So far the *metrics-Team has been participating at the following events in 2018:
Bibliothekartag: 12 - 15 June 2018, Berlin
Recent questions and solutions about Open Access are becoming more and more common in the day-to-day procedures librarians face. Therefore, the German Bibliothekartag shall not be missed, if one wants to inform themselves extensively. As well as in 2017, in 2018 *metrics joined the event with two contributions:
Open Metrics Seminar, 23 May 2018, Uppsala (Sweden)
The Swedish metrics Group was hosting the Open Metrics Seminar, to allow researchers to dicuss the oppurtunities and difficulties when working with open metrics. Our very own Steffen Lemke was invited as a speaker.
This year’s COAR Annual Meeting (Confederation of Open Access Repositories) took place in Hamburg. On May 14-17 2018, participants were able to interchange news and information regarding repositories, open access and open science with colleagues from all over the world.
