Abstract

The Information Services Office (ISO) at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), a non-regulatory agency within the U.S. Department of Commerce, is working to identify emerging research areas where NIST can have the greatest impact on industry and society. ISO staff analyzed bibliometric data in order to reveal potential topics of interest in water quality metrology, a strategic priority area for NIST’s Material Measurement Laboratory (MML).
