In a competitive research environment, researchers need to effectively disseminate the results of their research to:

  • Provide evidence of research impact
  • Measure and track uptake of research by peers
  • Support personal reputation and career advancement
  • Enhance bids for funding
  • Demonstrate institutional and national research performance

Event details: Thursday 31st May, 12 – 1 pm, Wolfson Suite, Harold Cohen Library

Although citation and publication cultures vary across disciplines, citations are increasingly being used as a measure of research impact. This session will consider techniques to boost your citations and get your research read and introduce the tools available via Web of Knowledge, Scopus and Google Scholar to identify and measure your personal citations.

This is an introductory session aimed at researchers new to bibliometric tools. It relates to the Knowledge and intellectual abilities and the Engagement, influence and impact domains of the Researcher Development Framework. Please REGISTER
