Abstract

The National Institute of Standards and Technology’s (NIST) mission is to “promote U.S. innovation and industrial competitiveness.” To meet this mission, NIST scientists produce a great variety of scientific and technical outputs. This paper present results from a novel effort to measure usage and impact of a more complete set of these technical outputs including patents, publications, data software, reference materials and a variety of additional formal and informal scientific outputs.
