Get Cited or Perish: Citation Metrics for Tenure, Promotions & Grants

Increasingly, citations to one’s publications are being used as part of the evaluation of dossiers, departments, and even in the evaluation of grants. Hence, it is important to not only figure out where to publish, but also how to get cited and accurately count those citations.

This workshop will give you insight into tools such as Web of Science and Google Scholar so that you can better understand the contribution your research has made to the scientific literature.

You will learn how to find specific metrics like the h-index and journal impact factors.
