Abstract: NISO is undertaking a new two-phase project to study, propose, and develop community-based standards and recommended practices in the field of alternative metrics.The project is funded through a $207,500 grant from the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation. NISO will first hold several in-person and virtual meetings within the community to identify the critical areas where altmetrics standards or recommended practices are needed. This will be followed by a second phase of convening a working group to develop the consensus standards and/or recommended practices prioritized in the community meetings.
