Scholarly Publishing

  1. How Related are Journal Impact and Research Impact?
    webinar introducing some concepts around research impact
    Journal impact is usually a synonym for Impact Factors and other scores based on the average number of citations received by a particular journal in a particular period. Journal impact is not an indicator of the quality of individual studies published in that journal. 
    journal impact ≠ academic impact ≠ research impact
    research impact = real world impact
