Evaluating Scholarly Publications for Tenure and Promotion: Introduction

This guide will help you find evidence of the value of your publications to use in your FAR.


This guide will help you find evidence of the quality, value, or impact of your scholarly work and creativity. It is also a tool to help you understand the quality and impact of your colleagues' work even if you are unfamiliar with publication practices or creative activities in their discipline. The guide is not exhaustive, and you may use other methods to demonstrate the value of your research/creativity as appropriate. Please let us know if you use methods that we should add to this guide.

Not all metrics and methods described in this guide are appropriate to every discipline or type of creative activity. Select those that are most relevant for your publications and activities.

Ask Us For Help!

We encourage you to ask your subject librarian for help with gathering evidence of your scholarship and creative activity.
