Research impact is a ubiquitous term in academia, and it informs everything from how to write a grant to how you approach marketing yourself as an academic to how a faculty member compiles their dossier.
In this workshop, we will take a closer look at the research impact and scholarly communication environment. This workshop will provide a broad overview, with plenty of time for questions and discussion. Topics include:
- Specific metrics that are used for evaluation, such as the h-index and its derivatives, the Impact Factor, and alternative metrics for nontraditional research products.
- How to use databases to discover information about people and organizations (they're not just for papers!).
- Best practices for working on your own impact goals, including the use of ORCID, the Becker Model, and research profile services.
