In this session the University Library will discuss the growing requirements to show research impact, provide suggestions on how and where to find it, and ways of incorporating a narrative and evidence of impact into your grant applications and promotions.
This seminar presentation looks at the following:
1. What can research impact be?
2. Where to find research impact: journal and book (chapter) citations, collaboration with other researchers and industry, conferences, sitting on boards, research being used in government papers, research framework being implemented in research and/or industry, you/ your research being discussed in the public discourse (radio, TV, newspaper, podcasts, interviews), research being used by industry (textbooks, inventions (patents))
