New LibGuide: Measuring research impact

The Library has launched a new LibGuide called Measuring Research Impact. This LibGuide describes bibliometric tools and resources that JCU researchers can use to track their research and the research of others. This includes:
  • Citation databases
  • Journal evaluation sites
  • The h-index
  • Tools to identify and collate publications
  • Databases that benchmark the performance of research groups.
The LibGuide also explains:
  • Why it is important to be able to measure research impact e.g. for grant and promotion applications
  • Issues to be aware of – each tool has advantages and disadvantages.
For more information, contact the Research Services Librarian – Jackie Wolstenholme.
