Workshop: Research and Bibliometric Assessment with InCites
Date: April 5, 2017
Location: Research Commons
Invitees: Faculty, postdocs, students

InCites is a web-based research evaluation tool that allows for the analysis of institutional productivity and benchmarking of research output against peers worldwide. It is provided courtesy of support from the Office of Research’s Industry Liaison Office (ILO).

InCites data can be useful in research and bibliometric assessment at both the institutional and individual researcher level, and the online platform includes visualization and reporting tools for easily creating and sharing such information.

Join the ILO’s Business and Intelligence Mapping team for a hands-on training session and learn more about how you might use InCites in your own work. There will be two sessions throughout the day covering different functions within InCites, and participants are free to register for one or both sessions.

Session 1: Using InCites for Institutional Research (11 a.m.-12:30 p.m.)

Topics include:

  • Institutional benchmarking
  • Departmental comparisons
  • Change in research performance in a field over time
  • Funding agencies supporting work in a particular field

Session 2: Using InCites for the Individual Researcher (2-3:30 p.m.)

Topics include:

  • Article level metrics for faculty research
  • Identifying journals in which researchers are cited the most
  • Collaboration tools and analyses
