In this Moodle lesson we introduce critical appraisal skills and briefly recap the key study design elements of randomised controlled trials. There is also a link to a sample paper and appraisal checklist for RCTs, which you can use to practice your appraisal skills once you have viewed the online tutorials.

The course, aimed at researchers, covers a basic introduction to bibliometrics, and some of the most commonly used bibliometric indicators. It discusses the importance of the responsible use of bibliometric data, the problems and limitations associated with its use, and which indicators are appropriate in which contexts. It will show how to use Web of Science and Scopus to discover bibliometric data for individual papers and authors, and how to use InCites to discover aggregated and normalised bibliometric data for groups of papers and for institutions. It assumes you are comfortable with navigating and searching in Web of Science and/or Scopus; if you are new to these tools, we would recommend completing the Search Strategies for Literature Searching course first.
This course will give a basic introduction to using InCites and MyOrganisation, running simple queries and exporting data, and introduce some more complex topics such as analysing collaborations. It will also discuss which normalised bibliometric indicators can be used responsibly to give a meaningful idea of citation impact. This course is targeted at administrators and academic staff.
This course of five short videos and quizzes is intended to introduce you to some practical tasks in bibliometrics and citation analysis, using Web of Science, Scopus, and Google Scholar. It is aimed at researchers.
