Altmetrics: Article Level Metrics for Measuring the Impact of Research

It takes time for your work to be formally cited by other researchers and common citation indexes do not work equally well for all disciplines and research methods. Altmetrics (article level metrics) are faster and wider-ranging measures of the impact your work is having on other researchers and the general public. This workshop will introduce you to current altmetrics tools and how they’re being used to demonstrate the value of research.

Date: Friday, November 9, 2018

home Ellis Library, Workshops Mizzou EQ Workshops

Mizzou EQ Workshops

Entrepreneur Quest is a program for any undergraduate or graduate student with a venture idea or just wanting to get engaged with other student innovators and entrepreneurs at Mizzou. Much more than a pitch competition with $30,000 at stake, EQ is an education program that involves engaging workshops, mentoring, demo days, and coaching from industry and subject matter experts.  This opportunity will provide the most significant capital, to date, to student-entrepreneurs.  Part of the program involves a series of workshops this fall:

  • September 24, 5:30 – 7 p.m. – General Information Session
  • October 1, 5:30 – 7 p.m. – Business Model Canvas
  • October 8, 5:30 – 7 p.m. – Essentials of a Business Plan
  • October 15, 5:30 – 7 p.m. – How to Pitch your Venture and the Application Process

These workshops will be conducted simultaneously with UMKC, UMSL, and MS&T via ZOOM.  All workshops will be held in Ellis 114A and will include pizza.

The pitch competition to determine our 10 Mizzou semi-finalists will be the morning of November 12th in Monsanto Auditorium.  The 10 teams chosen will then progress to a more formal online program during Spring Semester 2019.  EQ is a program that will get students working on their ventures throughout the year.  These initial workshops are just the beginning.  Hope to see you there!
