Got Impact? Please join us as we navigate the complicated waters of what we’re calling “scholarly metrics.” Assess the scholarly impact of journals, of individual research articles, and of individual researchers. We’ll show you how to show researchers at your institution how to assess the impact of research in their fields and how to locate and interpret the various metrics that attempt to assess their own individual research and levels of productivity. What’s an “H-Index?” Come see!
This program is worth 1 contact hour of continuing education.
