The Bibliometrics Forum will be held for the second time at the University Library of the Technical University of Munich on 1-2 July 2021. The programme includes online presentations on fundamental and specific questions of bibliometric practice and offers broad space for discussion and exchange of experience between specialists.
University libraries have been offering bibliometric services to researchers, faculties and university administrations for several years. Through bibliometric procedures, i.e. the evaluation of publication and citation data, they support researchers in making publications as visible as possible and advise universities on rankings and performance benchmarks.
The Bibliometrics Forum focuses on the question of how the concept of "responsible metrics", i.e. the responsible use of bibliometric indicators and methods, can be implemented in practice. In addition, the aim is to develop approaches to solutions for concrete bibliometric questions for which there are no standard procedures so far.
The online seminar is aimed at colleagues from libraries and academia as well as from university administrations and management who deal with bibliometrics in their work. The seminar language is predominantly German.
