This session will provide an introduction to common publication metrics (e.g., H-Index, Journal Impact Factor) used to quantify and demonstrate scholarly impact. Participants will leave with an understanding of citation-based metrics, alternative metrics, some of the tools used to gather this data (e.g., Scopus, Altmetric Explorer, Michigan Research Experts), and guidelines for best practices when using metrics in evaluating scholarly impact. Topics covered will include publication metrics related to individual researchers, research groups, and journals, and their respective strengths and limitations
