  *   AROSIM 2018 Full Day Workshop - January 26, 2018



The main objective of the AROSIM 2018 workshop is to create a forum to disseminate the latest works on altmetrics for measuring research impact and scholarly information management. The workshop will investigate how social media based metrics along with traditional and non-traditional metrics can advance the state-of-the-art in measuring research outputs.


The goals of the workshop are:
  *   To promote the exchange of ideas and encourage potential collaborations amongst scholars from both computer science and information science disciplines, as well as with librarians and industry
  *   To investigate challenges and explore solutions for cross-metric exploration and validation, while considering disciplinary differences related to measuring research outputs
  *   To showcase innovative altmetric tools, methods, and datasets
  *   To provide a discussion platform for the academic communities, librarians, policy makers, publishers, as well as grant funding agencies



We hope this workshop will help to inspire new research ideas as well as encourage future collaborations amongst the different disciplines and industry stakeholders.



A Best Paper Award, sponsored by Altmetric, will be given to the author(s) of the most outstanding work.
