You may be interested in various activities that I've profiled in my _Scholarship 2,0_ blog: 
Scholarship 2.0 is devoted to describing and documenting the forms, facets, and features of alternative Web-based scholarly publishing philosophies and practices. The variety of old and new metrics available for assessing the impact, significance, and value of Web-based scholarship is of particular interest.

Subject: [Air-L] Rethinking Promotion and Tenure Criteria in the Digital Age

A task force is preparing a document for the Faculty Senate at UMass Amherst
on scholarship in the digital age. We talk about lots of vexing issues with
respect to old and new or emerging reward structures, the economics of
publishing, etc. Most of the members are library-centric scholars, or actual
I find myself tasked with drafting the section on promotion and review
considerations. In particular, I have been asked to show some examples where
universities, schools, colleges or specific departments have found new types
of scholarly artifacts worthy of recognition. If you know of an example
where the traditional consideration of books and articles in top tier
journals is being augmented with other types of uniquely digital
contributions, please let me know directly.

I will share the results of this survey with the list when it is complete.

Many thanks,
