This guide directs you to the key tools for measuring your research impact. Impact metrics can be of use in:
Try your relevant Divisional tab. If you are part of a multidisciplinary team or work across Divisions, dip into as many tabs as you think might be helpful.
If you have any questions, contact your Subject Librarian. They will be very happy to help!
Subject Librarians can work with academics and postgraduate students, individually or as a group, to discuss the best research measurement tools for your discipline. Workshops for postgraduates, on and off campus, are held throughout the year.
The Library offers training on using research measurement tools, including Publish or Perish to analyse Google Scholar data. This will be of particular interest if your work has limited representation in Web of Science or Scopus.
SciVal allows you to assess research performance by country, institution, research groups and individuals.
Contact your Subject Librarian now for access to, and support with this powerful research impact product, whether you are working in management or research, or updating your research profile.
Avoid publication pitfalls and increase your readership.
