Digital Scholar Webinar: Using alternative scholarly metrics to showcase the impact of your research

Wednesday, February 7, 2018 at 12:00pm to 1:00pm

This is a past event.


Overview: Scholarship is increasingly being created, disseminated, and measured on social platforms. If Twitter exchanges, Facebook “saves,” and YouTube hits are the new metrics for tracking scholarship, how are we measuring societal and educational impact and outreach? How can researchers display their research impact using social media on promotion and tenure dossiers?

This webinar will discuss altmetrics, alternative scholarly metrics that measure the impact and use of scholarship. We will focus on PlumX, the tool used at USC, which combines traditional and new metrics to paint a comprehensive portrait of your scholarly output and its reach in various communities and with different stakeholders.

Speaker: Caroline Muglia, Co-Associate Dean for Collections and Technical Services, Head, Resource Sharing and Collection Assessment, USC Libraries
