Increase your publishing success by understanding the metrics that matter

Publishing Metrics: Understanding the Basics and Using Them to Your AdvantageJohn Bond, Publishing Consultant at Riverwinds Consulting, brings more than 25 years experience in scholarly publishing to TAA’s Summer Webinar Series on Thursday, June 25th as he presents “Publishing Metrics: Understanding the Basics and Using Them to Your Advantage”.

Daily, Bond advises authors and publishers on creating and delivering great content. He is the author of 4 books and as a publisher has overseen the publishing of 20,000 journal articles and 500 scholarly books. In this 90-minute interactive discussion, he’ll give you a simple, approachable explanation of the common basic metrics and ways to use them to your advantage.

Metrics has become a trendy word that is often glazed over or misunderstood. Impact Factor, Altmetrics, h-index, Eigenfactor score, article views/downloads, copies sold, citations, and others need not be a foreign language. Mastering these metrics in a simple, defined way can help you target the best journal to submit your work to. They can help you create a more attractive book proposal and find the best publisher for your new textbook idea.

As part of the webinar, you’ll receive a descriptive handout with examples so you can choose a couple and use these powerful tools to help with your publishing goals.
