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.

Introducting Bodleian iSkills and Oxford LibGuides for postgraduates and researchers

Bodleian iSkills logoWelcome to Oxford and to the Bodleian Libraries to all our new students and members of staff.

Postgraduates and researchers may be interested in two training initiatives run by the Bodleian Libraries: Bodleian iSkills and Oxford LibGuides.

Bodleian iSkills is a series of workshops designed for postgraduates and researchers.  We cover:

  • Information discovery and finding both primary and secondary resources to support your research
  • Reference management including Endnote, RefWorks, Mendeley and Zotero
  • Keeping up to date with new research
  • Measuring research impact including how to calculate your h-index and find the highest impact journals when you come to publish
  • Open Access publishing and in particular how to comply with Research Council open access mandates and the new HEFCE policy on Open Access for the REF
  • Managing your research data
  • Copyright and looking after your intellectual property
  • Using and presenting geospatial information and data
  • Finding and using images in your research

To view this term’s timetable please visit our iSkills LibGuide.  Bodleian iSkills workshops are free but booking is essential.    All classes are advertised on our iSkills LibGuide, through the @bodleianskills Twitter feed and on this blog.

Oxford LibGuides logoOxford LibGuides  is the home of the Oxford Libraries’ subject and research guides.

Oxford LibGuides provides information on key resources in 303 subject areas, for each subject focussing on the best resources for finding and using primary and secondary research materials in the subject area.  Check out the information for your subject on the LibGuides home page.

In addition, Oxford LibGuides provides guidance on:

 

 

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.
