We are delighted to announce that Adrian Stanley, Managing Director, Publishers at Digital Science, will be speaking during the NISO Plus Conference in Baltimore, Maryland, US on Tuesday 25 February 2020. Adrian will be presenting alongside Ann Michael from PLOS and will discuss ‘Beyond Altmetrics: What’s next in the world of information metrics’ at 1100 and 1200.  Join them both to look at how metrics are used by different stakeholder groups, publishers, librarians, funders and researchers, as well as a closer look at the use of predictive metrics.    The session will be lively with lots of audience interaction and questions, including ‘if you had the right business metrics, would you change your working practices?’ 

Also speaking will be Mark Hahnel, CEO and Founder of Figshare (a Digital Science portfolio company).  Mark will look at ‘Big Data’ on Sunday 23 February at 1500 and 1600.

The NISO Plus Conference celebrates the merger of NISO and NFAIS with a new and different conference experience for the information community. The goal is to bring all of the constituencies in the information economy together to generate discussion, seek common ground, identify areas of opportunity and provide a space and resources to work towards solving common problems.  View the full programme here.
