*Student Paper Contest*

/Are you tired of preparing papers which immediately migrate into 
professors’ files never to been seen again? /

/Recover your papers and send your most promising to the 2016 ASIST 
SIG/MET Student paper contest! /

*Purpose *

SIG/MET (http://www.asis.org/SIG/SIGMET/) seeks to encourage the 
development and networking opportunities of all those interested in the 
measurement of information. This contest is intended to foster student 
growth and promote the generation of new ideas and research in 
metric-related topics, including bibliometrics, scientometrics, 
informetrics, and altmetrics.

*Eligibility *

The first author of contest submissions must be a full-time student at 
the time of submission, irrespective of ASIS&T or SIG/MET membership. 
SIG/MET reserves the right to request proof of enrollment. Submissions 
should not be published work.

*Theme *

Papers should discuss theories, methods, policies, case studies, etc. on 
aspects of the measurement of information production and use. Topics 
could include:

*Selection *

Papers will be reviewed by SIG/MET officers and advisors to the SIG/MET

criteria include 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 membership to ASIS&T and a cash
