Understanding Bibliometric Data
For all University of Portsmouth Research and Academic Staff
Bibliometric tools enable you to measure and track the reach of your research and the outputs of other researchers. In this workshop the University Library Team will take you through the common bibliometric tools and explain their uses and limitations. You will also have the chance to explore your own bibliometric information. Topics including journal impact factors and equivalents, citation counts, h-indexes and altmetrics will be explained and discussed.
This workshop will enable you to:
