Washington, DC20009-1277

Who Should Attend: Anyone involved in journals publishing,
marketing, sales
or editorial management and strategy; librarians involved in
collection management.

The session will look at the current environment where a number
of metric tools are available to measure research performance and
trends.  Starting with ISI's impact factor which has been the
cornerstone of citation analysis for decades, we will also look
at some newly emerging methodologies - the h-index, Eigenfactor
and SCImago Journal Rank - that analyze bibliographic data in
different ways.  The indicators are used by many people
throughout the world of research and scholarship - authors in
deciding where to publish; funding agencies in evaluating
grantees and new grant proposals; administrators in making
hiring, promotion and tenure decisions; publishers in managing
journal quality and keeping abreast of new and emerging research
trends; librarians in managing journal collections and, finally,
the readers who want to know where to find reliable, high-quality
information.  The seminar will address the following issues:
