Call for Papers "Performance Measurement and Metrics"

Performance Measurement and Metrics (PMM)
is now accepting manuscripts for a special theme issue entitled, “Organizational assessment, restructuring, and evidence-based management” to be published December 2014 as volume 15(3).

Key Dates: Submission deadline is August 15, 2014. Completed manuscripts of 6000 words will be due September 15, 2014.
Performance Measurement and Metrics (PMM) is a leading quarterly, double-blind refereed, international journal, charting new qualitative and quantitative developments and techniques for measurement and metrics in Library and Information Science (LIS).
It provides an international forum for cross-discipline information professionals, whether practitioners or academics.

 Evidence-based decision making and organizational assessment are very important to the operation of academic libraries. Library leaders need to be equipped with the best evidence from data, research, and evaluation in order to justify performance outputs for accreditation compliance and meet the sometimes ambiguous institutional-level standards for funding purposes. The guest editor also welcomes the following topics relevant to the issue:

·         Organizational assessment

·         Organizational restructuring

·         Job description review

·         Institutional role of library

·         Library’s role in accreditation – regional and programmatic

·         Assessment of collections for accreditation

·         Collection usage metrics and analysis

·         Assessment of learning/ information literacy

·         Assessment planning

·         Organizational performance evaluation

·         Organizational effectiveness
