Track your impact
Impact is important
Demonstrating impact can assist with funding and promotion applications, publishing strategy, academic CVs and research assessment.
There are a range of tools and approaches for tracking the impact of a researcher, journal or publication.
Learn about measures such as:
- Citation counts and the h-index.
- Reviews, media mentions and awards.
- Altmetrics - publication activity and reach on the social web.
MyRI is a self-paced guide developed by a consortium of Irish universities. It provides a good overview on how you might approach measuring your impact.
