 From the Nobel Prize to the poster of the year: quantifying honorific award prestige across disciplines
Academic Analytics now tracks more than 12,000 honorific awards of national or international importance. Journals have impact factors and research grants have dollar amounts, but how can we know the relative prestige of a specific honor? Join us to learn how Academic Analytics is approaching “relative award prestige” and how you can leverage this approach in your decision-making and campus nomination strategy.
Obtaining and analyzing career data for Ph.D.s and post-docs

Learn more about this approach and the applications it enables, from fundraising to building public confidence in the role of graduate education.
