Say Hello to The Metrics Toolkit! A New Resource to “Help Navigate the Metrics Landscape”

This new resource went live earlier today.

From the Metrics Toolkit About Page

The Metrics Toolkit provides evidence-based information about research metrics across disciplines, including how each metric is calculated, where you can find it, and how each should (and should not) be applied.  You’ll also find examples of how to use metrics in grant applications, CVs, and promotion dossiers.


The Metrics Toolkit was developed thanks to the 2016 Force11 PitchIt! Innovation grant, as well as support from OHSUIUPUI, and Altmetric.
