LIS-Bibliometrics 10th anniversary event: The Future of Research Evaluation
Listing of all video recordings at the LIS-Bibliometrics 10th year anniversary conference
LIS-Bibliometrics was set up in 2010, with a particular focus on supporting LIS (Library and Information Science) professionals with the increasing volume of bibliometric queries, and training they were called upon to deliver. Increasingly, members are joining from other settings, such as Research and Planning Offices, as well as researchers in bibliometric science. The group is running a blog The Bibliomagician and a mailing list, which you can access here.
The group also holds a yearly 1-day workshop at which I have presented in the past. This year the LIS-Bibliometrics celebrated its 10th year anniversary with a workshop in Leeds. It included live-streamed sessions, thanks to the support of the Institution of Engineering and Technology. The videos are reproduced below.
