Using metrics to demonstrate the impact and reach of your research output

Lectorial Room II (556), Arts West, The University of Melbourne, Royal Parade, Parkville


Scopus and SciVal can be used to quantify the academic impact of your research works, demonstrating the impact of and engagement with your research in health sciences. See how these tools can be customised to put your metrics into context and create a more powerful impact story. Find out how you can monitor and report on the media and social media impact of your work with Altmetric Explorer.

In this session we want you to explore your own profiles and areas of expertise, so please create an account by clicking the sign in button on the SciVal page prior to the session and bring your laptop along so you can participate in the demonstrations with your own profile.
