Last year Hatef Madani, Impact Leader at the ITM School, looked over how the school could contribute to improve the overall KTH ranking. There are many criteria for ranking universities, but his conclusion was that among dissemination and citations there were plenty of room for improvement.

“We realized that getting better at publication strategies and improving citations is a low hanging fruit”, Hatef says.

ITM has a lot of competent people, and we need to learn from each other, he explains. In a series of articles, we’ll meet a few ITM researchers who will share their experience of scientific impact.

“All of us can learn something new and get better in this field. These researchers are good at getting citations and high scores in Altmetric. I’m eager to hear what their tricks are.”

“In the long run I hope that we will learn how to improve communicating our research findings as a part of our mindset and working culture”, Hatef says.

The article series start 18th of March in the newsletter.
