Bibliometrics poster


Research metrics have expanded from journal-level impact factors to a variety of other measures such the h-index to help researchers identify quality scholarly research, inform publication decisions, and assess research-related outputs. This workshop will include an overview of different metrics and library-supported tools, including Scopus and SciVal, that enable researchers to protect their scholarly identity, consolidate research activities, and accurately report individual indices.
