Introducing Web of Science Author Impact Beamplots: a new way to understand the citation impact of an author’s research

Solution Consultant

Following best practices for research evaluation can be complex, and sometimes seem impossible at scale. Every researcher, librarian, research office, institution, funder, and government department has a role to play in improving the current research culture and academic rewards system. To support the research community to practice more responsible research evaluation, we’re excited to introduce Web of Science™ Author Impact Beamplots.

Watch this webinar to:

  • Find out the importance of reforming research assessment and encouraging the responsible use of metrics.
  • Find out the value of the beamplot and its use within a wider evaluation context.
  • Learn about the new visualisation tool: Author Impact Beamplots, how to read a beamplot and its limitations.
  • Learn how Author Impact Beamplots use percentiles instead of the raw citation counts.
