Measuring and Communicating Your Scholarly Impact

Date: May 3, 2018 from 2:00pm – 3:30pm  

Venue: BLB Classroom 3

Registration

Instructor Information: Teri Vogel, Librarian at the UC San Diego Library

Workshop Description:
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.

If the date & time for the workshop does not fit your schedule, contact us to schedule a special session for you or your department.

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.
