Research metrics and publishing

As a signatory of DORA, it's important that we adopt a responsible use of publication metrics when applied as indicators of research quality. Guidance is available on the use of research metrics and using researcher profile tools to promote your research outputs.

For publishing advice and support, we have the University of Nottingham Publication Framework, which includes a publication checklist indicating the key actions to take at each stage of the publication process.
