The National Information Standard Organization (NISO) Altmetrics Initiative is now in its final stages with several community-crafted documents nearly at publication stage. This session will discuss the creation of recommended practices intended to support further uptake of so-called “alternative” metrics and measurements for electronic publications: definitions and use cases describing altmetrics in general, recommendations for the use of data metrics, tools for supporting persistent identifiers, and a Code of Conduct for data providers. Panelists have been participants in the working groups and will detail perspectives and considerations that have provided input for the published documents, which are NISO Recommended Practices intended for consumption and use across the industry by any user or entity wishing to further explore and exploit the area of alternative assessment metrics.
