Measuring research impact
Research impact landscape
In addition to traditional bibliometrics, many other factors can be included to demonstrate the impact of research in the community.
- Why you need an ORCID
- Researcher ID
- My Citations – create via a Google account and Google Scholar
- Authorship Guidelines (Harvard)
Alternative Metrics (Altmetrics)
Altmetrics captures public engagement with research. It can include social media mentions, downloads, views, blogging.
