A month ago I blogged that I was busy setting up a one day training course as part of the the ESRC Scottish Graduate School of Social Science summer school on behalf of the Information Science pathway. The details of this event, which takes place in Edinburgh on Thursday 20th June, are now live.
Entitled Alt-metrics: achieving and measuring success in communicating research in the digital age the format of the day includes the delivery of a lecture in the morning on alt metrics by Professor Blaise Cronin of Indiana University, followed by a discussion. In the afternoon Brian Kelly of the University of Bath will facilitate a workshop in which participants will work on their online presences, taking into account the insights gained in the morning session.
Registration for this workshop (and all other summer school activities) is now open until 18th March 2013 for students currently enrolled on social science programmes at Scottish Graduate School member institutions. Students enrolled at other institutions may be considered for places should any remain after the 18th March.
