Attend Training for InCites, an Online Research Evaluation Tool
October 28, 2019

UT faculty and staff are invited to join webinars on November 6, 7, and 14 to learn about the InCites online research analytics and evaluation tool. Webinars led by a specialist from the Web of Science Group are available exclusively to UT Knoxville participants and are tailored to campus stakeholders.

InCites can help you showcase your research program’s strengths, identify influential researchers, analyze institutional productivity, and visualize collaborators around the world. Learn more about the InCites tool and its possible uses at UT Knoxville.

InCites, now available to the UT Knoxville campus, relies on the Web of Science Core Collection databases for its reports. The Web of Science Core Collection includes published research from all disciplines, including the Sciences, Social Sciences, and the Arts and Humanities.

The following webinars are sponsored by the Office of Research and Engagement. Sessions are free to participants, but registration is required. Read more and register for webinars here.
