Universities and researchers increasingly need to demonstrate the quality, visibility and impact of their research endeavours to funders, governments and employers. Libraries and research offices are therefore investing in staff and tools to both understand and evidence research performance, with a particular focus on bibliometric and altmetric data. Research evaluation is complex with the use of bibliometric data controversial. Consequently, universities, funders and bibliometric vendors are being asked to act more responsibly. This session provided a UK perspective on how we are responding, with a particular focus on the responsible metrics approach at Loughborough University, and work of the Lis-Bibliometrics forum.
