Why would I include citation information in my Evidence Portfolio?

In order to demonstrate the impact of your research in your Evidence Portfolio, it is useful to be able to show how much and where your research has been cited. This could be both research published in the time period for this round, 2012-2017, or earlier publications cited over this time as evidence of the current impact of your research.

Where can I find citation information?

Scopus is the largest proprietary citation database in the world. It has some useful analysis tools to help you get a better picture of your research, find out about these tools in this short video.

Google Scholar  is a large database and covers a wide range of documents, including books and other non-journal literature but it lacks the quality control of proprietary databases such as Scopus. Google Scholar has some useful features for analysing citations. Watch this short video for information on these features.
