This is the second LATmetrics: Alternative Metrics and Open Science Conference being held in Latin America. The first was held in Niterói (Brazil) in 2018, which brought together researchers and students from Latin America interested in discussing alternative metrics and indicators for scientific evaluation in the region. The event seeks to explore metrics, indicators and evaluation systems in Science, Technology and Innovation that reflect the social demands of Latin America. Thus, the 2019 theme of “What alternative metrics do we want for Latin America?”

Digital Science and Altmetric are delighted to be sponsors of this event and Mike Taylor, Head of Metrics Development at Digital Science, will also be attending and speaking at the conference (view the programme here).
