The National Information Standards Organization (NISO) has published final recommendations regarding alternative metrics that have been developed over the past two years. Publishing these recommendations is only the beginning of the process. To be truly successful, these recommendations need to be adopted into practice. During this talk, Todd will discuss those definitions, the recommendations, and the new altmetrics data quality code of conduct. These publications serve as a point to push forward adoption and next steps to further advance acceptance of new forms of metrics and assessment of new forms of communicating information. Finally, consideration will be given in areas of work that the community still has before us, and audience input will be solicited to create further discussion.
