Research Visibility & Impact


Research visibility and impact (RVI) uses strategies and practices to increase the discoverability of research, locate areas of impact, and communicate that impact for purposes such as recognition, receiving grant awards, and achieving promotion or tenure. UH Libraries provides services to faculty, researchers, research groups, and graduate students interested in increasing their visibility and determining the impact of their research within academia and society.
