Open Access

Research Impact

There are several tools available to help researchers maximize the impact of their research. Researchers may want to:

  • sign up for an ORCID id, a unique persistent digital identifier that ensures that distinguishes them from others with similar names and creates an authoritative record of a researcher’s work that is interoperable with many granting and publishing systems.
  • set up profiles in ResearchID and/or Google Scholar to track citations to their published work and view associated metrics.
  • use tools like Altmetric it to track non-traditional impacts of their research.
  • consult Journal Citation Reports (JCR) when making decisions about choosing a journal for publication.
