New program offers funding to research on evaluation metrics
As interest in measurement metrics continues to grow, Elsevier launches a new program to fund research in this area
By Gali Halevi Posted on 14 September 2014
Elsevier has launched a Metrics Development Program to provide data and financial sponsorship to individuals and research groups working on scientific evaluation metrics.
The aim of the program is to encourage research into a range of impact measures such as bibliometrics, altmetrics, and individual- or institution-level metrics.
Researchers, administrators and managers across industries and countries are constantly seeking ways to measure the impact of their funded projects and research in a systematic manner.
For more information about submissions and proposals, please visit the Metrics Development Program website.
