Altmetrics in the Creative Arts

Alternative metrics, or ‘Altmetrics’, help track views, mentions, and downloads of research outputs. In the creative arts, research outputs not only include journal articles and books, but also incorporate other formats including performances, productions and exhibitions. Altmetrics can therefore be utilised to form a better picture of how great an impact a researcher’s output has made. This is a hands on workshop, that will assist researchers in understanding what altmetrics are, how they are collected and measured, and how they are interpreted. A number of altmetric tools will be explored, and there will also be tips on enhancing altmetrics using social media.

Date: Tuesday, 28 August 2018

Venue: Digital Studio, Hub Building

Setting up your ORCID and other researcher profiles

Researcher profiles make it easy for funding agencies, collaborators and colleagues to find you. These online author identifiers can ensure that your work is correctly attributed and showcase the impact of your research. This workshop is designed for researchers in Fine Arts and Music, and we will show you how to sign up and edit your ORCID, Researcher ID, Scopus and Google Scholar profiles. Bring your own device for this session.
