Are you being cited?

This module is part of the Research and Writing Skills for Academic and Graduate Researchers. The number of times your work has been cited by other academics and writers is one indication of your research impact. However, there are other qualitative measures of the value and impact of your research. This module will introduce you to the traditional and non-traditional ways of measuring research impact.
