Bibliometrics: measuring the impact of research
Bibliometrics is an increasingly important way to measure the quality of journals, researchers and even whole departments or universities. Drawing data mainly from Web of Science, Scopus or Google Scholar these include Impact Factors, the H-index and more complex metrics from SCImago and Eigenfactor.
This training, delivered by staff from the University Library, consists of these key strands:-
•Using metrics to decide the likely impact of publishing in specific journals;
•Metrics to track how your work is being cited.
What you can expect to learn:-
•A greater knowledge of some key services;
•An understanding of the importance and key principles of bibliometrics.
