 Hello. Please find attached and below the 2013 Call for Student Papers

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 2013 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 Best
Student Paper Award.

* *

This is the third annual student paper contests for SIG/MET, the Special
Interest Group for the measurement of information production and use (
http://www.asis.org/SIG/met.html)of 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.

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, infometrics, webometrics and other related domains.

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.

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

·         Webometrics

·         Information visualization

·         Research policy

·         Productivity

·         Journals, databases and electronic publications

·         Collaboration/Co-authorship

·         Patent analysis

·         Knowledge and topic diffusion

·         Altmetrics


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.

The winner will be awarded a one-year individual membership to ASIS&T and a
cash prize, sponsored by Elsevier. If of sufficient merit, two winners may
be announced: one for the best first-authored paper and one for the best
sole-authored paper.  Monetary prizes and membership may be available for
more than one paper, depending on merit. 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 2013 Annual ASIS&T Meeting in Montreal, Canada.

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).

Authors are invited to submit manuscripts by *midnight* *EST on Monday,
July 29th 2013*, to the following website:
