Are you a grad student or early-career researcher looking for a toolkit of easily available indicators to help find vetted, trustworthy sources?
Gain familiarity with some of the tools for measuring scholarship and outputs of published research in this helpful workshop. This course is an introduction to common, readily available indicators of research impact as a means of source validation. This includes traditional measures such as journal impact and article metrics, and how these are calculated in sources such as Journal Citation Reports (JCR) and Google Scholar. It is not meant to establish a standard of success with research using only these indicators.
The course also covers emerging metrics/altmetrics, researcher profiles and open access scholarship.
