9:45 a.m. – 10:40 a.m. Session One: New Directions in Assessment and Measurement: Will Altmetrics Replace the Impact Factor
The altmetrics movement seeks to go beyond traditional citation-based impact factors to consider the influence of a scholar and the value of his/her research by looking at the variety of factors beyond article citations. Altmetrics gather data on an individual’s social interactions, professional affiliations and scholarly presentations. Newer forms of scholarly outputs, such as the creation of data sets or authorship of computer code, are also taken into account. This session will explore these and other new developments in the area of assessment.

1:30 p.m. – 3:00 p.m. Session Two: New Directions for Scholarly Publishing: Changes in Asia
There are numerous projections demonstrating that scholarly outputs from Asia have overtaken or will very soon overtake the outputs, particularly those of journal articles, coming from the USA. Much of the work described is important and will become more important particularly in view of the amount of research and development being funded by the Chinese government. Scholars themselves, librarians, publishers and other vendors have a role in facilitating the actual presentation of this scholarship in order to ensure maximum impact. This session includes speakers from all these sectors and similarly qualified reactors with a view to enabling discussion and exchange of experience.

9:00 a.m. – 10:30 a.m. Session Three: New Collaboratives: Working Together to Serve Scholars
Knowledge and research expand, with increasingly sophisticated and intricate connections across subject and global borders. Worldwide collaborations grow and thrive. The services and infrastructures to support such growth and complexity are becoming not only critically important, but also themselves worthy of study and analysis. This session features ambitious and innovative partnerships in support of researchers and scholars at the local university level, nationally, and worldwide. With the aim of carrying information across today’s boundaries to new frontiers, these endeavors hasten the advancement of sciences and arts. Each speaker describes his or her organization’s distinctive and exciting contributions to our new and partnered world.
