Limited Capacity seats available

With the increase in networked communication it is now possible to determine who is interacting with research and what they are saying. People on both sides of the research equation – people who fund research and people who perform research – can now use new metrics, sometime called alternative metrics or altmetrics, to look beyond citation counts and published articles, and answer their questions and tell the stories behind research.

Autism Speaks, the world’s leading autism science and advocacy organization, is an early adopter of new metrics using them to help determine the return on investment (ROI) of their grants.

This panel will take representatives from different part of research institutions such as scholarly communication, research administration and the library, and join Autism Speaks to discuss the role that new metrics can play on both sides of a research grant. Sharing the goals, objectives and challenges amongst this diverse group can create understanding and consensus about measuring research impact, determining the ROI of grants and telling the stories of the research.

Plum Analytics, a developer of a metrics tool for both funders and research institutions, will moderate this panel.
