Using Research Metrics to Enhance the Impact of Your Work
Register: March 6 | March 7
In this workshop, we will show you how to find the number of times an article has been cited, create a citation report for a set of articles or an author, and compare citation statistics for authors, journals or articles in a particular field. We will also discuss emerging metrics (‘altmetrics’), such as the number of times an article has been viewed or downloaded.
Finally, we will show you how to choose the right journal for your manuscript.
