Research impact – how to find high-impact journals and demonstrate your own research impact

Looking for high impact journals and conferences? Need to demonstrate research impact? Wondering about your h-index?

Being able to identify high impact journals and to measure and demonstrate your own research impact and h-index are key skills which are increasingly important when applying for funding and in some case research positions.   One way of measuring impact is to count, track and anaylse citations to published works.   A number of tools exist to facilitate this but can be tricky to use.

Bodleian Libraries will be running a workshop ‘iSkills: Research Impact – citation analysis tools’  on Thursday 23rd November 14.00-15.30, to help you to use citation data to measure and demonstrate impact.  We will be covering  Journal Citation Reports, CiteScore Journal Metrics, 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.

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.

Have you got your researcher ORCID ID yet?

ORCID iDs are unique researcher identifiers that are increasingly important for linking researchers with their publications and grants.

It’s really important to have one, because they are now required by many funders and publishers and because they are very useful in ensuring that all your publications are attributed to you correctly.  This has sometimes been a challenge in the past, where an individual researcher’s publications might end up being listed  under 2,  3 or even more variants of their name (for example John Brown, J Brown, JE Brown, John E Brown etc).    Publications being listed under different names can have serious implications for your H-Index and other metrics but this is easily resolved by using an ORCID ID because the ORCID ID is a unique and unambigous identifier linking you and your publications.   You can use it throughout your life, even when you move institutions.

If you haven’t got an ORCID ID yet, why not come along to our briefing, Bodleian iSkills: ORCID IDs and the ‘ORCID at Oxford’ service where you can find out more and sign up to get your ORCID ID. The session will take place on Monday 29th February 14.15-14.45.  Booking is essential.

 

Measuring research 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.
