Scholarly Impact

This guide was created to help faculty determine the impact that their research, etc. has had.

Welcome

Discovering and understanding one's research impact can be a complex endeavor.  The guide’s goal is to help faculty members applying for promotion and tenure or grant funding to make the case for excellence in scholarship by using tools such as citation analysis, journal metrics, and other methods. Newer faculty who are just starting to publish can also benefit by using these tools to develop effective publishing strategies.
