Traditional metrics, such as the h-index and journal impact factors, are used to measure the scholarly impact of research. However, in the current climate of accountability by funding providers, fund recipients would benefit from a more comprehensive impact management system (IMS) to facilitate the capture and reporting of narratives (including metrics) about research impact in the academy, on social policy, in industry, and ultimately with the public.

Librarians have always been good at telling and facilitating stories. Research support librarians can use their storytelling skills to contribute to the implementation and administration of an impact management system. Being able to translate research impact into harvestable and reportable metadata is the key.
