Research Impact for STEMM - a self-help guide

This guide will assist researchers in the STEMM disciplines to find bibliometrics to demonstrate the impact of their research outputs.

Journal Impact

The Journal Impact Factor (JIF) is a metric used by Clarivate Analytics to help rank journals within Subject categories, it is NOT recommended to use the metric as an indication of research performance. It would also be advisable NOT to use the Citescore as a stand alone metric for similar reasons.


NOTE: It is always important to read the requirements of the funding agency or other applications to determine if Journal Metrics will be applicable or allowed.
