This new 16 page guide, How to Track the Impact of Research Data with Metrics, from the Digital Curation Centre (DCC) was recently published online.
From the Guide:
This guide will help you to track and measure the impact of research data, whether your own or that of your department/institution.
It provides an overview of the key impact measurement concepts and the services and tools available for measuring impact. After discussing some of the current issues and challenges, it provides some tips on increasing the impact of your own data.
This guide should interest researchers and principal investigators working on data-led research, administrators working with research quality assessment submissions, librarians and others helping to track the impact of data within institutions.
The guide was written by Alex Ball and Monica Duke from the DCC and can be accessed:
