Benchmarking your research career – tools and techniques 

How do you know if you are ready to start applying for grants? Should you apply for that promotion in the next round? This session will look at ways that you can benchmark your career, and show you the tools available to you to check that you are on track and help you stay on track.

Introduction to Bibliometrics to inform your research 

This session will introduce you to three bibliometric tools that you can use to find citation counts, your Field Weighted Citation Index (FWCI), and how you rank in your Field of Research (FoR) codes. Additionally, you can find the metrics associated with the journals in your field. Enrol via iEnrol.
