Measuring the Impact of Research and Scholarly Activity

As a follow-up to the Spring 2013 Learn-All-About-It Luncheon on “The Impact of Accreditation on Scholarship,” members of the RSSC and faculty guests discussed methods of measuring the impact of research and scholarly activity for tenure and promotion purposes. Measures in addition to the number of journal citations were addressed, such as “altmetrics”, which refers to methods of measuring scholarly impact using Web-based social media, such as blogs, data sets, videos, and ResearchGate.
