Introduction to the Faculty Tools Guide

Here is a guide that will assist faculty with publishing-related tasks like identifying and evaluating journals, delving into impact factors, organizing references for an upcoming journal article, and analyzing their own citations. We also present resources related to the funding of academic research. These are either Library databases, resources we help to host, or general web materials of interest. Other resources might be available through Academic Computing or through academic departments. Please explore your other options.

To do research in the literature of your academic field, please look at our other subject-specific research guides.

Also, be advised that we also have a guide that specifically addresses Journal Citation Reports and Impact Factors.  If you wish to delve into this subject more fully, please consult that guide.
