Measuring personal research impact : bibliometrics
Lee, Stacey L.W. (author) (presenter)
Increasingly, publishers are compiling and making publicly available bibliometrics, such as citation counts, related to works published by academic researchers. As these metrics have become more common, they have also shown a corresponding increase in being used in a variety of ways to demonstrate, and to predict, the impact that a given researcher or team of researchers have or could have in their discipline. This presentation explores the major types of bibliometrics that you are likely to encounter as a researcher, how they can be used to demonstrate impact, the potential problems that can arise if they are used inappropriately, and how you can prevent some of those problems from occurring.
