The impact we are referring to is not about journal factors, bibliometrics or H indices.
It is what demonstrable difference is being made, outside of academia, in the real world.
How can I go about understanding my impact?
Impact is important for everyone – from individuals through to organisations. Whether you’re involved in academia, medicine, industry, policymaking, science, finance, or many other fields, you should focus on your impact. Impact also extends beyond the broad social, environmental and economic categories outlined above.
There are many ways you can improve your impact. These include upskilling your team and creating programmes to embed impact into all of your activities.

Our ImpactTracker product is a world-leading solution for capturing, understanding, analysing and demonstrating impact.
