IAP 2015: Overview of Citation Analysis

Jan 28, 10:00am to 12:00pm

Whose articles cite a body of work? Is this a high-impact journal? How might others assess my scholarly impact? Citation analysis is one of the primary methods used to answer these questions.

Academics, publishers, and funders often study the patterns of citations in the academic literature in order to explore the relationships among researchers, topics, and publications, and to measure the impact of articles,  journals, and individuals.

IAP 2015: Getting Started, Getting Funded

Jan 08, 1:00pm to 5:00pm

Increasingly, conducting innovative research requires resources that exceed those readily on-hand to the individual scholar. You can use research funding to access a wider set of research methods, to accelerate your research project, expand its scope and depth, and increase its impact. This short course provides an overview of the types and sources of funding available for research support, and introduces the fundamental elements of planning, proposal writing, and management for "sponsored" projects.

3D printing for fun and science? A conversation about digital fabrication, the library, and you. (IAP)

Jan 14, 1:00pm to 2:30pm

Digital fabrication has changed considerably over the last few decades. Barriers to use have fallen, and technologies that were once the purview of specialized researchers are now sold in retail outlets like Sears, Staples and the Microsoft store. Schools and libraries have even begun getting into the act, from NC State to the Chicago Public Library.
