Introduction to Bibliometrics (Research Staff Development Opportunity)
Bibliometric data are increasingly used in research assessment exercises and in recruitment decisions but they can also give you insights into how your research is being used by others and help you to make informed journal choices. This session will introduce some commonly used bibliometrics and explain how they are calculated and what they mean. The issues behind the responsible use of metrics will also be explored. A hands-on section of the session will use tools such as Scopus, SciVal, Google Scholar and InCites to explore bibliometric data sources. This is a 90 minute session however the last 30 minutes will be allocated for hands on tasks.
