Demonstrating the impact of your scholarly agenda and scholarly output is a nuanced art. There are multi-faceted ways to measure your work’s impact, and a myriad of ways to present it. You can use both quantitative and qualitative measures in demonstrating impact. In an era of constant technological change, there are even more ways to capture evidence of impact.
Librarian Emily Ford has published a new guide that presents instructional information and links to resources for quantitative metrics, including impact measures and citation counts, as well as qualitative evidence that can be gathered via altmetrics tools and social media.
Demonstrate Your Impact includes the following sections:
- What Are Metrics?
- Journal Rankings & Citations
- Social Media & Altmetrics
- Community-Engaged Research
- Where to Publish?
- Manage Your Identity
