Demonstrating the value of your contributions to a research field is a fundamental part of building the case for promotion and tenure. This session will set the stage for the workshop series by describing scholarly impact and why it is important for making your promotion and tenure case. It will introduce various methods for tracking the influence and readership of your work, as well as describing your scholarly contributions in concrete, numerical terms with established measures.
