Does the journal impact factor cause more harm than good? Come hear the
arguments for and against it as the popular debate session from the annual
Charleston Library Conference makes its online debut!

The debate will be conducted in general accordance with Oxford Union rules.
All in the audience will vote their opinion on the resolution before the
debate begins and the vote totals will be recorded. Each speaker will offer
a formal opening statement, followed by a response to the other’s
statement, and then we’ll open the floor to discussion by taking questions
from the audience.

At the conclusion of the debate, another vote will be taken. The winner of
the debate is the one who causes the most audience members to change their

t’s always a spirited and humorous, but good-natured, crossfire. We hope
you can join us!
