The Los Alamos National Laboratory Research Library & Elsevier invite you to
A Symposium on

Mapping and Measuring Scientific Output

May 10th, 2011
At Hilton Santa Fe Historic Plaza

 

Measuring the impact and value of scientific publications is critical in times of information overload and budget constrains. Through the years, several methodologies and metrics have been developed in order to address some of the many factors that can be taken into consideration when assessing scientific output.

This symposium will address traditional and emerging metrics as well as the development of scientific maps and visualization tools and explore their different uses.

Join us for a day lead by world renowned speakers to hear and discuss the metrics that are used to evaluate the value and impact of research publications and how to increase the visibility of yours. Learn how scientific trends are being mapped and what are the latest visualization tools that are used to discover emerging scientific directions.
