Publishing and Bibliometrics

Publishing Supports

The University of Alberta Libraries offers various publishing supports:

Measuring Impact and Bibliometrics

University of Alberta researchers have access to various publication databases (including Web of Science, Scopus, and Google Scholar) to assist in measuring their research impact through citation analysis. Coverage of journals and materials varies between databases.

One of the first steps to measuring your impact is to ensure that your research contributions are attributed to you. An ORCID iD is a unique digital identifier that can ensure this is done correctly. The Faculty of Medicine & Dentistry strongly encourages their researchers to obtain an ORCID iD.
