Gather a evidence to demonstrate that people are reading, engaging, and using your work. This evidence can include traditional citation metrics, web metrics for downloads and views, and altmetrics to capture engagement with your work or particular audiences.



Start with your story and back it up with a range of evidence - quantitative and qualitative, citation metrics, web metrics, and altmetrics - to make your case.

Want help understanding what metrics can be useful in your dossier? We can help you create easy to understand visualizations with your evidence. Check out the Metrics Toolkit to learn how to use metrics responsibly. Email us to schedule a one-on-one consultation.
