News item published on: 2019-09-24 13:48:26

University faculty who are preparing a dossier for pre-tenure review and need to find journal acceptance rates are invited to attend a workshop on how to use the library’s tools to demonstrate the impact of your work.

Participants will leave with an understanding of how to locate metrics including Journal Impact Factors, h-index, Eigenfactor and more and will also gain an appreciation for the limitations of publication metrics and the varied suitability of different metrics for different academic fields and different types of publications. In addition, a brief overview of scholarly identification systems such as ORCID will be presented.

The workshop will be offered in Wednesday, October 16 from 2 to 3 p.m. in Cook Library room 110.
