You're writing your first article and you aren't sure which journals to submit it to, or you are in a tenure-track position and you’ll need to include an author-level metric in your dossier. In this workshop, we will learn how to distinguish between numerous metrics, including impact factor, h-index, and altmetrics and we’ll get hands-on practice using some of the research metric tools. http://guides.library.illinois.edu/impact
