Influence and Impact: How to Measure and How to Achieve Maximum Reach for Your Research
Scholars commonly refer to the “impact factor” when referring to the influence any single journal has on the field of research. However, there are now several alternative metrics available to measure influence and impact. In this workshop, participants will learn about how to locate and calculate the various metrics available. This will include measuring the influence and impact of individual journals, single articles and of researchers themselves. Participants will also learn about tools available to track their impact and their published research.
