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 Wednesday 11 November 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 in the Sciences and Social Sciences and will take place in the training room at the Radcliffe Science Library. Please be sure to book your place online.

Measuring Research Impact

Want to calculate your h-index or find the most highly cited journals? Come along to our WISER workshop: Research Impact – citation analysis tools, on Wed 4 June 11.00 – 12.00.

We give an introduction to citation tracking and bibliometrics, using a range of ‘impact factor’ tools to find top journals and conferences, count citations and measure the impact of publications and researchers. We explain their strengths and weaknesses, and how to access them. We cover: Journal Citation Reports, SCImago Journal Rank, Web of Science, Scopus, Google Scholar, Essential Science Indicators, ORCID, and more.

Key topics will include:

  • Journal and conference rankings and metrics
  • Citation counts for articles and books
  • Altmetrics
  • Top papers and researchers
  • Calculating your h-index
  • Creating a researcher profile

This session is aimed at researchers, academics, research support staff and research postgraduates, especially in Sciences and Social Sciences.

Measuring research impact

Want to calculate your h-index or find the most highly cited journals? If so, come along to Bodleian Libraries research impact workshops next week…

WISER Research Impact I: Who’s citing you? will introduce citation tracking as a technique for finding out who is citing your work using Web of Science, Scopus and Google Scholar.  The session will cover how to track citation using the three tools and the pros and cons of each.    We will also include time for you to try out each tool to find citations to your own work.  This session will take place on Tuesday 12 November 14.00-15.00 at the Radcliffe Science Library. Please book your place online.

WISER Research Impact II – Tools of the Trade will focus in on using Web of Science and Scopus to calculate h-indexes, find highly cited journals and to measure the impact of individual institutions and countries.    In addition we will look at using Essential Science Indicators to find “hot” papers and authors and the use of altmetrics to measure downloads and mentions in social media.

WISER Research Impact II – Tools of the Trade is aimed at academics, researchers, administrators and librarians in the Sciences.      If you are unfamiliar with citation tracking please attend Research Impact I: Who’s citing you? first.   The session will take place on Tuesday 12 November 15.15 – 16.15 at the Radcliffe Science Library.   Please book your place online.
