Electronic Resources in Academic Context: Return on Investment

In an economy of web and digital scientific information, the value of
information is defined by its use. The Elico study of return on investment
(ROI) identifies the impact of the usage of electronic journals on the
activity of publishing articles by university-affiliated researchers. In
particular, it analyzes the impact of the usage of electronic journals on
the scientific production (publications, citations) by domain and type of
institution. It develops indicators of causal relationships between usage,
publications and citations, and analyzes the evolution of the phenomena of
causality in time.

The French research team conducted by Cherifa Boukacem-Zeghmouri (Lyon)
will present and discuss the results of this study February 20-21, 2014,
at Lyon (France). Organized by the Elico laboratory and the French
academic consortium Couperin, the meeting will bring together scientists
from the USA (Lib-Value), UK (e-journals: use, value, impact) and France
who have published on return on investment in academic and public
libraries. English will be the working language.

Morning: Presentation of the methodology of our studies (Lib-Value,
e-journals: use, value, impact, ROI Elico)
