Bibliometrics, altmetrics and social networks to support your research career development
This session is designed to provide early to mid-career researchers with an introduction to tools and tips on how to present impact of research outputs. The session will introduce new tools designed to help researchers manage their scholarly visibility and reputation and approaches to presenting impact of research outputs using citations and other quantitative measures of impact. We will discuss indicators of impact such as the h-index, the impact factor and normalized citation counts for use by individual researchers who want to use quantitative measures to demonstrate impact of their publications. This workshop is designed for early and mid-career researchers interested in understanding how they can use bibliometric indicators to measure the impact of their published outputs.
