Scholars and researchers, academic departments and universities increasingly are asked to explain the impact of their research to external funders and to measure themselves against their peers. Tracking citations and attempting to measure research impact isn’t new, but in recent years the number of available tools has grown significantly.

This webinar will provide information about the various metrics available to support your claims of research excellence, significance and impact.

Topics covered include:

  • how common research metrics are used, their benefits and limitations
  • benchmarking yourself against other researchers to provide context
  • discovering evidence of attention outside of academia (in government policy, for example) that may indicate future impact.

There will be a hands-on aspect to this workshop, allowing participants to work with Scopus, SciVal and Altmetric Explorer to generate their own metrics.

Please ensure that you have either a Scopus ID or ORCID identifier that you can use during the workshop.

Registered participants will be provided with the meeting link.
