Research impact & engagement

Researchers may need to establish the impact or influence of their research. This impact may include academic influence, as well as economic or societal impact on the community.

The Impact toolkit published by the UK Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) includes a range of economic and societal impact measures, together with examples and case studies.

Research impact report

Researchers submitting grant funding applications may request a research impact report from the Library. The report prepared by faculty liaison staff collates information about a researcher and the impact of their research, including:

  • updated researcher profiles, e.g. ORCiD, Scopus AuthorID, Google Scholar
  • author metrics
  • publication metrics from relevant sources
  • publication, exhibitions and performance reviews
  • Australian & international library holdings of publications
  • media reports & interviews
  • Government publication details
