Workshop on Web of Science InCites tool – places still available

Places are still available on a workshop next week (Thursday 28 February, 1400-1500) that will guide academic staff and researchers through InCites and Web of Science (WoS), two powerful tools that can play an important part in any research process. See below for full details of the workshop. You can book your place through the University’s Coursebooking site. An earlier occurrence of this workshop is taking place next Tuesday, 26 February, but is already fully booked.

WoS is a citation index that offers comprehensive citation and publication searches across multiple databases to enable in-depth exploration of research.

InCites Benchmarking & Analytics is a customized, web-based research evaluation tool that allows you to monitor collaboration activity, identify influential researchers, showcase strengths, and discover areas of opportunity. 

Independently or together, these tools can be used to create powerful analytics that complement the research process. The software provider (Clarivate) of these products was recently awarded a contract to supply the Research Excellence Framework (REF2021) with citation analysis.

This short session, aimed at academic staff, early career researchers and PhD students who have published (or are on the point of publishing), will guide you through the use of InCites and Web of Science. The session will include:

·         Hints and tips for using Web of Science and InCites

·         Advanced searches in Web of Science and InCites

·         Evidencing research strengths, and collaborations

·         Notes on Open Access and Full text publications

·         Analytics: Citations, Collaborations, Journals, Authors, and Trends

·         Brief overview of Alternative metrics

You can book your place on this workshop through the University’s Coursebooking site but please pay attention to the two actions required of you before attending the session.
