Research Impact Measurement is a pressing issue for academic and research libraries. Aimed at library and information professionals working in research-intensive institutions, Providing Research Support is a practical guide on how to assist academic and research staff in assessing and demonstrating research impact. Providing Research Support also addresses making strategic publishing choices and will equip library and information professionals with strategies, resourcing requirements, tools and tips by providing solutions to real-life problems in demonstrating the impact of research. The book presents each problem as a scenario and describes not only the steps to reaching a solution but also how to prepare, write and present final reports. The first section of the book introduces the methods academic libraries are employing to support research, and the second part goes on to consider both quantitative and qualitative methods for measuring research impact. Next, the discussion moves on to planning and managing research impact services. The final section provides templates for reporting findings.
