Support for Researchers

Some new materials have been added to the ‘INSRV for Researchers’ web pages at http://www.cardiff.ac.uk/insrv/forresearchers/index.html

A new section has been added called ‘Managing your research identity and bibliometrics’ – in this section you can find materials discussing:
• Managing your research identity
o Why and how researchers can do this
o Information on using ORCID, Scopus Author Identifier and ResearcherID
• Information regarding the H-Index
o What is it and how can researchers calculate their H-Index
o Comparing the H-Index of individuals
• Information regarding altmetrics
o What are altmetrics and what do they measure?
o Where researchers can find altmetrics

The H-Index is one measure academic staff may be interested in when preparing to apply for a promotion via the University’s Academic Promotions Committee. Other materials academic staff may also be interested in when preparing an application include the impact factor of journals they have published in and the number of citations their publications have received.

There are plans to add more content to this new section of the ‘INSRV for Researchers’ web pages, particularly regarding bibliometrics watch this space for more details.
