Professor Osborne Presents New Scholarship on Scholarly Impact at UNC KRELL Scholarship Series

On Monday, April 6, 2020, Professor Caroline Osborne and co-author Stephanie Miller presented new scholarship as part of the UNC KRELL Scholarship Series. The Kathrine R. Everett Law Library Scholarship Series is a workshop opportunity designed to foster scholarship to the profession and careers of law librarians. The workshop series is coordinated by Anne Klinefelter, Professor of Law and Director of the Law Library ant UNC School of Law. The paper, The Scholarly Impact Matrix: An Empirical Study of How Multiple Metrics Create and Informed Story of a Scholar's Work was presented virtually to a group of 11 other scholars and law librarians.

From the abstract:

This article analyzes data collected in an empirical study of citation metrics. Between February 1, 2019 and April 30, 2019, the authors collected citation data from Google Scholar, HeinOnline, Westlaw, Lexis, SSRN, and Digital Commons repositories on randomly selected faculty members at U.S. law schools for the purpose of answering questions regarding fit and utility of citation metrics. Analysis of the citation data examines the impact of adoption of scholarly profiles, gender, and stage in the profession, and discipline, on exposure on citation.
