Building a Case for Impact - Citation Counts, Almetrics, and Reviews In-Person / Online

Need to show your research has made an impact?  There are many ways you can show how your work has been received.  Come learn about a few of the most popular.



Citation analysis: A wide-ranging area of bibliometrics that studies the citations to and from documents.  Citation analysis applies various techniques such as citation counts that can help establish scholarship influence and patterns.

Journal Impact Factor: The number of cited articles in a particular journal may be used to demonstrate the relative importance of that journal within a discipline or specialty area.

Altmetrics: The study and use of non-traditional scholarly impact measures that are based on activity in web-based environments. As scholarship increasingly moves online, these metrics track associated interactions and activity to generate fine-grained data, allowing researchers and policy makers to create a higher resolution picture of the reach and impact of academic research.
