Are metrics meaningful? A blog from BioMed Central (@biomedcentral)

Recently, COPE held a seminar on metrics and how they shape publication (mis)behavior. A blog published in the past few days by BioMed Central (and written by Elizabeth Moylan) provides a top-line summary of the key findings from this seminar.

One of the conclusions from the blog is: “As always after a workshop, one is left with questions: what is the take home message and what practical steps should journal editors take? I personally wonder if the growth of metrics will just add to the pressure already put on scientists….”.

The full blog can be found here.
