researchers are obliged to include a variety of metrics in their
applications for grant funding, and promotion and tenure files. They
also develop online profiles to enhance their reputation and attract
collaborators. Whether welcome or worrisome, researcher profiles and
metrics have become commonplace. So how can librarians help?

begins with a conversation. Discover how to put researchers at ease with
the notion of metrics, and what metrics can and cannot convey. Find out
more about how to select the best metrics for different disciplines and
at different stages of the research career. And learn how institutional
initiatives, such as instituting the ORCID researcher iD and providing
early education, can provide them with lifelong benefits. By helping to
clarify and codify certain processes, you will ensure your researchers
are their own best advocates.
