AESIS – Assessing Impact for Science: Methods and Instruments
The Network for Advancing and Evaluating the Societal Impact of Science (AESIS Network) is an international, open community for various types of professionals working on stimulating and demonstrating the impact of science on the economy, culture and well-being.
This course focuses primarily on the questions of how research institutes may develop their own “Impact portfolio” and how they and other institutions can create assessment systems to serve their strategy, and it will create insight into the currently available information systems and methods to assess impact and how to implement this in a research strategy.
Altmetric are delighted to be presenting a talk for the Tools and Methods for Impact Evaluation session at this event.
Thursday 4th November 2021, 13.30 – 14.15 GMT
The talk will discuss creating a plan of engagement after publication, thinking about what you need to do on publication to reach a broader audience, and why this is important. This will be followed by a short demo of the Altmetric Explorer on how the impact of your papers or working groups can be tracked, and then a Q&A.
