Measuring Success Through Improved Attribution
Presentation at the VIVO 2015 Conference, August 14, 2015, Cambridge, MA
Measuring success through improved attribution As data science and informatics transform scholarly activities, the structure and composition of the typical scientific team is changing. Professionals from diverse backgrounds are now contributing fundamentally to discoveries and creative scholarly outputs, often in ways that cannot be quantified through traditional metrics of scholarly impact. To credit and evaluate the work of these important collaborators, we need mechanisms to capture such contributions. VIVO is well positioned to assist in the development of a standard mechanism for attribution and subsequent citation of these individuals creative contributions. With the goal of leading the way toward a computational model for collecting and disseminating contributor attribution data, this panel aims to identify stakeholders (researchers, developers, publishers, agencies), assess attribution requirements, and provide an interactive community forum to define innovative approaches to scientific attribution.
