Bodleian iSkills: Research metrics and citation analysis tools

Attendees are asked first to watch four short videos and complete a task sheet ahead of the live online session. The videos provide an introduction to citation tracking and bibliometrics. They examine a range of tools for finding journal metrics, article metrics and author metrics in the context of moves towards responsible metrics in measuring the impact of publications and researchers.

In the live online session we will demonstrate how to use:

  • Journal Citation Reports and Scimago Journal Rank to find journals and journal-level metrics
  • Web of Science and Scopus to track count citations and altmetrics to papers
  • Web of Science and Scopus to find your own h-index and author's profile
  • Essential Science Indicators to identify leading research

There will be time for questions and answers in the session. However, you are welcome to email with any questions in advance of the session to ensure we cover issues of particular interest to you.

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