(In-person) Research Metrics: Uses and Limitations

In this session, you will learn the meanings of different types of research metrics: journal-level (such as the Journal Impact Factor and the Scimago Journal Rank), author-level (such as the h-index) and article-level (such as citation counts) metrics. Altmetrics, alternatives to traditional citation-based metrics, will also be discussed. Additionally, you will learn about the limitations of research metrics and how to use them responsibly.
