Check out the Metrics Toolkit, developed by Indiana University in partnership with Altmetrics and Force11.
The Metrics Toolkit provides evidence-based information about research metrics across disciplines, including how each metric is calculated, where you can find it, and how each should (and should not) be applied. You’ll also find examples of how to use metrics in grant applications, CVs, and promotion dossiers.
There are two ways to use the Toolkit. Explore metrics to quickly look up the metrics you want to learn more about, by name. Or you can choose metrics that are best for your unique use case by filtering based on the broad discipline, research output, and desired impact.
The following are examples of metrics that are commonly used by various academic disciplines.
