncture with respect to how they will measure the impact of their research in coming years. At the same time that scholars in various disciplines are increasingly being encouraged to share their research data, new technologies are enabling the measurement of the variety of ways in which such data is shared and reused. This talk will explain not only recent initiatives to develop standards and technologies to support data citation, but other frameworks for measurement that aim to quantify the impact that curators and digital libraries' designs have on the reuse of research data. It will also cover ways in which researchers can leverage campus and national resources to promote the tracking of impact metrics for their own data.
