Research Analytics: Evidence your strengths

How to use publishing and citation data to evidence your strengths, develop your publishing strategy and make connections

When and why?

Do you need to present your publishing track record for a funding application, promotion case or job application? Or to report on the achievements of your research group?

There's a wealth of publishing, citation and attention data you can draw on to evidence your strengths. Quantitative indicators can never substitute for expert judgment in research assessment, but used responsibly they can reinforce and evidence the expert narrative you provide about your track record. Make sure you follow the University of Bath's Principles of research assessment and management.

The SciVal: Present your Research Strengths handout gives a quick guide to using SciVal to benchmark and present the strengths of your publishing track record.
