[InetBib] HIRMEOS Workshops: Why does Open Annotation matter? & Metrics and Altmetrics for OA Monographs (10-11 Jan 2019, Paris)

Dear colleagues,

The HIRMEOS<http://www.hirmeos.eu/> project (High Integration of Research 
Monographs in the European Open Science infrastructure) organizes two workshops 
on 10th and 11th January 2019 at INRIA<https://www.inria.fr/en/> in Paris:

Why does Open Annotation matter? (10th Jan, 10:30-17:30)
Metrics and Altmetrics for Open Access Monographs (11th Jan, 9:30-16:30)

The topics covered by these two events - annotation of scholarly works on the 
one hand  and the collection of usage and impact metrics for Open Access 
digital monographs on the other - are closely linked. Remarks and comments, 
when made public, can be considered an indicator of resonance, influence and 
impact. Therefore, any service aimed at a bibliometric analysis of scholarly 
production must also pay attention to text annotations. To this aim, the 
HIRMEOS project is both implementing an online annotation tool and 
standardizing usage metrics and alternative metrics on its platforms.
Annotation tools help to expand scholarly content, make peer review more 
efficient and transparent, and promote community participation. We will focus 
during the first workshop  - Why does Open Annotation matter? - on possible 
applications of the annotation service in scholarly research and teaching, 
scientific blogging and open peer review. We will start by considering some 
cultural-historical aspects of annotating texts. Afterwards, the hypothes.is 
tool for annotation of digital documents will be presented and it will be shown 
how it has been implemented and used on the digital platforms involved in the 
HIRMEOS project (OpenEdition Books, OAPEN Library, EKT ePublishing, Göttingen 
University Press, Ubiquity Press). We will then discuss specific usage 
scenarios and allow participants to get some practical experiences with the 
annotation of digital texts. To this aim, the participants will work in groups 
(please bring your own laptop!) and annotate different texts together. 
Afterwards we will discuss the experiences and try to formulate some general 
recommendations for the use of the annotation tool on digital monographs and 
other forms of texts.
The second workshop on 11th January - Metrics and Altmetrics for Open Access 
Monographs - will focus on the HIRMEOS service aimed at collecting and 
visualizing metrics and altmetric data for Open Access monographs in the 
humanities and social sciences. The first part of this workshop will be 
dedicated to presenting the implementation on the digital platforms involved in 
the HIRMEOS project and the technical challenges that were involved. 
Afterwards, together with scholars in the social sciences and humanities, 
digital platform providers, members of funding institutions and librarians, we 
will consider the reliability of the HIRMEOS metrics service and of other tools 
to measure resonance, influence and impact of scholarly publications. In this 
way, we want to critically discuss in which way metrics tools can contribute to 
an informed decision-making in research evaluation, publishing, and library 
management. The workshop will conclude by formulating some recommendations for 
the implementation of the metrics service on other digital platforms outside of 
the project.

 Registration is free but limited to 30 participants (on a
