Live your values. Transform the academy.

HuMetricsHSS

HuMetricsHSS is an initiative that creates and supports values-enacted frameworks for understanding and evaluating all aspects of the scholarly life well-lived and for promoting the nurturing of these values in scholarly practice. Comprised of individuals working in academic and nonprofit academic–adjacent sectors, the HuMetricsHSS team is committed to establishing humane indicators of excellence in academia, focused particularly on the humanities and social sciences (HSS).

You can find more about what we do under Our Work and an example framework and explanation of our values process in Values. History gives an overview of our initiative from its birth at the TriangleSCI workshop in 2016 through to the present. If you are interested in running your own values framework workshop, see our Workshop Kit.

The HuMetricsHSS Initiative is generously supported by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.

This is fun! I did our cowritten @HuMetricsHSS article (https://doi.org/10.1057/s41599-020-00647-z). Now wondering how it might compare to published things by me, @jasonrhody, @cplong, @simosacchi, @rrkennison or Penny Weber alone—but that wouldn't account for editing (by us/peer reviewer/editor). https://twitter.com/pomeranian99/status/1446476370629087237

What does your writing look like if you take out everything *but* the punctuation?

I made a little web tool that lets you do this -- and see what yours looks like: https://link.medium.com/yKpJeyhMbkb

Go give it a try!
