Learn about using metrics for research and grant writing

FRASER Coast health professionals will have another opportunity to enhance their skills locally at University of Southern Queensland Fraser Coast on Tuesday, March 31.

USQ senior nursing lecturer Julie Martyn said Amberyn Thomas will present next week's workshop hosted by the Fraser Coast Health Professionals Local Education and Research Nexus.

She said titled Research Metrics, the session would focus on using metrics for research and grant writing and topics included tracking citation metrics, measuring research performance, tools and why metrics mattered.

Ms Martyn said Dr Thomas joined the University of Queensland library in 2008 and was currently the scholarly communication and digitisation services director.
