Tracking and Enhancing Your Research Impact

Oct 4, 2017 (All day)
Deadline: 
Location: 
Research Commons, 3rd floor of 18th Avenue Library

Measuring your impact is an important step in the research process, especially for applying for positions, for promotion and tenure, and for grant funding. This may include traditional factors such as citation counts and journal reputation and new measures that look at the reach and visibility of the work through downloads, saves, and views, as well as mentions in blogs and other social media. This introductory workshop will provide an overview of the following topics:

  • Establishing your author identity using ORCID and researcher IDs
  • Understanding and tracking common metrics such as journal impact factors, h-index, and times cited
  • Understanding and tracking altmetrics (alternative metrics) such as views, downloads, and mentions in online media
  • Enhancing your impact through journal choice and open access, and promoting your work via researcher profiles and online media

Participants are encouraged to bring their own laptop or tablet for hands-on participation.
