Bibliometrics and Research Impact

Canadian Bibliometrics and Research Impact Community of Practice

Established in 2023, the Bibliometrics and Research Impact Community of Practice (CoP) brings together library workers and other colleagues from Canadian academic institutions working or interested in the areas of bibliometric and research impact assessment. The goals of the CoP are to share information and grow expertise and capacity across Canada by connecting colleagues interested in bibliometric tools, data, governance, management, or administration through meetings, workshops, community calls, and informal information sharing.

Activities are coordinated by the CARL Canadian Bibliometrics and Research Impact Community of Practice Steering Committee, who facilitate and guide the actions and directions of the CoP. More information about the Steering Committee is available in their Terms of Reference.

To join this community of practice and stay informed about the group’s upcoming events and ongoing activities, subscribe to BIBLIOMET-CARL-L , the bibliometrics and research impact discussion list. This email-based mailing list is open to anyone working or interested in the areas of bibliometric and research impact assessment, with the purpose of facilitating communication, information sharing, and discussion.
