Navigating A Flawed System: Demystifying Research Assessment

How your research is evaluated can have significant implications for your career trajectory, but the process of research assessment is often unclear and flawed. In this session, you will be introduced to a team of librarians dedicated to help you:

  • navigate the publication and research assessment landscape,
  • dive into the most common metrics being used today to assess research impact, and
  • discuss the growing movement to change how scholarship is shared and evaluated.

Join us to discuss how the “economies of prestige” in academia influence your career and what you can do about it.
