This page is aimed at PGR and research staff members of HYMS and provides links to information sources from both the University of Hull and York Libraries. As a member of HYMS you are entitled to use the Research Support Services at both institutions so do explore both university links and support where given.
Bibliometrics provides a quantitative analysis of the influence of research. It looks at the citation counts for articles to see how they have impacted on the research landscape and with the introduction of altmetrics looks at how the influence of the article can be measured. It stands alongside qualitative measures of excellence such as peer review. Information and links are available via Hull and York.
Online and workshop course details are available at:
