Publishing and measuring impact

Maximise the visibility of your research to a global audience.

Metrics and impact

The Metrics and Impact Guide introduces you to benchmarking performance using metrics such as journal quartiles, normalised citation impact (NCI) and altmetrics. Distinguish yourself from other researchers and increase the visibility of your work with author profiles such as ORCiD.

Open access
