Researcher Impact & the Responsible Use of Metrics
This session will focus on research impact (what it is, how it can be measured) at three different levels: journal, article, person. Metrics such as h-index, journal impact factor, times cited, and other measures will be explained and discussed. Traditional metrics as well as altmetrics (e.g, often social media usage) from Web of Science, Scopus, ImpactStory and other databases will be demonstrated with time for hands-on. Over-arching will be a discussion of the responsible use of metrics movement as well as tools and strategies a researcher can use to tell their research impact story.
