My RI - Measuring your research impact. Individual researchers.

Research metrics relating to an individual’s published work are used by institutions and funding agencies to help assess someone when:

  • Recruiting
  • Promoting
  • Awarding tenure
  • Awarding grants

It is therefore important that individual researchers are both aware of the metrics used and the data sources from which the metrics are retrieved and understand the issues and limitations of these.
