WISER sessions next week: bibliometrics

Would you like to know more about bibliometrics? Two WISER sessions next week will introduce citation searching and show you how to use bibliometrics to calculate your research impact. (Please note that the second session is aimed primarily at those working in the sciences or social sciences.)

WISER: Bibliometrics I - Who's citing you?

An introduction to citation tracking as a tool for finding out who has cited your work.  We will cover citation tracking using Web of Science, Scopus and Google Scholar and will include time for you to use each tool to find citations to your own work.
