Elsevier Hosts Exclusive Webcast on Measuring Performance in Multidisciplinary Research Landscape

Groundbreaking Case Study on Alternative Energy Illustrates New Method for Identifying Leaders

WHAT: Live webcast, “Research Leadership Redefined…Measuring Performance in Multidisciplinary Landscape” that will:

  • Discuss the challenges of accurately measuring research performance
  • Offer insight into a new methodology for evaluating output through a multidisciplinary lens
  • Share results of a new study on alternative energy research leadership

WHY: Developing an accurate picture of how universities and countries are performing with respect to research is critical to advancing the frontiers of science. As the most pressing scientific challenges today increasingly require multidisciplinary solutions, the traditional methods of measuring research output no longer capture the reality of today’s scientific landscape.

WHO: Hosted by Elsevier, a world-leading publisher of scientific, technical and medical information products and services. Speakers will include:

  • Jay Katzen, Managing Director of Elsevier A&G and an expert on research productivity
  • Dick Klavans, Senior Development Advisor for Elsevier A&G and a renowned expert on research performance measurement and science mapping
  • Kevin Boyack, Senior Development Advisor for Elsevier and a recognized authority on multidisciplinary research.
