Bodleian iSkills for the Medical Sciences Division and OUH staff: Introduction to Research Impact

During this introduction to citation tracking and bibliometrics we will use a range of 'impact factor' tools to find top journals and conferences, count citations and measure the impact of publications and researchers.

Subjects to be covered include:

  • Understanding the main issues involved in using citation analysis to measure impact
  • Using Journal Citation Reports and CiteScore Journal Metrics to find journal impact factors
  • Using Web of Science, Scopus and Google Scholar to track and count citations to papers and individual researchers
  • Calculating your own h-index
  • Measuring impact using altmetrics
  • Creating a researcher profile and using ORCID IDs to identify your work

Intended Audience:  Researchers, Academics, Research Support Staff and Research Postgraduates in the Medical Sciences.
