In this seminar, we invite you to explore critical questions surrounding  the changing landscape of research impact and evaluation. What are "altmetics?" How do they align with or disrupt traditional, citation-based metrics? How can scientists, health care professionals, and technologists leverage social media to increase the impact of their work? Ultimately, how valuable or problematic are measures like h-Index and Impact Factor?

In addition to an outstanding lineup of speakers, this seminar will include a Research ImpactClinic, designed to assist attendees with all their research impact needs. ImpactClinic attendees will have the opportunity to:

  *   Sign up for an ORCID ID <http://orcid.org/> and Research Gate account
  *   Receive demonstrations of Scopus and other tools for calculating research impact metrics
  *   Have their h-Index calculated & learn to retrieve Impact Factor scores for scientific articles
  *   Request a Mount Sinai PlumX profile <https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3X_3rRvdjFo> (Mount Sinai faculty)
