Understanding Your Research Impact: An Overview of Traditional & Alternative Metric Assessment Tools
10:30 a.m.-11:30 a.m., March 12, 2020, Zurack Family High-Technology Collaboration Center
Have you ever wondered about the impact of your research? There are a variety of formulas and tools available to measure research impact and it can be confusing trying to figure out where to go. Whether you are just curious about how it works or you’re looking to add data to your tenure packet or grant application, this workshop can help. Both traditional bibliometrics and altmetrics will be covered, providing you an understanding of the differences and showing you how to go about finding your own research impact.
Creating an Online Research Profile: How to Promote & Manage Your Research for Improved Academic Communication
12:30 p.m.-2:00 p.m., March 12, 2020, Zurack Family High-Technology Collaboration Center
Research profiles can broaden the reach of your work, increase your research impact, help you connect with those doing related work, and provide a place to organize all of your work. Join us as we discuss the broad range of research profile services. Topics covered include, but are not limited to, services such as ORCID, Research Gate, Binghamton ORB, and social media. We’ll cover their uses, benefits, drawbacks, and how to make your own accounts.
