Researcher metrics

Metrics can measure the contribution or impact you have made in your field or discipline. Research funders will expect you to show the impact of your research.

Before you start to measure your impact, identify why you are measuring your impact to help you determine if there are any specific types of data required or excluded. Make sure you understand the publishing and impact norms within your discipline so you can interpret your metrics data and tell the impact story of your research in context. Library staff provide support with measuring your research metrics.

There are different ways to measure your impact.
