Responsible use of research metrics

About this video

Now that you have gained your knowledge on what research metrics are and why they are important - it's time to make sure you know how to use them responsibly. 

In this webinar, we consider what responsible research assessment really means in practice. We focus on the relationship between research evaluation and research metrics, especially in the case of journal and author metrics. We explore the research community’s increasing focus on it, the messages and statements from the leading organisations involved, and the drivers behind the improvements.
