Learn about tools used to measure the impact of articles, journals and individual scholars. The traditional measure was the impact factor. It has been joined by the h-index, Eigenfactor score, SJR, and citation analysis as well as emerging metrics, collectively known as altmetrics, which largely rely on crowdsourcing data. We’ll discuss a variety of tools, where you can find them, when it is appropriate to use them and when it is not.

Time: 12:00pm – 1:00pm
Presenter: Pamela Bagley
Location: DHMC, Auditorium A

Web of Science Workshop

If you are a researcher in the life sciences, there are good reasons to complement your MEDLINE search with a Web of Science search. First, Web of Science offers wider coverage of the literature in terms of subject areas, time (from 1900 to present) and type of literature (journal articles, meeting abstracts, patents and more). Second, Web of Science has some features not found in MEDLINE. For instance, you can do citation searching (which articles cited a particular article) and use the analyze tool to categorize your results by author, institution, year and more. This workshop will provide you with an overview of Web of Science, including tips and techniques for effectively searching this multidisciplinary database.

Date and Time: Wednesday, December 14, 2011 from 12:00 to 1:00 PM
Teacher: Pamela Bagley
Location: Matthews-Fuller Library, DHMC 5th floor
