Publication Strategies

GML staff can help define the best journal target for your research paper. Bibliometric tools such as Journal Citation Reports® offer a systematic, objective means to evaluate journals, with quantifiable, statistical information based on citation data. Librarians can use this tool to compile articles' cited references in JCR that are used to measure research influence and impact at the journal and category levels, as well as to show the relationship between citing and cited journals. Using Journal Citation Reports , authors and editors can identify the most appropriate, influential journals in which to publish. For more information, contact the Gorgas Memorial Library staff.

Research Program Evaluation

Using a variety of information techniques and ISI Web of Knowledge® tools (e.g., Web of Science, Journal Citation Reports, and Essential Science Indicators®), GML staff can provide a thorough, evidence-based look at the research performance of a program area by examining its publications and viewing the journal article impact and strength of research influence using citation metrics.

Benefits of research evaluations:
  • Provide a means to quantify and document research impact
  • Establish data-driven justifications for future requests for funding
  • Quantify return on research investment
  • Enable the discovery of how research findings are being used
  • Identify similar research projects and possible collaborators
