Scholarly Research Impact

Introduction to Scholarly Research Impact

This guide is designed to introduce Belmont University researchers to available tools used to measure scholarly research impact as well as tools to enhance your scholarly profile. 

There are many approaches to research impact metrics; this guide is focused on those metrics available to Belmont Library users and those freely available online. 

This guide does not address non-scholarly impact of research such as community, economic, or social. Policy impact is included in the Author Metrics tab.
