Description

Bibliometrics and Altmerics: Metrics for Impact and Publishing

John Novak, Head of Scholarly Communications Initiatives, and Cory Tucker, Head of Continuing Resources & Collections, will offer an introductory workshop on bibliometrics and altmetrics, outlining a variety of measurements including journal impact factors, author level impact, and article level impact.

This session will cover specific measurements such as the Journal Citation Report, Eigenfactor, Hirsch Index, SJR, and altmetrics.com. The session will include a review of University Libraries resources available that provide bibliometric and altmetric information. Using case studies and examples, attendees will see how altmetrics and bibliometrics can demonstrate the reach and impact of scholarship, as well as determine top journals in a specific discipline.
