Assess your Impact in the Health Sciences

If you're a health sciences researcher, you can access specialized consultations and trainings on research impact metrics and tools.

Use our assessment guide

Our research impact assessment guide is designed to help you explore common methods and tools for assessing your scholarly impact in the health sciences, including citation tracking in both peer-reviewed literature and across news outlets, social media, and policy documents.

The guide offers links to broad assessment models that help you to consider impact indicators beyond publication-based metrics.
