*November 16 Webinar: Research Data Metrics Landscape (NISO Working Group
Connections LIVE!)*

In June 2013, the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation awarded NISO a grant to
undertake a two-phase initiative to explore, identify, and advance
standards and/or best practices related to a new suite of potential metrics
in the community. The NISO Altmetrics Project has successfully moved to
Phase Two, the formation of three working groups, A, B, & C. Working Group
B, led by Kristi Holmes, PhD, Director, Galter Health Sciences Library at
Northwestern University, and Mike Taylor, Senior Product Manager,
Informetrics at Elsevier, is focused on the Output Types & Identifiers
within the alternative metrics landscape.
