What can bibliometrics do for you? What can you do for bibliometrics? These central questions will be answered during the workshop “Quantifying and Analysing Scholarly Communication on the Web (#ASCW15)” on Tuesday, June 30, 2015.
Co-organized by Peter Kraker and Elisabeth Lex from the Social Computing Team at Know-Center, this workshop has been accepted at the renowned ACM Web Science Conference 2015 (#websci15) which takes place in Oxford, UK, from June 28th to July 1st, 2015. The Web Science Conference is a great place to bring together researchers and practitioners in discussions about benefits between different disciplines and cultures, highlighting current barriers and proposing novel ways of interdisciplinary research.
The workshop targets the topics “scholarly communication”, “research evaluation”, “impact measurement”, “search and discovery”, “science studies” and “bibliometrics” . In order to exchange expertise, the organizers are especially interested in contributions that help to bridge the gap between bibliometrics and other disciplines.
Researchers are invited to submit position papers which will, upon acceptance, be published on the workshop website, presented in short lightning talks and discussed during a special round table format. The deadline for submission is April 30, 2015.
The Call for Submissions as well as more details on workshop format and key aspects can be found on the workshop’s website: http://ascw.know-center.tugraz.at/
