Know Moore About: Responsible Metrics
New

Thu 26 Mar 2020

Description

Metrics have long been used as an indicator of academic success and as a way to make key decisions. As the measurement of impact becomes increasingly important within academia there has been something of a backlash against trusting purely quantitative methods of assessment. The Responsible Metrics movement aims to ensure that metrics are used fairly alongside other measures to gather a true assessment of impact. This session will discuss what the Responsible Metrics movement is, why it was developed, its importance and how research staff can get involved.

Update Due to the outbreak of COVID-19 and concerns around both staff and student safety the Moore Library has taken the decision to move all of its training sessions online for the foreseeable future. Please do not go to the Moore Library at your scheduled session time as this will no longer be running.

A recorded version of this training session will be uploaded on the date of the session. If you are interested in receiving an email notifying you of this, please sign up for the session. We will then circulate the links to the resources, as well as linking them here.

As always, the Moore Research Support team will be available to answer any questions or offer any support that you may need at this time. Please email moore-rso@lib.cam.ac.uk and we will get back to you as soon as possible.
