Scholarly Research Impact

About Research Impact

This Guide is for researchers interested in enhancing their research impact through author profiles, networks, and publication opportunities. For information about bibliometrics and journal-level research impact, please see our guide Analyzing Publications for Tenure-Track Faculty.

Navigating This Guide

The pages on the left will walk you through formulating a research impact strategy, creating your scholarly profile, open access publishing, and promoting your work. Remember, researchers do not have impact factors! Your impact as a researcher should not be reduced to the metrics of journals you've published in - instead, this should be only part of a holistic view of your work and contributions.
