Date: Thursday, January 21, 2021
Time: 1-2 p.m. ET
We welcome anyone curious about or working with bibliometrics and research impact indicators, across Canada, to join us for this inaugural Bibliometrics and Research Impact Community Call. The agenda is simple: we want to get folks talking, connecting, and building collaborations. We welcome everyone, including those working outside of libraries, to join this call.
This call is intended for all of us to start building connections and learning from one another. Therefore, we will start things off with some basic guiding questions about tools, staffing, services, and responsible use of metrics.
In collaboration with the CARL Advancing Research Committee, this call is supported by the Bibliometrics and Research Impact Community (BRIC), host of the annual BRIC Conference. Our hope is that this call can be the first of many calls that can connect our community between more formal events like the BRIC Conference.
This 60-minute call will be facilitated by Laura Bredahl, Bibliometrics and Research Impact Librarian at the University of Waterloo and Thane Chambers, Research Impact Librarian at the University of Alberta. Co-moderators will be on hand to ensure participants are able to contribute to the conversation in English or French.
