Research Impact for Early Career Investigators

This workshop is open to faculty and staff.

This session will cover the most prominent citation metrics that junior faculty should be aware of, including H-Index, Journal Impact Factor, and alternative metrics. It will introduce tools available at U-M for accessing metrics and creating simple visualizations to support your impact statements, such as Altmetric Explorer for Institutions, Scopus, and Web of Science. Additional topics will include common misconceptions about metrics, best practices when using metrics, and techniques for enhancing impact.
