Researcher ID and the h-index

One of the measures now commonly used to assess researcher profiles is the H Factor, a citation index. This is increasingly being used in processes such as assessment of institutions, for instance as a metric to demonstrate excellence of the paediatric theme within UCL Partners, as well as in consideration for senior promotions.

There is a variety of web based tools to calculate H Factor, but each operates differently and therefore gives slightly different results. UCL has opted to use (an e-mail was sent from David Price to encourage all researchers to retrieve this information).

The library is offering clinics on how to register for a Researcher ID, how to find your h-index bd how to create a PDF with the details.

The first clinic is on 12th December 10.00-11.00 in training room 1 of the Institute of Child Health.

More clinics will be offered on demand
