Event Details

open-written-over-and-over-on-graph-paperimage by Libby Levi for opensource.comNew strategies for assessing the quality of open content—including journal articles, textbooks, and data sets—are emerging from different quarters. These strategies range from new methods of peer review, such as open peer review or post-publication peer review; new methods of measuring impact, such as alternative metrics; and new forms of annotation, such as data set annotation and open comments on publications.

The SPARC-ACRL forum at the 2014 American Library Association (ALA) Annual Conference in Las Vegas will explore the challenges and opportunities of evaluating open content, across disciplines and across resource types, while identifying promising pathways to identify and use quality open content.
