Be proactive about how you choose to promote your scholarship and share research. There are many ways to accomplish this using tools specific to your discipline, academia in general, or using social media.
This LibGuide will help you identify common research metrics that are used to measure scholarly impact. This guide also outlines methods and tools you can use to identify journals in your field for publishing.
The Metrics Toolkit is a resource for researchers and evaluators that provides guidance for demonstrating and evaluating claims of research impact. With the Toolkit you can quickly understand what a metric means, how it is calculated, and if it is a good match for our impact question.
This guide will walk you through some of the steps we went through in the seminar so that you can explore them in more detail. You can also find handouts, links, and other guides we talked about in the morning sessions here. If you have additional questions, please feel free to contact one or all of the instructors on this page.
