The Impact of Research: Advice on your Publication Strategy


Speakers


Abstract

Research productivity and impact are important drivers of the reputation of both institutes and individuals. Many measures and rankings do exist, but not all rankings ‘are created equal’. This event brings together three perspectives on research impact: The academic (citation) impact of institutions as measured by bibliometric indicators through the ISI Web of Knowledge (Anthony van Raan), the impact trend in the field of management showing the rising position of non-American business schools (Charles Baden Fuller) and the extended impact monitoring, going beyond the ISI Impact Factor (Anne-Wil Harzing).
 
The combination of these perspectives will provide a rich understanding of the way business schools and individual researchers can benefit from impact measures to strengthen their publishing strategy and to improve the long term impact of their work.
