Now Online: SPARC Europe's Webcast on Article Level Metrics with Jennifer Lin
Thursday, July 12, 2012
In March 2009, the Public Library of Science (PLoS) became the first publisher to track transparent and comprehensive information about the usage and reach of published articles - rather than journals - so that the academic community has another avenue to help assess their value. These measures are called Article-Level Metrics (ALMs).
On July 12, Jennifer Lin, Product Manager at PLoS, gave an in-depth look at the the current status of Article Level Metrics, a discussion of what has been learned to date, and a glimpse into what is on the horizon for their further development and wider adoption.
