Tracking Policy Impact of Your Research Using Overton – Training Session (via Zoom)

Overton is a searchable policy database that indexes millions of policy documents, guidelines, publications and working papers from national, regional and city governments, think tanks, policy-focused NGOs and IGOs, etc. all over the world. By tracking the citations and mentions of scholarly publications in policy documents, Overton is also an analytic tool that helps researchers (i) understand the reach and influence of their work in the policy space, (ii) identify potential funding and collaboration opportunities from the citing policy sources, and (iii) collect evidence to support research impact evaluation, grant reporting, professional advancement, and more.

While funders are requiring demonstrable evidence to assess how their grants have translated into benefits and impact beyond academia (e.g. UGC’s RAE 2026), Overton will help you track and demonstrate your policy impact.

Faculty members, Departmental Administrators or any interested parties are welcome to attend the training. Please register here.
