Evaluating Research Impact

How do you measure Impact, both academic and societal?

Traditional indicators for measuring academic impact such as citations, h-index, etc. are still in place though they undergo some criticism. The information specialists at TU Delft Library can help you in assessing your scholarly output and publication strategy based on selected bibliometric analysis. They can provide you, for example, with Impact Factors of both traditional journals as well as open access journals, with journal rankings or journal citation reports. You can naturally do it all yourself – get some tips via the LINK below.

Societal impact, however, is about bringing science to society, and is thus measured differently. As of 2015 a new Standard Evaluation Protocol (SEP) for Research Assessments in the Netherlands becomes effective. The SEP describes the methods used to assess research conducted at Dutch universities with a strong component of societal impact. Consult the SEP protocol via the LINK below.
