Next Week from the Library: Research Impact Demystified and Systematic Reviews


Next week the library is offering the following workshops:

Research Impact Demystified (Wed.)

Impact factors, citation counts, scholarly profiles, oh my!

Join me for a 1 hour discussion of scholarly research impact metrics. We will discuss common metrics, their advantages and limitations, and sources for those metrics. We will also learn how to match metrics to purpose by looking separately at journal, publication, and author level measures. By the end of this workshop you should be able to:

  • identify examples, purpose, and limitations of both common and alternative metrics, and sources for those metrics
  • understand journal vs article vs author level metrics
  • choose and compile the correct metrics for your purpose
  • track and enhance your visibility and impact with online profiles and scholarly IDs


So You Want to Do a Systematic Review (Thurs.)

Systematic Reviews as research output are increasingly popular, but can be overwhelming in scope and detail. This one hour workshop provides an introduction to the process, guidelines, and best practices to consider as you undertake a systematic review project. Come and learn about systematic reviews and how the Library’s Systematic Review Service can assist you with your review needs.
