MyRI (Measure your Research Impact) Online tutorial

MyRI (Measure your Research Impact) is a free online bibliometrics tutorial with supporting learning resources available for re-use and adaptation under a creative commons licence.

MyRI provides online tutorials, datasheets (Resources tab), videos and useful links.

The resources were originally developed by a cross institutional library project team led by University College Dublin with project members from Dublin City UniversityDublin Institute of Technology and Maynooth University. The initial project phase was funded by the Irish National Digital Learning Resource (NDLR) under a funding call specifically aimed at developing innovative learning resources for shared use.

MyRI was officially launched in 2011 and is now managed and maintained by three of the original member Libraries: Dublin City University; Maynooth University and University College Dublin.

Profile not metrics report and webinar April 2019

Webinar: Profiles Not Metrics

Click here to listen to the webinar recording 

Professor Jonathan Adams, Director at the Institute for Scientific Information, a part of Clarivate Analytics talks about the recent ISI report “Profiles not metrics.”  In its recent Global Research Report, the ISI team drew attention to the information that is lost when data about researchers and their institutions are squeezed into a simplified metric or league table. In this webinar, Jonathan Adams will draw on this report and look at four familiar types of analysis that can obscure real research when misused and four alternative visualisations that unpack the richer information that lies beneath each headline indicator.  These four examples cover profiling of individuals, journals, research groups and institutions.
