Making it count: a computational approach to attribution

Kristi Holmes; Karen Gutzman; Patricia Smith; David Eichmann; Melissa Haendel

People from a diverse array of backgrounds play important roles in research, often in ways that cannot be quantified through traditional metrics of scholarly impact. This demands better approaches to evaluate and ultimately communicate scholarly outcomes beyond the narrow criteria of publications and grants. It is imperative to develop a structure to track a much wider diversity of contributor roles and research objects - and do so in a manner that is easily populated with real data. This presentation will share details about the project, our team and approach, upcoming opportunities to collaborate, metrics for success, and integration and application of this work to date.
