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 our workshop  iSkills: Research Impact – citation analysis tools  on Tuesday 6th June, 10.00-11.30, 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.

Measuring impact: h-index, journal impact factors and altmetrics

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

Bibliometrics 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 5 February 10.00-11.00 at the Radcliffe Science Library. Please book your place online.

WISER: Bibliometrics 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.

Bibliometrics 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 Bibliometrics I: Who’s citing you? first.   The session will take place on Tuesday 5 February 11.15-12.15 at the Radcliffe Science Library.   Please book your place online.
