Part of the 'Highlighting, Measuring, and Managing Your Research' workshop series.
Tools like Scopus, Web of Science, and Journal Citation Reports provide indicators of research productivity. Portals like Academia, ResearchGate, Humanities Commons, and Google Profiles allow researchers to share their work and network with other scholars. Zotero, EndNote, and Mendeley make organizing and sharing sources a snap. Publishing in open access venues and posting your research to scholarly repositories can enhance your research impact. Familiarity with these new tools and strategies helps researchers find colleagues, collaborators, and funders, as well as facilitates the tenure and promotion process.
Join us for the fourth session in our 'Highlighting, Measuring, and Managing Your Research' series to gain strategies for identifying and measuring research impact using available online tools. Important buzzwords like citation metrics, impact factors, and the h-index will be explained and applied in a variety of disciplinary contexts.
