Are you looking for research impact beyond citation counts? Let us help you!

What is the public impact of your research? Where has your research been discussed in the news, and how has it affected policy decisions in local or national government or organizations? Traditionally, measuring the impact of research has been limited to citation counts and other metrics.

Our librarians have expertise in bibliometrics, data visualization, and alternative metrics. We can provide services and reports that can demonstrate the impact of published works for promotion or tenure or the impact of research to departments, schools/colleges or funding agencies.
