Publication Date



Finding evidence that documents the impact and value of your scholarship can be challenging. No single system exists to evaluate all faculty scholarship. Of those systems that are available, it can be difficult to find appropriate evidence for your tenure portfolio.

This presentation will explore traditional evaluation tools, such as Journal Citation Reports and Impact Factors, as well as alternative publication and usage data resources. Additionally, the presentation will provide strategies to help you find out how discoverable your scholarship is and ways you can promote your work.


Presentation given as a part of the Boise State University Center for Teaching and Learning workshops.
