Upcoming Programs

Highlighting the Impact of Your Research and Scholarly Work

| 12:00 PM - 01:00 PM
The Impact of Research workshop will help you determine the impact of your research through journal impact factors, citations per article, and h-index. Strategies for documenting your impact effectively will also be reviewed. The workshop will also provide a short overview of altmetrics, an alternative to the “traditional” metrics that take into account new methods of impact including social media.
  • Participants will be able to demonstrate an understanding of the different types of metrics to demonstrate impact.
  • Participants will be able to use resources in order to find the impact of journals, articles, and individuals.
