Beyond Citation Counts: Practical Skills for Measuring Research Impact

MLA Webinar
Wednesday, Oct 29, 2014 - 11:00am to 12:30pm

In the highly competitive world of biomedical research, investigators and institutions must be able to demonstrate the significance and importance of their research to academia, the public, and the clinical community.  Librarians can play a vital role in partnering with individuals, groups, and institutions to determine how to track the impact of research.  This webinar will help librarians understand how to find and interpret a variety of traditional and new metrics for assessing research impact, including h-index, percentile ranking, and altmetrics.  The webinar will also provide a brief introduction to tools that can be used to create visualizations to help illustrate research metrics in visually striking and easy-to-understand formats.

A healthy lunch will be provided.
