Product Details


With caution and care, decisions about the future directions, funding and staffing of science will be better informed by the approaches and developments discussed in Beyond Bibliometrics. What we now need from this book’s expert group is an accessible working narrative to guide the rest of us in our day jobs.—Nature

This well-constructed and balanced compilation should be required reading for all information scientists, faculty, and administrators navigating the murky and increasingly institutionalized field of metrics-based assessment, in both the academy and science policy. Anyone involved in developing and assessing collections or answering accrediting and administrative questions related to the academic value of those collections using bibliometrics must read this book.

Collection Management

Beyond Bibliometrics is an invaluable collection and guide for librarians involved in research evaluation and students and researchers in the fields of information science, science studies, and scientometrics.

Maria Forsman, Library & Information Science Research
