This Week From the Library: Research Impact Demystified and Embase

|

Next week the library is offering the following workshops:

Research Impact Demystified (Wed.)

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

Introduction to Embase (Thurs.)

This 30-minute synchronous workshop will introduce faculty, staff, and students to the Embase database. This biomedical database has a number of unique functions to optimize your research, and this workshop will help attendees navigate those options. Though useful to everyone, the workshop will be especially helpful to researchers in the medical device, pharmacology, and basic science fields.
