**FREE June Workshops** - Thomson Reuters Bibliometrics & Research Evaluation

Date of news item: 11 May 2016.

Please find details below of **FREE** Bibliometrics & Research Evaluation workshops co-ordinated by Thomson Reuters. These have been organised at various dates and locations in June. We anticipate that these will be popular and advise anyone from the UK academic community wishing to attend to book a place at their earliest convenience.

Bibliometric analysis is a fast growing method to evaluate research performance at all organisational levels of an academic institution (i.e. paper, author, institution, journal, field, collaborations, etc). Research performance methods are frequently used by all stakeholders within institutions to analyse research performance, identify research trends, determine research output and impact in specific research fields, evaluate collaborations and support informed journal collection development decision making.

Thomson Reuters invites you to an introductory workshop on bibliometrics and their applications. This event is aimed at those who have no or little knowledge of bibliometrics, or who want to know more about how bibliometrics can be applied in order to evaluate research output.

The workshops are open to the following staff within the UK academic community: research analysts, librarians and anyone who has developed an interest in research evaluation.

Topics covered will include:

  • History and development of bibliometrics
  • Data Quality
  • Bibliometric indicators
  • Bibliometrics in action using practical exercises

The workshops will include a combination of presentation, discussion and practical hands-on sessions using InCites and Journal and Highly Cited Data (Journal Citation Reports and Essential Science Indicators on the Incites platform) to give the participants an initial appreciation of what bibliometrics and research evaluation tools can do and how others are using them to promote research impact.
