Measuring and monitoring the impact of your research
Grant applications may require evidence of your research impact. The University Library can assist your analysis of publications in the following ways:
- Research Impact Advisory Service for University staff – research librarians can assist with publication citation analysis and other metrics to support grant proposals.
- Research Impact Guide – learn more about citation impact, journal impact, book impact, h-index and other measures.
