2022 Libraries Research Impact Challenge Winner Selected

Research Impact Challenge

The Research Impact Challenge, now in its second year, is designed to help UNLV faculty and graduate students increase the impact and reach of their scholarly researching. The five-day event included daily challenges to learn more about citation metrics, altmetrics, and other methods.

Carrie Tyler, assistant professor in the geoscience department, was selected as the winner of the 2022 Libraries Research Impact Challenge. Tyler is co-author of a paper, "Beyond Functional Diversity: The Importance of Trophic Position to Understanding Functional Processes in Community Evolution," published in Digital Scholarship@UNLV, the institutional repository.
