Research impact beyond metrics

Traditional metrics, such as the h-index and journal impact factors, are used to measure the scholarly impact of research. However, in the current climate of accountability by funding providers, fund recipients would benefit from a more comprehensive impact management system (IMS) to facilitate the capture and reporting of narratives (including metrics) about research impact in the academy, on social policy, in industry, and ultimately with the public.

Librarians have always been good at telling and facilitating stories. Research support librarians can use their storytelling skills to contribute to the implementation and administration of an impact management system. Being able to translate research impact into harvestable and reportable metadata is the key.

Mark F. Christopher's insight:

"The digital age is about multiple views onto the same content. Information professionals have been adjusting their methods to this new reality for decades now: this is not a new trend. I would argue that Wikipedia is a good illustration of the tipping point in the public consciousness of the interconnectedness of information."
