Faculty Week: updates on tools for promotion and tenure


ISI Web of Science

Aug. 20, 2013 – The Virginia Tech Libraries have expanded access to tools faculty can use in the tenure and promotion process.

Web of Science: Citation Databases from Thomson now include citations for books and conference proceedings, supplementing the tracking of article citation counts this database has long provided. The new Data Citation Index from Thomson Web of Science will provide for tracking of citations for data sets.

We'll soon offer additional information on using altmetrics to track the influence of scholarly output beyond journal impact factors, the h-index, and citation counts.
