Cassidy Sugimoto will present a webinar onNovel forms of scholarly impact: Seeking validation in an open metric market” at the next Division of Chemical Information Webinar on Tuesday, March 17, 2015 at 11 am US/Eastern Daylight Time.  

Cassidy Sugimoto is Assistant Professor in the School of Informatics and Computing at Indiana University Bloomington, and a prolific author on new metrics used in scholarly assessment, especially those derived from social media. Her most recent compilations have looked at the historical criticism of scholarly metrics (Scholarly Metrics under the Microscope, ITI, 2015) and have explored the proliferation of novel forms of tools for scholarly assessment (Beyond Bibliometrics, MIT Press, 2014). Her empirical work has examined interalia scholarly tweets, the validity of metrics in 10 different social media services, and science communication in TED videos. In her talk, she will present an overview of new metrics, the validity of these metrics, and what they bring to the spectrum of assessing scholarly impact.
