Introduction to Using Metrics to Communicate Research Impact

May 8, 2019
10:00 AM–11:30 AM

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.

This workshop is open to all UC San Diego researchers, faculty, staff, and students.
