@tmvogel will be teaching the workshop that is open to all UC San Diego researchers, faculty, students, and staff.
May 8, 2019, 10:00 am – 11:30 am in the UC San Diego Library, Dunst Classroom.
Scholars and researchers are increasingly asked to explain the impact of their research, whether for promotion and tenure, or grant applications and reports, even for visa applications. This workshop will provide an overview of the tools available for gathering citation-based metrics (bibliometrics) and alternative metrics (altmetrics). We will cover their key features and caveats of, and share some examples of how this data can be incorporated into CVs, P&T files, and other places where you want to communicate your scholarly impact. While the focus is on journal articles, metrics for other sources will be briefly covered.
Measuring and Communicating Your Scholarly Impact
Date: May 3, 2018 from 2:00pm – 3:30pm
Venue: BLB Classroom 3
Instructor Information: Teri Vogel, Librarian at the UC San Diego Library
Scholars and researchers, academic departments, and universities increasingly are asked to explain the impact of their research to external funders and to measure themselves against their peers. Tracking citations and attempting to measure research impact isn’t new, but in recent years the number of available tools has grown significantly. In this workshop, you will learn about these available metrics tools, both “traditional” (like Web of Science) and “alternative” (like Altmetric), how to incorporate these into the telling the story of your research impact, and learn some of the ways you can increase your visibility as a scholar. We’ll cover impact metrics for a variety of research and scholarly works, from journal articles and books to datasets.

Scholars and researchers, academic departments, and universities increasingly are asked to disclose the impact of their research to external funders, for promotion and tenure review, and to measure against their peers. While the practice of measuring research impact isn’t new, the availability of new tools and methods of communication has proliferated in recent years. In this workshop, you will learn about these available metrics tools, both “traditional” (like Web of Science) and “alternative” (like Altmetric), how to incorporate these into telling the story of your research impact, and learn some of the ways you can increase your visibility as a scholar. We’ll cover a variety of metrics methods and tools that allow for the communication of impact across the disciplines.
