This guide was designed to introduce authors and administrators to tools that they can use to aggregate their research publications and scholarly work. Research output is often described by measuring number of publications or other scholarly contributions, number of times a paper has been cited or other indicators.
Total number of publications or other scholarly contributions a researcher has produced is a traditional measure of research output. There are many resources to assist with this process, each with their unique strengths and limitations. Below are tools available to Penn State researchers to facilitate capturing and maintaining research output.
