Marcie Granahan,
NFAIS Executive Director
The impact of metrics on research assessment has been a recent topic of discussion, from Nature’s Leiden Manifesto, to Academia.edu’s study reporting 75% more citations for research papers shared on its site, to The Committee on Publication Ethics’ annual seminar on how metrics shape publication behavior.

Inside this week’s edition of NFAIS Advances, you’ll find several articles that explore the future evolution of metrics, including How to change the centuries-old model of academic publishing, Are current scholarly metrics leading us away from research transparency?, Rising metrics need to go deeper, and Academics seek a big splash.

And don’t forget to join the discussion in the NFAIS Advances Community Forum, where I consider the future measurement of impact.  If you missed it, check out last year’s webinar featuring Academia.edu founder, Richard Price – Academic Social Networks: The Promise and the Challenge – available through NFAIS’ educational archives. NFAIS members can download one free archived webinar annually.

As always, I hope you enjoy reading this week’s issue of NFAIS Advances! And feel free to share with colleagues and friends.
