Metric Toolkit

Developed by a group of international Information Professionals:  

"The Metrics Toolkit provides evidence-based information about research metrics across disciplines, including how each metric is calculated, where you can find it, and how each should (and should not) be applied.  You’ll also find examples of how to use metrics in grant applications, CVs, and promotion dossiers."


Have you got your ORCID?

An ORCID ID is a unique researcher identifier that identifies you and your work.

Requiring ORCID in Publication Workflows: Open Letter.   Major publishers have committed to requiring ORCID iDs in the publishing process for their journals and invite other publishers to do the same. See a list of journals/publishers here

If you are a Monash researcher with a Pure (myResearch) profile, Instructions on how to get your ORCID identifier for Monash researchers can be found here

If you do not have access to a Monash profile then register for your ORCID identifier here
