Alternative forms of research assessment and impact - Discussion

There's general agreement that over-reliance on the journal Impact Factor (IF) and similar metrics in evaluation gives too much weight to one small (if important) aspect of research, while overlooking many other forms of contribution. However, finding meaningful ways of measuring those other contributions has proved challenging. This session will highlight some of the more meaningful metrics now being developed, and the next steps in achieving their widespread adoption.
