Meeting title

Data Usage Metrics WG (Remote Access Instructions)

Collaborative session notes:


Short introduction describing the scope of the group and if any previous activities

Research data is increasingly recognized as an important output of scholarly research, however, there are not yet standardized or comprehensive research data metrics as there are with articles. The “Make Data Count” project hosted a Birds of a Feather at RDA Plenary 10 and recognized that many other groups are working in this space and interested in implementing a standardized set of data usage metrics. Lending expertise from various projects and research stakeholders, this WG, a part of the Publishing Data IG, aims to harness community buy-in of data usage metrics and drive widespread adoption.

This first WG meeting will focus on an overview of initiatives in the data usage metrics space, presenting the scope for the WG and proposed deliverables, and having a community discussion about the direction and needs for data usage metrics.
