Interesting preprint on the Use of Journal Impact Factors in Academic Review, Promotion, & Tenure Evaluations. 40% of 129 Research-Intensive HEIs refer to IFs in their promotion/review guidance; only a small number were sceptical about their use. #AcWri https://t.co/egdI9MbTSX https://t.co/3U8Ff5j43n
ICYMI - there is a new #scholcomm paper on the #ImpactFactor and review, promotion, and tenure. 87% of institutions that mentioned JIF supported its use.
