Research and Bibliometric Assessment (Workshop)

Wed, 02/07/2018 - 10:00am


A variety of tools and methods exist for individual researchers and institutions to analyze research productivity, outputs, and impact. One such tool is InCites, provided courtesy of support from the Office of Research, Industry Liaison Office, and accessible through the University Libraries’ catalog here: Throughout the day, there will be three sessions offered under the theme of Research and Bibliometric Assessment, including a broader overview of citation tracking and research metrics and two sessions exploring various functions of the InCites platform. Participants are encouraged to register for any of the three sessions that they find of interest. Attendees are encouraged to bring their own laptop or tablet for hands-on participation. First-time users are also encouraged to register for a free InCites account prior to the event, and short instructions for doing so are available here: InCites – Signing In.

Session 1: Using InCites for Institutional Research (10:00am – 12:00pm) InCites functions to be covered in this session include: – Institutional benchmarking – Departmental comparisons – Change in research performance in a field over time – Funding agencies supporting work in a particular field – Collaboration tools and analyses

Session 2: Citation Tracking and Research Metrics (2:00 – 3:00pm) Learn how to track citations to your work and gather research metrics such as h-index, journal impact factors, and alternative metrics. This hands-on workshop will center on tools such as Web of Science, Journal Citation Reports, Scopus, Google Scholar, and altmetric information available from Altmetric and PlumX. This session will be led by Nancy Courtney, Research Impact Librarian.
