WISER: Bibliometrics: the black art of citation rankings
Friday 15 May2009
Mystified by metrics? Anxious about impact factors? Happy with your h-index? The next research assessment exercise is likely to place heavy emphasis on the use of these measures, so it’s worth getting a grip on them now. This session will endeavour to explain how they work, how they are interpreted and how reliable they are.
The full program for the current term is now available for booking at http://www.ouls.ox.ac.uk/services/training/wiser/trinity2009
Attending these workshops, delivered by subject librarians, will give you an excellent opportunity to gain understanding of the specialist information resources available. These sessions will save you time and make your searches more effective. Please note that individual assistance is also available on request direct from subject librarians.
