- Subject: [InetBib] HIRMEOS Workshops: Why does Open Annotation matter? & Metrics and Altmetrics for OA Monographs (10-11 Jan 2019, Paris)
The HIRMEOS<http://www.hirmeos.eu/> project (High Integration of Research
Monographs in the European Open Science infrastructure) organizes two workshops
on 10th and 11th January 2019 at INRIA<https://www.inria.fr/en/> in Paris:
Why does Open Annotation matter? (10th Jan, 10:30-17:30)
Metrics and Altmetrics for Open Access Monographs (11th Jan, 9:30-16:30)
The topics covered by these two events - annotation of scholarly works on the
one hand and the collection of usage and impact metrics for Open Access
digital monographs on the other - are closely linked. Remarks and comments,
when made public, can be considered an indicator of resonance, influence and
impact. Therefore, any service aimed at a bibliometric analysis of scholarly
production must also pay attention to text annotations. To this aim, the
HIRMEOS project is both implementing an online annotation tool and
standardizing usage metrics and alternative metrics on its platforms.
Annotation tools help to expand scholarly content, make peer review more
efficient and transparent, and promote community participation. We will focus
during the first workshop - Why does Open Annotation matter? - on possible
applications of the annotation service in scholarly research and teaching,
scientific blogging and open peer review. We will start by considering some
cultural-historical aspects of annotating texts. Afterwards, the hypothes.is
tool for annotation of digital documents will be presented and it will be shown
how it has been implemented and used on the digital platforms involved in the
HIRMEOS project (OpenEdition Books, OAPEN Library, EKT ePublishing, Göttingen
University Press, Ubiquity Press). We will then discuss specific usage
scenarios and allow participants to get some practical experiences with the
annotation of digital texts. To this aim, the participants will work in groups
(please bring your own laptop!) and annotate different texts together.
Afterwards we will discuss the experiences and try to formulate some general
recommendations for the use of the annotation tool on digital monographs and
other forms of texts.
The second workshop on 11th January - Metrics and Altmetrics for Open Access
Monographs - will focus on the HIRMEOS service aimed at collecting and
visualizing metrics and altmetric data for Open Access monographs in the
humanities and social sciences. The first part of this workshop will be
dedicated to presenting the implementation on the digital platforms involved in
the HIRMEOS project and the technical challenges that were involved.
Afterwards, together with scholars in the social sciences and humanities,
digital platform providers, members of funding institutions and librarians, we
will consider the reliability of the HIRMEOS metrics service and of other tools
to measure resonance, influence and impact of scholarly publications. In this
way, we want to critically discuss in which way metrics tools can contribute to
an informed decision-making in research evaluation, publishing, and library
management. The workshop will conclude by formulating some recommendations for
the implementation of the metrics service on other digital platforms outside of
