Department & College Reports

Please Note: The University Libraries’ support for PlumX profiles will be changing at the end of July, 2020. In early August, the Libraries will begin sunsetting all current PlumX profiles; instead, your PlumX data will be available via your SelectedWorks author dashboard. This dashboard is available via the drop-down menu in the upper right-hand corner of any page in SelectedWorks. For more information about this change, please contact the Digital Commons Team at (912) 478-4056 or


PlumX Report ScreenshotsPlumX reports give department heads and administrators a way to know what is going on with research in their academic units and campus-wide. Reports are available for each researcher and each academic unit. Compare units, analyze impact, and more.

Furthermore, researchers do more than publish articles. With PlumX reports, you can track all of your researchers' output and the many ways they communicate about it.

The accuracy and completeness of PlumX profiles is impacted by many factors, including data collection methods, quality and completeness of data, and other technological constraints. The University Libraries encourage faculty and programs to be skeptical of all metrical tools and system-generated impact data, and to consider a wide array of usage and impact indicators when evaluating or comparing faculty or programs. For more information, please review the University Libraries' Statement on Metrical and Impact Data Tools, Including PlumX.

Available department and college-level PlumX reports include:

  • Basic metric counts
  • Research artifacts overview
  • Research artifacts by publication year
  • Researchers overview
  • Subgroups overview
  • Productivity
  • Sunburst

Basic department and college-level PlumX reports are publicly available via the PlumX Profiles platform. Analytic reports are password-protected and accessible by department heads and college administrators. All data and graphs may be exported to Excel, or as images or PDFs.

To request a username and password to run unit-level analytic reports, department heads and college administrators may contact the Digital Commons Team.
