Research impact & engagement

Researchers may need to establish the impact or influence of their research. This impact may include academic influence, as well as economic or societal impact on the community.

The Impact toolkit published by the UK Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) includes a range of economic and societal impact measures, together with examples and case studies.

Research metrics report

Researchers submitting grant funding applications and/or seeking academic promotion may request a research metrics report from the Library. The report prepared by your librarian collates information about a researcher and the impact of their research, including:

  • updated researcher profiles, e.g. CRO, ORCiD, Scopus AuthorID, Google Scholar
  • author metrics
  • publication metrics from relevant sources
  • publication, exhibitions and performance reviews
  • Australian & international library holdings of publications
  • media reports & interviews
  • Government publication details

Due to the complexity of the report, please allow at least a week for the completion of your report. As part of this process we may work with you to update your researcher profiles, e.g. CRO, ORCiD, Scopus AuthorID, Google Scholar.

Request a Research Metrics Report, or contact your Faculty team for further information or assistance.
