Research impact – how to measure and demonstrate impact

Being able to demonstrate research impact is increasingly important when applying for funding and even in some cases research positions.   One way of measuring impact is to count, track and anaylse citations to your published works or to those of your department or research group.

Bodleian Libraries will be running our workshop  iSkills: Research Impact – citation analysis tools  on Thursday 3rd March 14.00-15.30 to help you to use citation data to measure and demonstrate impact. We will be covering  Journal Citation Reports, SCImago Journal Rank, Web of Science, Scopus, Google Scholar, Essential Science Indicators, Altmetrics and ORCID and will look at how to find highly cited journals and conferences as well as how to measure the impact of individual researchers including calculating the h-index.

This session is for researchers, research support staff and research postgraduates, especially in the Sciences and Social Sciences. Please be sure to book your place online.

How do I rate thee? Let me count the tweets!

Don’t forget that this week, Mike Taylor from Elsevier Labs will be talking about measuring impact using altmetrics in his talk “How do I rate thee? Let me count the tweets”.  Mike’s talk will discuss altmetrics in relation  to open access, social impact and Orcid and will look at why it’s got a long journey to become truly significant

The talk will take place on Wednesday 11th December 14.00-15.00 at the Radcliffe Science Library. Please book your place online.
