Mark Patterson, Executive Director, eLife Sciences Publications, UK, gave this presentation during the EIFL General Assembly in 2013 as part of the "Trends to Watch" session.

Patterson lists those that are concerned with research assessments: institutions, researchers, funders, librarians, policy makers, publishers, the public. He defines the impact factor and talks about new metrics and indicators of scholarship, before going over the guidelines of the San Francisco Declaration on Research Assessment (DORA) for each of the groups concerned by research assessment.
