iSkills: Research metrics and citation analysis tools: Part 2 article and researcher metrics
In this session we will examine article and researcher level metrics. We will discuss how citation counting can help identify influential papers in particular fields and how altmetrics provide a different perspective on research output. Using tools such as Web of Science, Google Scholar and Scopus you will learn how to calculate a researcher h-index. The session will also allow you to appreciate the limitations of different metrics and the importance of their cautious interpretation. By the end of the session you will be familiar with: using Web of Science, Scopus and Google Scholar to track and count citations to papers and individual researchers; measuring impact using altmetrics; calculating your own h-index; creating a researcher profile and using ORCID IDs to identify your work; and issues and recommendations for using citation analysis to measure impact for articles and authors.
