Scholarly Metrics – tools for measuring scholarship, productivity, and impact
We will examine tools available (both via subscription and free) to those at the University of Idaho in order to gather this data and use it. In research and publication, bibliometrics, scientometrics, informetrics (and their varieties) all deal with quantifying scholarship in order to better understand it. We will generally look at major indicators and some of their strengths and weaknesses, including the impact factor, h-index, and more.
This session will meet online using Zoom!
