West Virginia University College of Law Professor Caroline Osborne and Librarian Stephanie Miller won the Outstanding Article Award from the American Association of Law Libraries, Academic Law Libraries Special Interest Section for their article: "The Scholarly Impact Matrix: An Empirical Study of How Multiple Metrics Create an Informed Story of a Scholar's Work". The article was published in volume 39 of Legal Reference Services Quarterly, a peer-reviewed journal.

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, stage in the profession, and discipline on exposure on citation with the conclusion that exposure results in increased citations.
