Use research metrics

Access the Research Metrics Toolkit

The Research Metrics Toolkit is a self-help guide for learning about and accessing research metrics.

To get started, you can choose a discipline from the landing page to access contextualised guidance and tips, or access Information about Author Profiles or Information about Metrics to find out about individual metrics and data sources.

ORCID and other researcher profiles

Find out how to get an ORCID ID and link it to Deakin Elements to help claim and manage your publications.

Learn about other researcher profiles like your Scopus Author ID, Publons profile, or Google Scholar profile on the Research Metrics Toolkit.

Request a research metrics report

To request assistance with research metrics for a funding or promotions application please complete the Research Metrics Request Form.

Please include as much detail as possible about:

  • the purpose of your request
  • the type of information you need
  • when you need the information.

Please note that in most cases we will require two weeks' notice to assist you.
