Scholarly Metrics

Scholarly metrics are used to evaluate the impact or influence of a publication or work. Metrics take a variety of forms, which can range from fairly straightforward to very complex.

This guide is designed to assist you in understanding a variety of different metrics, whether it be for general consumption, publishing, or RPT (Reappointment, Promotion, and Tenure). Navigate with the tabs above for information about: journal-level metrics, article-level metrics, online scholarship profiles and IDs, and open access.

We Can Help

Please don't hesitate contact us with questions or ideas! We are always happy to sit down and chat. We regularly have conversations with faculty about demonstrating impact for RPT, increasing access to published and unpublished work, evaluating certain publications, and any other number of topics that might arise in the complicated world of academic publishing.
