Why is Research Impact Important?

It is important that researchers know their impact as it can help:

  • Support applications for tenure or promotion;
  • Justify requests for grants and other funding;
  • Quantify, and determine how their research is being used;
  • Identify other researchers or institutions that are using their work; and
  • Identify other researchers, and potential collaborators, in their field.
