Abstract

The new book of Informetrics, Becoming Metric-Wise, written by Rousseau, Egghe and the new blood Raf Guns, seeks to make researchers and students from disciplines especially other than Information Science aware of how the indicators and other metrics used to evaluate their research and research units actually function. The authors see it as a guide to make fellow researchers metric-wise – but I also regard it a kind of manifesto within the field of Informetrics. I will return to that below.
