  2014 ASIS&T SIG/MET Student Paper Contest

Are you tired of preparing papers which immediately migrate into your 
professors' files and have not been seen ever since? Recover your papers 
and give them a life and a great opportunity for yourself. Send your 
most promising papers to the 2014 ASIST SIG/MET Student paper contest 
where you have the chance to present your work in front of an interested 
audience, discuss it with established researchers, and win the ASIS&T 
SIG/MET Student Paper Award.

**

This is the fourth annual student paper contest for SIG/MET, the Special 
Interest Group for the measurement of information production and 
use(http://www.asis.org/SIG/met.html)of 
<http://www.asis.org/SIG/met.html%29of> the Association for Information 
Science & Technology (ASIS&T <http://www.asis.org/>). The contest is 
designed to recognize promising student research relating to the 
measurement of information, publication, and research and gives students 
a forum to meet the leaders of the field.


    _Purpose_

SIG/MET seeks to encourage the development and networking opportunities 
of all those interested in the measurement of information.  It is 
holding this contest to foster student growth and promote the generation 
of new ideas and research in metric-related topics, including 
bibliometrics, scientometrics, informetrics, altmetrics and other 
related domains.


    _Eligibility_

The first author of the paper entered into this contest must be a 
full-time student at the time of submission, irrespective of ASIS&T or 
SIG/MET membership. Only solo or first authored student manuscripts will 
be accepted, in order to ensure that the student made significant 
contributions to the work. SIG/MET reserves the right to request proof 
of enrollment as part of the submission and evaluation process. 
Submissions should not have been published work, although they may be 
submitted to a journal at the time of submission to the contest.


    _Theme_

Papers should discuss theories, methods, policies, case studies, etc. on 
aspects of the measurement of information production and use. Topics 
could include, but are not limited to, the following core areas:

·Metric-Related Theory

·Methods and new techniques

·Citation and co-citation analysis

·Indicators

·Web metrics

·Information visualization

·Research policy

·Productivity

·Journals, databases and electronic publications

·Collaboration/Co-authorship

·Patent analysis

·Knowledge and topic diffusion

·Altmetrics

*_Selection_*

Papers will be reviewed by SIG/MET officers and advisors to the SIG/MET 
workshop. At least one winner will be chosen. In the past, we have also 
given commendation to other particularly outstanding papers. Selection 
criteria include those that would be considered in traditional peer 
review: that is, the quality of the research, the presentation of the 
results, and the originality of the research question.


    _Prizes_

The winner will be awarded a one-year individual membership to ASIS&T 
and a cash prize, sponsored by Elsevier. If of sufficient merit and 
pending available funds, two winners may be announced: one for the best 
first-authored paper and one for the best sole-authored paper.  Authors 
of highly rated papers will be invited to submit a short biographical 
piece to be featured on the SIG/MET website. In addition, these authors 
may be invited to present their research under their own expense at the 
SIG/MET pre-conference workshop at the 2014 Annual ASIS&T Meeting.


    _Format_

Submissions can be of any length and format, but should ideally reflect 
typical standards of a journal article (i.e., approximately 6,000 words 
and in an appropriate citation style for the social sciences).


    _Submission & Deadline_

Authors are invited to submit manuscripts by *midnight* *EST on 
Wednesday, August 13 2014*, to the following 
website:https://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=sigmetspc2014

The students will be notified about the results by September 1, 2014.
