Join us for Alternative Metrics and the Future of Open Access, a conversation with Pete Binfield & Jason Hoyt, on 2011-10-27 at 1 PM EDT

Mendeley has some great events lined up for Open Access Week. William Gunn (Head of Academic Outreach) will be speaking at Open Science Summit the weekend of the 22nd, at the PLoS Open Access Week event with Heather Joseph on the 24th, at the UC Davis event on the 25th, and Mendeley NYC is hosting a online webcast with Pete Binfield (Managing Editor, PLoS) and Jason Hoyt (Research Director, Mendeley).

The Mendeley event will be conducted online via WebEx at 1 PM EDT on October 27.

Pete will discuss how the alternative metrics for impact that PLoS provides gives new insight into how OA content is used and shared. Jason will talk about how Mendeley built one of the world’s largest open catalogs of research and why that presents a perfect use case for Open Access.

We will put up a recording of the session afterwards, so check this post or our Youtube channel.

Registration is open until Oct 27
