Data for the Humanities and Lettered Social Sciences:
Metrics for all Disciplines
Hosted by Richard Wheeler, Senior Advisor, Academic Analytics, Professor of English Emeritus & Dean of the Graduate College Emeritus at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.
Data-driven analysis of scholarship should be available to all academic disciplines, and Academic Analytics strives to produce meaningful data tailored to each scholarly field. This webinar showcased several new features of our database and analytical toolkit that are especially valuable to humanities and lettered social science scholars where traditional citation and research grant metrics are not ideal. We demonstrated enhanced time-windows to expand the number of years data are tracked, deep and sophisticated book publications profiles and comparisons, and nuanced treatment of honorific awards from our massive proprietary database of honors.
