Training opportunities for Research Evaluation Support

Led by Kristi Holmes (@kristiholmes)

Libraries are becoming more and more involved with activities related to assessing and understanding research impact. Evaluation and assessment extends beyond basic bibliometrics and is an important way that libraries can support campus initiatives, get involved with research evaluation, and facilitate strategic planning activities with our expertise and resources.

I hope that we can use the twitter chat this week to accomplish a couple of key things:
  • Share some of the training opportunities that might exist for librarians and how you can get involved
  • Identify existing training gaps and brainstorm a bit about how we might be able to address these needs
Some interesting opportunities…


…and a great class at NIH, Bibliometrics for Portfolio Analysis -

International School on Research Impact Assessment
ISRIA was created in response to this growing demand for skilled people who can demonstrate the impact of research investments and/or activities. Through an intense, four-day course, participants have the opportunity to enhance their skills for the planning and development of assessment studies, to better understand how best to report and implement research impact assessments, and how to use those tools and techniques within their own organisations. Most importantly, participants have the chance to create lasting connections with the people they meet and to become a part of a growing global community of practice.

Centre for Science and Technology Studies, Leiden University, The Netherlands
CWTS offers a range of courses on using bibliometric analyses for research management and research evaluation. Courses are regularly held in Leiden and we are also pleased to organize tailor-made on-site training courses. This training provides users of bibliometric analyses with the knowledge and skills they need to interpret bibliometric statistics properly and usefully. Sessions include: Measuring Science and Research Performance, Advanced Citation Analysis, Bibliometric Network Analysis and Science Mapping Using VOSviewer, and Tailor-made Training Courses.

The European Summer School for Scientometrics

esss offers training covering major aspects of quantitative analysis of science and technology and is especially designed for the needs of science policy makers, research quality managers, scientists and information specialists & librarians.

Attendees can expect a sound overview of state-of-the-art scientometric methods and  the opportunity to familiarize themselves with the most commonly used data bases, to learn how to construct relevant indicators and how to interpret the data. Theoretically imparted knowledge will be consolidated in hands-on trainings whenever suitable in order to guarantee a sustainable learning experience.
