Hardin Open Workshops

Metrics like Impact Factor and h-index are often used to measure the impact that journals, authors, and articles have had on a particular field. But how are these numbers calculated and what do they really mean? In this workshop, you'll learn how to use tools like Journal Citation Reports, Web of Science, Scopus, and Google Scholar to find these metrics. We'll also discuss the importance of thinking critically about what they mean and how they're used.


Class will be held on Zoom. Advance registration is required. Registrants will be emailed the Zoom link 30 minutes before the class time.
