Workshop Details
As research funding becomes more competitive, institutions are getting more strategic about how they support their research talent, identify potential areas for growth and position themselves in the UK and global arena. Bibliometrics is an essential tool in conducting in-depth analyses of your institution’s role in research, as well as producing focused snapshots that showcase particular aspects of research performance and impact.
During the session Clarivate Analytics will demonstrate how Bibliometric analysis is being used by the community at strategic levels.
