Researchers may need to establish the impact or influence of their research. This impact may include academic influence, as well as economic or societal impact on the community.
This guide describes the different ways you can:
Consider establishing a Researcher Profile to promote your research and explore opportunities for collaboration
The Charles Sturt University Research Productivity Index (staff only access) allocate points depending on type of publication. The SciMago Journal Rank is also influencing how many points an article receive.
The Metrics Toolkit is a guide to understanding how different research impact metrics are calculated, what each metric means, and how to effectively use the different metrics that are available.
Research Impact Things - The International Association of University Libraries (IATUL) has developed a self-paced training and development tool in which looks at Research Impact. While the tool is aimed at librarians, other people that is interested in research impact might find the tool useful.
When writing about your grant application it’s important to think about who is going to read it and under what conditions. You want your application written in a way that’s easy to understand and quickly digestible. There are a number of techniques you can use to achieve this:

Researchers submitting grant funding applications and/or seeking academic promotion may request a Research Metrics Report from the Library. Research Metrics Reports for grant funding will be given priority during times of high demand (start of teaching session for example).
Reports for academic promotion will need a few weeks notice. The library will provide an initial Research Metrics Report for academics, and will provide advice and training for academics to update their Report for future reuse. The Library offers Research Metrics and Impact training in the Office of Research Services Professional Development Calendar.
The report prepared by faculty librarians collates information about a researcher and metrics related to their research outputs, including their profiles. We pull key data from these, so it is important to keep CRO and your profiles up to date (this includes adding your media and news reports, and government publications or agency reports.)
We gather relevant data:
