Who's Citing You? Good Citation Practices

Next workshop: By request. Please contact librarian Michael White for more information.

The Library's collection of citation-tracking databases offers new search and analytical capabilities that can help you understand the impact of your research over time. Knowing where and how often your work is being cited is useful when preparing grant applications, applying for a new academic or research position, preparing a tenure or promotion portfolio and deciding where to submit an article for publication. Bring your current CV or list of publications. The following topics will be covered:

  • How to search citations in Web of Science and Google Scholar
  • How to create a citation search alert
  • How to create a personal citation report
  • How to calculate your h-index and other citation metrics
